My storm chasing timelapse film “rain will come” won a Telly award for videography/cinematography! ( Click Here to see that video. ) Many thanks to my friends Ron Risman of Timelapseworkshops.com, Bill Reid, Matt Phelps, and Bob Conzemius from TempestTours.com, and the wonderful people at Peter Gabriel’s label, RealWorldMusic.com
captured most everything with a Canon 5Dmk4 with a Canon 11-24mm lens using a one-second interval, a stone bag on the tripod, and a favorite rock. In post-production, I used Adobe Lightroom Classic, LRTimelapse.com, and Adobe Premiere software. As I reviewed the images from the field for post-production the only song that came to mind was one “Red Rain” by Peter Gabriel.
As I processed the images and began editing footage, the edit seemed to just fall into place. The folks at Real World Music were so helpful and very supportive of the project. Many, Many Thanks! I hope you enjoy the video.
This year’s storms were very different, farther South and fast-moving. On the last day, we saw a tornado touch down in Andover, KS. We chased it for about 20 minutes until it roped up. Best to chase safely with experienced people like Tempest Tours. See the storm in the video below.
