Alaska is definitely one of the most beautiful places that we've got to shoot at this year. From shooting in downtown Anchorage to driving all the way up to Willow -- it was surreal being surrounded by snow covered peaks that seemed to tower over the horizon. I'm happy to finally post the short piece that we created for Canon to use this year at the 2011 NAB show. There is a longer version in the works that we are just about to finish up as well, but I thought I would write a bit about the project that we've been working on.
A couple months ago we were asked by Canon's CPS department to create a film that showcased the unique service that they provide. Part of their support program is that they are on-site at different events across the US to support pro's as they shoot. So, essentially if your lens breaks at a sporting event, they are right there to either fix it, or provide you with a new one to use for the event. They also have a clean and check program that they set up, so the night or two before an event starts, you can take your gear to them and they will clean it all for you there on the spot. Danielle and I have been CPS members for the past year and we love it. We've sent in our gear a ton this year to be cleaned, and its awesome to get your cameras + lenses back in pristine condition -- CPS has been a huge help for us on all our shoots this year.
