This past December we got the chance to collaborate with an amazing Bozeman based company, Seacat Creative. Seacat Creative owner, Mark Seacat, asked Zack and myself to put together a Sitka film from the footage he shot on Carmen Island with the Foss family. Mark captured some decent footage. We had 5 days to put the film together. Right away we had our hands full organizing foreign footage. This was our first time piecing together a film with video that we had not shot first hand.
Adam Foss and Steven Drake would be helping the process by helping create storyboards and recording voiceover. Adam Foss and Mark Seacat had a first person account of the whole desert sheep hunt, so their input was critical in the creation of Band of 3. The next week we spent most of our days working til 2am.
Zack busted out the main sequence, while I worked on audio, motion graphics, and titles for the film. The long nights were aided with numerous Salmon Fly Honey Rye beers and the Adam Foss favorite, a large batch of dark and stormy cocktails.
Finally after a grueling week, we were in the final stages of post production. The final cut turned into a film that intertwines hunting and conservation into one inspirational piece. Most people don’t know that we were the editors behind this piece. Below is Band of 3.
