Water Connects Us All: As filmmakers, we spend a great deal of time off the grid in locations that are supposed to be pristine. Most times, one doesn't have to look too hard for evidence of humans. This video focuses more on the pollution you can't see with the naked eye. We are contaminating our groundwater and the organisms that populate the habitats near water sources at an alarming rate with discarded medication and cleaning products while abandoned mills and dams choke off life downstream.
This collection of B roll was shot on location in Albany and Rensselaer Counties of New York State. New York State is home to some truly beautiful natural areas that are easily accessible for hikers of all abilities.

Not all location video has to be stabilized and have high production value. Sometimes, the act of documenting an event unfolding in front of the lens is all the is required for a compelling video.
Here are two favorite severe storms from the 2015 storm season: The first clip is a wall cloud sweeping over farmland in Easton, New York. The second clip is a severe storm cell parked over the Hudson River at Troy, New York dumping immense amounts of rain just to the west of the camera position. Both are iPhone videos.
Looking forward to the 2016 storm season.
