My family and I took a trip to New Zealand over the holidays of 2016-2017. The country was beautiful, the people were stellar, and we returned home inspired and wanting little more than to return to see more of this spectacular country. This is my small homage to the country and remembrance of our trip. It was also my first time using Premiere Pro, so I sure learned a lot of things about NLE environments. Please excuse any terribly egregious problems, though do feel free to provide your constructive criticism so that I can improve.
Many thanks to Mike Olbinski (http://mikeolbinski.com) and Chris Ratzlaff (http://chrisratzlaff.com) for helping me immensely with learning to timelapse and for always answering my questions about equipment, workflow, and more. You two are saints.
Thanks also to Braydon Morisseau and Vanessa Neufeld (http://www.vphotographic.com) for being the people who proofed this little movie early and telling me what exactly was terrible with it. I definitely needed your help, you two.
Finally, thanks to Jordan Critz for allowing me to use his beautiful song, "Reverie", which can be licensed through www.musicbed.com. He has some incredibly beautiful music, so check him out for all your project needs.
