Things have been really busy around here recently—with the launch of our new features ‘Vegan Adventurist’ and ‘Inspirational Quotes’, regular readers would have noticed that we haven’t been posting as much as usual. That being said, I can’t believe I’ve left this gem sitting in my inbox for 3 months! No matter—it’s that good, I’ll post it now.
Rocky Mountain National Park in 8K is the latest film from the Pattiz brothers, founders of the ‘More Than Just Parks (MTJP)’ project. If you haven’t seen any of the previous videos from the series (Hawai’i Volcanoes, Voyageurs, Grand Teton, BADLANDS, Zion, Acadia, Redwood, Joshua Tree, Smoky Mountains and Olympic), 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 latest film is the result of two years filming in the rugged mountains of Colorado and captures the Rocky Mountain National Park’s jaw-dropping beauty across all 4 seasons!
Situated in the heart of Colorado’s Front Range, Rocky Mountain National Park spans more than 400 square miles. Scouting and filming the best spots across such a large areas takes a lot of organisation, but the More Than Just Parks team were able to draw upon their experience from filming previous locations.
“Our journey started on the northwest section of the park through Estes Park,” the MTJP team wrote on their website. “From there we hiked, camped, and backpacked all around the park through Bear Lake, Moraine Park, Wild Basin, Horshoe Park, Medicine Bow, and eventually we made it out through the southeastern section of the park through Grand Lake.”
