Calamity Calling from Marc Hofer on Vimeo.
Finally, after some month of waiting, GlobalPost put my latest video project online. Calamity Calling is part of an ongoing bigger reporting project by the GlobalPost about the Climate Change situation around the world.
All the video was shot on my trusted 5D Mark III. Although not the perfect camera for wildlife, Lemurs are in general not that difficult to shoot. So it was sufficient. What I really liked was the that the camera and my setup was small enough, to walk longer periods of time, withstood rain and high humidity.
I was working with my fixer who used to work for IMAX productions and BBC before and he told me of long and painful processions of equipment bearer down the valleys of the Ramonafana national park. By listening to his stories I was glad I only had a backpack and a little tripod with me.
