Reel World: Growing My Brave Teaser Shot on the 5d

I first met Kristen Turick from Artifact Documentaries about two years ago in Austin at Re:Frame. We instantly hit it off. She was completely inspiring to me. She was producing amazing films and was completely humble and, just like her films, totally sincere. Almost a year and a half passed until I got to see her again and during that time so much had changed for both of us. Her and her husband, Jeff Turick, who like her, is extremely talented, had just won The Story Beyond The Still with their short “Allison” and they were refocusing their energy to documentary work. I’m so glad they did…

From their blog:

“When Somatic Therapist, Fred Mitouer, first approached Jeff nearly eighteen months ago about filming the work he does as a Transformational Bodyworker, neither of us ever expected to be taken on a personal journey that would not only touch and affect our lives, but would also allow us to become part of the mental healing process for one special woman’s life.. before she dies of ovarian cancer. A remarkable story of survival, hope and enlightenment and the man who makes it all possible, this clip is a teaser for a documentary to be released later this year. Please note: the content is of a mature nature and may not be suitable for all viewers.”

Technical notes:

Shot on the Canon 5d with the 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, and the Zacuto Z-Finder.

Kristen + Jeff, thank you for the inspiration.
