equipment

 

We will be travelling aboard a 4×4 IVECO acm 80, that has been our companion for many years of travel. It was an ex-military truck, bought from a junkyard and adapted and transformed through the years to our specific needs. It provides us with a clean environment for our equipment and of course a travelling home for us and our children. We have found that with small children, sleeping in the same environment ,with their own bed and little house, is a stabilizing influence and makes the constantly changing surroundings more enjoyable. We are very keen on getting of the main routes and exploring small tracks that often lead to smaller less populated areas that can offer  different realities.

Our filming and photographic equipment is composed of two HD high definition professional video cameras ,and two digital reflex cameras ( canon and pentax) with various lenses.The audio will be in direct or in certain cases recorded apart with a DAT recorder. Apart from two tripods (Vinten, Libec) we also have a steady cam for images in movement. We will be using mostly natural lighting, and filming with discretion, giving priority to spontaneous shots.With a special eye on the  children some shots will be filmed from a low angle  to try and convey some of the impressions and emotions they may experience, trying where possible to imagine  what interests and catches their attention.
