When it comes to harsh shooting environments, Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States, has to be at the top of the list. Cinematographer Evan Pesses endured a grueling shoot near the summit of this infamously dangerous mountain for the upcoming feature Altitude (2014), directed by Michael Ciulla. When Evan needed to select a camera stabilizer he chose Ready Rig. With the Ready Rig’s flexibility and hands free operation he was able to easily navigate uneven terrain and maintain stable images while on the run. Any other camera stabilizer or shoulder rig would have forced him to compromise safety and stability. Click on the link above to watch a quick video of Evan and the Ready Rig in action. More behind the scenes footage will be posted at a later time!
Film Synopsis: “A couple hiking Mount Whitney runs into a group of mountain men who develop a dark obsession with the young woman.” IMDB
