Amazon Video…Protecting Content in the Wild
Filmmaker Cirina Catania loves a challenge but her recent project of filming survival training videos in the wilds of the Peruvian Amazon added a new chapter to her 30 years of experience. Temperatures hovered close to 100 degrees and the humidity was 87 percent.
In addition, she faced severe equipment and weight restrictions in capturing the action in the jungle and on the river.
For capture, she used a water-resistant Sony NX70, Sony A7r and two GoPros. Solar power was used to charge her cameras, sound equipment and storage devices, with cameras and sound equipment having the highest priority.
Her MacBook Pro (in a water-resistant Explorer case) was limited to media management so a single charge would last as long as possible.
To protect the beautiful scenes she was capturing, she saved it on several OWC 480GB Envoy Pro EX SSD drives. She also backed up the irreplaceable content on a 1TB NEXTODi with occasional recharging when “spare” solar power was available.
She noted that both storage devices are “screaming fast,” which conserved precious battery power. Periodically, she would transfer the verified media from the Envoy Pro through the laptop to yet a third drive for more permanent storage … just in case.
Even though special ruggedized camera and production cases were the obvious first choice for the project, they were also too large and heavy for a trip where size and weight were at a premium.
Her solution was a lightweight, small waterproof case which can be purchased in any sporting goods store that would hold all of her film storage and still protect it from the environment.
“In wild and remote environments, filmmakers have to be very concerned about weight and reliability,” she emphasized. “In addition, equipment has to be compact, lightweight and able to withstand unpredictable and rapid weather changes.”
“Then you can focus 100 percent of your attention on shooting the best story possible.” she concluded.
The clear orange compact storage and backup solution worked so well that she now uses it on all of her projects.
