This spectacular Canon EOS 5D Mark II video called “Tahiti – Ocean Voyage” popped up today and I wanted you to see it! Normally we’re posting most new really good videos on planet5D Cinema (usually 1 per day) but this one is just very beautiful and I wanted to share quickly (I’ll post it on the cinema site too at some point).
It is especially cool when you have someone composing a soundtrack to go along with your video!

Film made by Devin Graham
I originally went to Tahiti to film a documentary that I am making that you can watch the movie trailer for it in the link right below.
This entire film was filmed on the island of Tahiti and Moorea over a 15 day period. I stayed with several amazing families.
One of the people we stayed with was a man named Heifara. He runs an awesome boat tour where we went out everyday swimming with the shark, stingray, and everything else the ocean has to offer. You can check out his website for his boat tours on the island of Moorea here below.
The other two familes we stayed with were Tautu family and a man by the name of Mauna Bennett.
NEVER in my life have I met such kind people ready to accommodate you in any way possible. I will blog about the experience in the next week, and you'll be able to read about it in the link below.
On a technical side, this was all all shot on the Canon 5D Mark II. Most of the shots were done with the Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L Series lens.
The smooth shots were done with a Glidecam HD-4000. You can check out the exact model on their official website here where you can also buy them. I've been shooting with there glidecams for the last 5 years, and love them. They do take a little bit of a learning curve, but once you get past that, it's all smooth!
Also, here's a link to some of the photography I did as well while I was filming. I did this just on the side, just because I was already at the location, but my main focus was capturing it on video. Second was photographing it.
