It's warm here in Upstate New York. Like really warm. Right now, it's 51 degrees. This entire week is forecast to be well above average. The warm, fair weather creates the perfect conditions to capture a sunset over a frozen body of water. Meltwater creates the perfect mirror to reflect the color of the day's last light. Winter is coming to an end and storm season is coming. Last night was only a beautiful reminder.
Iceland is the size of Ohio, but it feels vast and wild. it The landscape is more like a playground for giants. Huge rock formations and creeping blue glaciers exist in the south with only a few roads to access them. And the farmhouses and hotels that do exist out there seem even smaller in the empty spaces. The nights are heavy with zero light pollution.
A week along the coast was an eduction. The weather there is stronger and faster than anything we had encountered before. Our third day was spent in a severe gale from which we had to take shelter in a hotel at the foot of the Svínafellsjökull Glacier. But our time on the glacier was worth any amount of travel or logistical challenge.
Footage is being reviewed and complied and more content will be available soon. -Bulmer
This is a simple document of the day in the life of Geyser Creek is Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, New York. The park is a treasure, especially on foggy late-summer-almost-fall mornings.
September is here, and with its arrival, the cold morning and warm afternoons that mark the end of summer. As a photographer and filmmaker, this is my favorite time of year, probably because the days are a limited edition. The fall is fleeting, only a few weeks. The urgency to get out and experience in enhanced by the feeling that soon, all the color will be gone from the landscape.
Footage form various locations around the Northeast, New York, and New Jersey. Late summer sunlight stitches all these clips together. Summer fading is one of the most visually stunning times of the year in Upstate New York. The color at sunset always seems just a little deeper. The conditions produced by cool mornings and warm afternoons are so beautiful because they are a limited edition, soon to be replaced my the equally beautiful but monotone color palette of winter.
Clips from on-locations shoots in Burlington, Vermont, Petersburg, New York and Albany, New York.
B roll from a busy July in Upstate New York. Deep summer is my favorite time of the year, by far. August and September in New England make enduring the cold and gray months of January and February worth it. This Video Field Note spans from the city to the countryside all painted in the light of a late summer sunset.
The past few weeks have been painful to watch through the lens the 24 hour news cycle and through the statuses of friends on social media. I'm not going to claim I know what it's like to be either be black in America or a member of law enforcement. I just hope that our nation can find some middle ground and heal. What I do know is that I am against unjustified killings of anyone regardless of race or chosen profession. We are all Americans and need to remember we are tied to one another. Commonalitles are more important than differences.
Clips from a busy June in Upstate New York. Production on Iceland Rising in in full swing. Watch for new teasers in the next few weeks.
Blurry and overt saturated and deliciously lo-fi, shooting real film on the New Jersey shore.
What do you do when you are in your hometown shooting B roll for an upcoming project on a beautiful spring evening? You build an homage video showing just how pretty the Collar City can be. Enjoy Troy.
The weather is heating up and the landscape is filling in with green. The skies have been active this week and Nor'easter Films' shooting schedule has been just as busy. This is a collection of sights from the week.
What makes the Tour of the Battenkill in Washington County, New York such a special race in the minds of so many is the dirt. These dirt roads cutting though swaying inland seas of cornfields also symbolize summer for me. I am often storm chasing on roads exactly like this one. There is simple beauty in dirt farm roads that is easy to understand.
This was the scene last night of fisherman on the Hudson River from the Green Island Bridge in Troy, New York. I grew up in this city. I can see my first apartment in this video. Troy will always be home no matter where I live or travel. We probably all feel the sensation of viewing our collected personal histories in an image of our hometowns. In part, this one is mine. The sunsets the past few days have been spectacular because of unseen smoke in the air from a distant wildfire. I wait all winter for sunsets like this one.
Creating content is more than a process, it's a way of life. When speaking with other photographers and filmmakers, I find a common theme in the way we all view the world. As content creators, we define what we see in imaginary composition frames until we can actually record what we see in a beautiful and meaningful way. I try to shoot everyday and the lines between still images and video are often blurred.
Video Field Notes are clips from the process, a way of recording a location or a feeling in an informal way. They are my notebook as a filmmaker.
This scene was captured last night at the Tomhannock Reservoir in Valley Falls, New York. The afternoon was cold and windy on the shore, but back through the trees, the wind was all but gone and the sunshine was more than inviting after a gray winter. I don't tend to like Spring much, it's a stop over that is somewhere in-between two of my favorite seasons. And while most see new life, I can't wait for the deep greens of summer.
