Return to Moose Pond
UPDATE June 2012: This was chosen as one of the five short films to be shown at the Lake Placid Film Forum!!
I usually do non-narrative short films. This one is different! My wife, son and I love to go wilderness camping. Where you canoe in with a tent, food and all you need to a remote site. The last several years we have not found the time to go, however our son is getting older and soon won’t be able to go with us, so we made sure to get away the summer of 2011.
It was a special trip and one that I felt needed some narration to explain how I was feeling about it all. Most of the music is by a friend of mine, Scott B. Adams from the CD “Listening to the Adirondacks”. Check him out on iTunes!
I hope you enjoy what is surely my most personal film to date.
On the technical side, I used a SONY EX1 and a Canon 7D along with a Konova slider. Only had room in the canoe for a real junky tripod, hence not much panning or tilting! I shot the 7D footage with the Technicolor cinestyle preset and graded with Magic Bullet Looks.
Let me know what you think of this departure from my normal videos!
I’ve been coming up to the Adirondacks with my family from Virginia for about 15 years, we try to hit a different area of the park each time. I love it so much that we’ve started looking for some little piece of it to maybe buy for ourselves. In researching the area around one potential home, I came across this video and immediately fell in love with Moose Pond! The deal didn’t work out, what a shame as it was only 1 mile from Moose Pond, but watching this video and your many other amazing works from across the Adirondacks only bolsters my desire to make this happen. Keep up the good work!

So glad you enjoyed the video. It’s a marvelous place. Too bad you didnt end up with a home near there but now you can visit a different place each time you come up. Thanks for stopping by!
