Notes & More Information
Directed and photographed by cinematographer and veteran storm chaser Martin Lisius, "Prairie Wind" represents the world's first film produced on 16K video. His goal was to photograph the storms of America's Great Plains on the largest canvas possible. "These amazing storms offer us a glimpse of what our world once was, and inspires us to protect and preserve what remains," Lisius said. "The sky over the prairie is huge. I wanted to create a medium large enough to capture and properly present it on." Lisius shot the production utilizing two side by side 50MP Canon DSLRS. Shooting required the use of a custom-made mount to keep the two cameras perfectly aligned, 8,000 miles of travel through six states, and dozens of carefully prepared weather forecasts. During post-production, 12,000 images were stitched together to create one 15,985 x 5792 pixel image using a Mac Pro workstation. Each shot required a minimum of 5 days to prepare with the computer working around the clock. To keep the processors from melting, the Mac was cooled by two powerful external fans.
