Hawaiian Source Light
Capturing in V-Log, Rizer experimented with a number of different LUTs to obtain a more neutral look
For Rizer, it was very satisfying to see the project come from sketches on a storyboard to real life footage. He felt the S1H was the perfect camera for running up the side of a mountain, through the woods, or shooting at a waterfall by himself with the kit and a tripod strapped to his backpack. “Hawai'i can be such a harsh environment,” explained Rizer, “but the S1H did everything that I needed it to do, which was awesome. I'm sure there are a lot of people viewing the video won't know the difference between anamorphic and spherical lenses, but if they can watch it and leave with a whisper, or a sense that the film feels just a little different, I think I accomplished what I was going for.”
