Earlier this fall, the announcement of Sony's new FS7 camera really got my attention. This camera is capable of 4k internally, slow-motion up to 180fps and all in a compact size. It seems to be the perfect blend of commercial/film quality with documentary ergonomics. All that being said, it's still an $8k camera.
A month later, Sony announced a contest to win the FS7! I knew I wanted to enter and the first story that came to mind was Washaway Beach.
Years ago, my friend Mike took me to Washaway. I was blown away by the landscape (or lack there of) and it was a place I always wanted to revisit but never took the initiative. This contest was the perfect timing and excuse to get back out there with my buddy and figure out a film.
We spent two days out there filming, one week apart. In a week's time, the sea swallowed up half a house and was teetering on taking another. I couldn't believe my eyes. The stories and emotions that run through the dead end streets in the this eroding town were overwhelming.
I'm so happy with what we were able to create, but I realized that this story is much bigger than any 2 minute video. This project has not only inspired me but intrigued me by wanting to tell the bigger story.
I hope you enjoy what we created and I'm so grateful Mike was willing to share this special place with me, you, and the world.
Please share this video and let us know what you think!
