Infrared on Red

I've noted before the suitability of the Red movie camera for shooting near infrared footage and the suitability of infrared for shooting clouds and a superb example has now been brought to my attention.

This is the work of Glen Ryan and James van der Moezel and as Glen writes,
"... is only a very short section of a much larger project - in scope, duration and resolution (4K) - that I am currently working on with emerging cloud wrangler James van der Moezel."
He promises a six hour uncut version soon.

The Karst formations are near Wee Jasper in New South Wales and the video was part of a recent exhibition called Karst County held at the Belconnen Arts Centre in the Australian Capital Territory (Canberra). Here Glen Ryan's photos and video were exhibited alongside Phil Ryan's acrylic paintings.

The infrared video was shot with a Red camera using 'Nikon glass' and an R72 filter (presumably the Hoya of that ilk).

Watch the video at full HD resolution if you can ... preferably in a darkened room.
