Day 5 – Hong Kong

Today was a very adventurous day.

My cousin Jeff essentially became our tour guide for most of this trip and I can’t thank him enough for his patience! He took us to the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. We took the scenic route where we climbed up some steep hills to get there but it was still a lot of fun when you’re adventuring with cousins you haven’t seen in a few years.

Afterwards, we went and explored “old Hong Kong” alleyways – LOTS of downhill stairs – much to my cousin Peter’s “enjoyment”. I’m just thankful my knee didn’t give out during that whole time! Continue reading

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – YVR AIRPORT

We filmed at a small airport next to the main YVR airport.  It wasn’t too crowded and there weren’t many signs or billboards anywhere! Making it the perfect airport location to film.

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – HARRISON HOT SPRINGS

Today was one of those days where the night felt like it was never going to end… and when it did you had to work your day job right afterwards. It was a full-on 32 hour day for me.

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – THE CHIEF

It was just a small crew this time.

I struggled climbing up all those stairs because of my bad left knee. I also struggled with trying to do 360 shots with Pooka. Which made me frustrated throughout the day among other things.

Overall, it wasn’t a great day for me, but what I could get with the drone (eventually) made me realize how much more practice I need with doing slow panning 360 shots.

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – TRACK & HORSESHOE BAY

Today we filmed on a track, a forest trail, and then took a ferry back and forth at Horseshoe Bay.

This was probably one of the funner days (in the rain).

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – VANCOUVER TRIATHALON

Today we filmed during the Vancouver Triathlon. It was a very early start. 3 A.M. to be exact. But the weather turned out pretty spectacular in the end. No sooner after we wrapped that afternoon, myself, Emma, Max, and Cam went down to the beach for an hour or so.

Worth it.

Because soon after that day it rained for a good 3 weeks straight (?) or more (?).

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – THE LOFT

We made movie magic and blacked out the windows to make it seem like it was night time. See how we managed that in the BTS video below:

This is probably one of my favourite BTS videos that I’ve edited.
