My friends over at Rockhouse Motion have once again outdone themselves with their new reel, Roam This Place. In an industry where everyone is trying to be the next big thing Matt and Dustin move humbly along and consistently put out amazing video. With high quality photo and video equipment being more and more accessible, it’s becoming harder to set yourself apart when it comes to video production. These guys have no problem setting themselves apart. The reel that they just released, (below) showcases only the outdoor portion of their work. If you follow along on their Facebook Page or Blog, you can see that they do several other projects as well. However, outdoors is really where they belong at least that’s what I’m going to say because the footage is amazing and I’m selfish. We need more of this kind imagery to better document hunting and be the face of the industry.
After watching this a few times I couldn’t figure out why I liked it so much. Of course there’s great quality imagery, great editing, good content and cool music but it was just something, different. You know what it is? There’s not a single kill shot or gratuitous trophy shot. It’s easier to get lost in the sound and the imagery when you’re allowed to draw your own conclusions and relate to the scenes rather than be force fed the ending of the hunt.
Do yourself a favor, put it on full screen and crank the volume up a little!
