DDU Episode 3!

Diaries Downunder Episode 3 is here, the last for the 2016 season. It’s been a great winter being part of the crew filming with Heath Patterson and editing each episode. Nick Hyne has done a fantastic job producing the 9th series in a row, which is quite the accomplishment.

He has also been the main talent for each of those years and continues to throw down each and every time. There are few people in the world that are as committed and passionate as he is about snowboarding and putting out the best product possible. Enjoy the episode below and head over to Diaries Downunder to watch all of the episodes from over the years.

42 Below Filming

It’s been a super fun week working on the 42 Below Cocktail Earth Cup.

I’ve been working with Nick Hyne and the Diaries Downunder produced 42 Below Cocktail Earth Cup with Johnny James on stills and the wizard that is Andy Bamford  on editing duties.

The event is a 3 day challenge for the 20 best bartenders from Australia and New Zealand as they compete for the title of Best Cocktail Bartenders.

We filmed around Queenstown choosing to shoot on the Sony A7s2 and Canon lenses. Most of the content was shot in 4K at 25fps with the exception of a small few. Media was delivered each day to Andy and he was tasked with putting together 60 second daily highlight reels for Facebook and Instagram before a final wrap up.

Highlights are below with the wrap up to follow tomorrow.

Diaries Downunder Ep 2!

Mount Cook Heli, as Good as it Gets!

In this episode we venture to the heart of the Southern Alps, Mount Cook National Park. Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain peak. Cascading out of the valley floor above Lake Pukaki – this is one of the more scenically epic locations in the world and we got to snowboard here – and it was incredible!

With the use of a helicopter, the crew are scooped up to a field of insane New Zealand terrain that is covered in ‘marshmallow-like’ knee deep powder snow. Nick Brown, Stef Zeestraten and Nick Hyne waste no time in finding every last nook and cranny on the mountain to jump off and hack to pieces.

Diaries Downunder Ep 1!

Diaries Downunder Episode 1 “Gems of Wanaka” is available online now!

For this episode we pulled together a crew that really knows how to ride powder, a crew of local rippers that knows the joys of finding incredible terrain and absolutely shredding it to pieces in their back yard. From the deepset backcountry experience of Will Jackways and Nick Brown to the unique, eyeball popping style of Mahi Mains – we really show the mountains of Wanaka at their true potential.

The crew head to Cardrona and Treble Cone in this episode and damn do they score it!! Winter has hit with a ferocious force and the crew hit the mountains of Wanaka from every angle. From the postcard worthy views of Treble Cone combined with the most epic terrain to complement a powder day (which the crew do) to the immaculate slopes of Cardrona, this episode is action packed with….action! Winter is here and it is doing a good job at continuing to deliver the goods!

Diaries Downunder Editing

I’m pleased to announce I have been contracted to Diaries Down Under for most of the week.

Diaries recently filmed some new content for NZSki aimed at showing tourists how to get everything they need before they head up to the Coronet and Remarkables ski fields.

I have been editing the footage in Final Cut Pro X delivering 1 x 20 and 1 x 30 second videos for hotel lobbies and the new downtown wifi.

LUMA Queenstown

The inaugural LUMA Southern Lights Project was held in the Queenstown Gardens this past weekend and I was part of the production team covering the event.
