As you all know, our goal from day one with this project has been to create a one of kind Blu-ray disc featuring the sites and sounds of Glacier National Park. Tempest was one of the very first companies in Montana to start shooting in high definition many years ago. To top that off all of our recent Glacier footage has been filmed in 4K using our Red One #672 (pretty much the most amazing camera on the face of the planet with over 5 times the resolution of HD video… no we’re not biased or anything).
Now that we’re finally ready to move forward with the authoring and production however, we’re realizing that there are still a lot of people out there that don’t have access to a high-def television or Blu-ray player. With that in mind we’ve decided to complicate the project just a little bit more and produce both a standard DVD and a Blu-ray disc (a combo pack). This will undoubtedly slow down the process a bit since we will need to author two different projects but we think it will be worth the effort to give a lot more people the chance to experience the Glacier that we know and love (and what the heck we’re behind schedule by 12 months already so what’s another few months ).
We still haven’t decided if we’re going to tackle the authoring in-house or find a partner to handle that work but we’ll definitely keep you informed as we move forward!
