Overland Expo

Production finished on new Overland Expo video

Overland Expo 2014 — What do you dream? from ConserVentures on Vimeo.

We're really pleased with the results of our new promotional video for Overland Expo. We developed the storyline idea over a wonderful dinner at Bluefin in Tucson. Roseann did the production on Final Cut Pro on our new iMac, and the music is from a talented composer, Dan Phillipson.

Much of the film footage was shot by Jonathan, including the aerials in Arizona. The drone and GoPro combination worked beautifully to capture the storyline at Grand Canyon. You can follow some of our practice footage below.

We'll be taking the drone and a new GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition to East Africa in November to get some footage of wildlife and landscape for a new video project. Stay tuned.

Great event ~ great people

I'm still recovering from many months straight of planning and organizing the second annual Overland Expo, which finished up the 18th of April. The event was an enormous success, I am happy to say ~ thousands of people gathered from 35 U.S. states, 4 Canadian provinces, 25 countries, 5 continents and a subcontinent. We had 100 exhibitors and authors/filmmakers, but the real treat were all the people. We met so many fantastic new friends . . . Ted (Jupitalia.com), Nicole (RuggedRider.com), Ara (theoasisofmysoul.com), Lorraine (lorrainechittock.com), Grant (optimohatworks.com - thanks for the photo and the loan of the hats!), and Duncan (wildtrackers.com), Sarah (landroverexperience.com) . . . and we caught up with many old friends. We are a tribe of nomads and explorers, who come together once a year at Overland Expo to catch up and compare adventures. You can check out more photos on the website ovexpo.com, and Facebook.com/Overland-expo as well as video at Youtube.com/Overlandexpo. Hope to see you there next year.
