BEACON - A Visual Poem by Michael N Sutton / @MNS1974 from Michael N Sutton / @MNS1974 on Vimeo.

Beacon is based on a short poem I wrote after filming the majority of this footage. I went to the ocean to film without a story, a plan or even a solid idea of what I wanted to make. I knew I wanted to get some stock footage and come out of the experience with a story of sorts. Five days of shooting with over 2TB of footage and no plan.

As I started looking at the footage a story came to mind. More of a poem than anything. I asked my compadre Lenny Mordarski to wake up at 2:30am to accompany me on one of my ocean visits. He was going to be my assistant as I lugged around 75lbs of gear each time and made about 25-30 trips to and from my car to the shore at each location. I ended up shooting a few scenes with him.

I shot this on the Photron BC2 HD high-speed camera at 250-2000fps, the Canon 1Dc 4K DSLR, and a GoPro Hero 3+. Lenses used were the 300mm Tamron SP (the main lens used on 50% of the shots), a 50mm Nikon AI and a 16mm Rokinon in Nikon mount. A DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse was used for all the aerial shots. I expected it to crash into the sea at any moment so I transferred footage after each flight incase I didn’t see it again.

Other gear used was the Kessler Crane ( kesslercrane.com ) Carbon Fiber Stealth, Berno tripod, Manfrotto 516 head.

BEACON by Michael N Sutton

All of my life, I knew only of prairie. Milk, wheat and hay. Flatlands with miles of same.

Our great waters shed towards something greater…and further away.
I followed it and it brought me a new beginning.

Offered here is a less corrupted view.
Cold brisk water, cut with a warm salty breeze replaces my pastures.

My escape from things I’d seen, done and heard. Behind me.

So many changes have passed since living among these thieving gulls. I observe myself when they crest the sky.

They coast without care…, soaring well above my comprehension as I now understand why I was wrong.

These boiling, rolling, crashing thunderous waves scream death at me.

A place where quiet, is the loudest break hitting the rocks.

A spot where patience now grows within.

Foggy mornings and ominous figures turn to reveal the day to day. Dark forces kept at bay by a pillar of light.

A cry in the night is now the cry of a gull.

I could simply drift out to sea but I might grow up. Who wants that? Not I.

Each pulse of the light, cries out my very own SOS.

It is this beacon, that keeps me from fading away.

"Apis Mellifera: Honey Bee" a high-speed short from Michael N Sutton / @MNS1974 on Vimeo.

Last week I wanted to film something in high-speed (I shoot something every week to keep it fresh). My Bullfrog film had done well on the internet and I wanted to step up and challenge myself. I have wanted to film bee’s for quite a while and luckily for me there happened to be an apiary in my town. Allen Lindahl owner of hillsidebees.com stepped up and allowed me to film his hives. It was 92 degrees out and the sun was bearing down, but I was told sunny days are when the bee’s are most active. Without a bee outfit, I was ready to shoot. I was able to get pretty close to one of the hives (about one and a half feet) which was perfect for using the Canon 100mm Macro IS. I primarily filmed with the Canon 30-105mm Cinema zoom lens wide open. I also used a 300mm Tamron and a Nikon 50mm. I had my trusty Sound Devices Pix 240i as a field monitor and for recording ProRes via the HD-SDI out of the Photron BC2 HD/2K. It was very hard to track the bee’s as they fly very fast and were getting a little bothered by how close I was to the hives. I was only stung three times which is pretty remarkable due to my proximity and my lens poking almost into the entrance way of the hive. I shot for approx 2.5 hours each day. It was so hot I got a pretty bad sunburn and the camera was hot enough to cook a fat porterhouse. There was a few moments that were intimidating when bee’s started landing on my arms, face, in my ear and on my eye. I just stayed still and they went on their way with the exception of the three stings (1 on the arm, 1 on the neck and 1 under my ear). Bee’s are actually quite docile and would prefer not to sting. They just want to make honey.
