Death Valley 8K is the 11th film from the Pattiz brothers, founders of 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 addition to the series focuses on the largest national park in the continental United States. Death Valley, in the remote far reaches of the Mojave Desert, get’s its name from encompassing the hottest place on earth. However, this outstanding piece of cinematography reveals a world full of diverse life and colourful landscapes.
The film features clips of Teakettle Junction, Lee Flat, Stovepipe Wells, Panamint Springs, Wildrose, Furnace Creek, Badwater Basin, through to Ibex Dunes (in the southernmost section of Death Valley park).
