Great to see that the Bigfoot Files series has been such a hit with audiences!
Nepal's 'Yeti', the 'Sasquatch' of the States and Russia's 'Almaste' are all brought to life in these 3 x one hours and subjected to more rigorous scrutiny than usual.
Masterfully directed by Steven Clarke for Icon Films.
We travelled fast and light with a small crew, and the equipment had to augment this approach while maintaining some of the more cinematic qualities we were aiming for.
All three one hours were shot on a Red Epic, with an Angenieux Optimo lens package (the 16-42mm and the 30-80mm) together with a 300mm RedPro prime for some longer-lens moments.
For some of the more abstract dramatic sequences I utilised a cinevised Nikkor prime set to achieve shallow focus, flare and a more 'antique' look.
Aside from an Easyrig for the handheld moments I carried an ABC Lite minijib, a Hollywood Microdolly, a McWilliam's Eyeliner, a Litepanel set of 1x1's and Minis, a Canon 5Dmk3 and GoPros for occasional extreme rigging opportunities.
Here is an extended edit of some drama from the Russian film:
(Red Epic shooting 5K at 96fps, cinevised Nikkor AIS lenses and lots of flare!)
