Voted BEST Video of 2013 The 3 day and night Mike Morrison Photo & Video shoot. Most complex and longest video to make with tricks and effects that will amaze you. Gather your friends for this one and enjoy the ride.

Mike Morrison from Alaska joined me this summer on the bluff for a 3 day photo and video shoot featuring his HO and O scale locomotives and freight cars all tricked out with incredible weathering that you must see to believe. We did 2 day time shoots and one night time session. During the day we shot stills and video of his models in action with interviews with Mike explaining in his own words how he achieved some of his effects. During the day session the prototype did a run by below the bluff with Mike filming for research. The entire bluff run by is then shown totally modeled matching the prototype run by car for car in the consist. Because everything was the same the timing of the run by allowed me to drop in 4 clips of the model during the run by matching the timing exactly through the run by. Pretty cool trick and you may miss it if your not paying attention because the effect works.

 The night time introduction on the video is a magic moment when the sounds of the Mississippi valley surround you as we carry on with business. The night time stills look magical. Joe Steimann adds more magic to the night when he directs 4 of us to do our part to create this fantastic still of a Soo Line F Unit smoking in the night with a little help form 3000 watts of light. Yes, it really took 4 of us to pull it off and you are there moment by moment for the failure's and the success. In fact this video is so captivating throughout it will take you from your world to ours for a visual ride you will want to watch over and over, and you can.
