Grand Teton 8K is the eighth film from the More Than Just Parks (MTJP) project. If you haven’t seen any of the previous films in the series, then here’s the lowdown. MTJP is a project started by brothers Will Pattiz and Jim Pattiz, founders of Sea Raven Media. The goal is simple but meaningful—to encourage more people to get out and experience what’s theirs. In order to achieve this goal, the MTJP team are on a monumental filming adventure, travelling across the entire US to capture 59 national parks in breathtaking fashion.
This film is the culmination of nearly a month spent filming in the spectacular Jackson Hole Valley and the foothills of the Teton Range. Encompassing nearly 500 square miles, Grand Teton National Park boasts an awe-inspiring array of pristine wilderness, glacial lakes, winding rivers, diverse wildlife, and the magnificent Teton Range. Speaking about Grand Teton 8K, Will and Jim Pattiz say:
Journey with us as we explore a land dominated by towering peaks, apex predators, and majestic beauty. This is Grand Teton.
The team’s journey started on the southern (Moose) end of the park. From there they hiked, camped, backpacked, and drove all around the park eventually making it out on the North side of the park near Yellowstone.
The team employed a few pieces of gear to capture various scenes for the film. Their main arsenal consisted of the Sony a7R II, the Canon 5D Mark III and the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K. For time-lapse scenes, the team utilized the Radian & Michron by Alpine Labs.
