Hey Everyone! For this week's reflective response, I'll be telling you about one of my favorite filmmakers, Jack and Finn Harries, also known as JacksGap. You can find their videos on their website, http://jacksgap.com/ or on their youtube channel,JacksGap. Jack and Finn are twins who share a passion for traveling and story-telling. They create documentaries, spot features, travel videos, vlogs, and their own little series. I love the videos and films they make, and they are also known for 'doing good' by spreading awareness for a cause they admire. In September of 2013, they signed up for the Rickshaw Run with 5 other friends and documented the whole 3 week adventure! In the Rickshaw Run, they have to travel across India, in 3 little Rickshaws. During their journey, they raised over $180,000 to go to the Teenage Cancer Trust Foundation. Their videos are very high quality and it is very clear that they put a lot of time and effort into their editing. The Rickshaw Run Series took a total of 6 TB of memory, which is a lot! Then in post production, they had to edit it all into what we can call the videos below. I really like this series because it's a very interesting adventure, and how they managed to put it all together is just amazing! The shots they used were great! They used a steady cam, tripod, and many different intricate rigs for stabilization, and anything else was hand-held with a point-and-shoot. Most of the footage was shot with a Canon 5d Mark iii! I like that there were so many different shots, composition and angles; they offered a variety of it! It made the story more captivating. They had time-lapses, arc-shots, bridging, wides, mediums, close-ups, and of course, lots of handheld shots. Below is the 4 part series of the Rickshaw Run.
