StormStock Continues to Lead the Way with 16K Video
StormStock cinematographer and founder Martin Lisius has returned from the plains with a batch of amazing storms he shot on 16K. Lisius captured the content using two Canon 5DS cameras, side by side, then stitched the individual exposures into a 15985 x 5792 1:2.76 (Panavision 70) 16K image. StormStock was the first to produce and offer 16K video for licensing in 2018.
They continue to lead the stock footage industry in cutting edge technology developed by their parent company Prairie Pictures.
This content is available exclusively from StormStock.
See a portion of this new footage above in a short video Lisius produced titled, “Storms on 16K.”
Spooked Elephant Tramples Through Parade Injuring 17
A terrified elephant taking part in a festival in Sri Lanka has run berserk, throwing its driver off and trampling on him, according to footage published by The Sun.
The animals are often used in religious parades in the island nation and concerns have been raised that they are tortured by their owners, including being beaten with sticks.
Elephants, despite their size and imposing bulk, can be quite timid and easily scared by loud noises and flashing lights and their instinct in these situations is to run away, crashing through things and people in their path. It is common enough to have its own phrase: “running amok”.
Video taken at a Buddhist pageant in Kotte, near Columbo, shows a blue and white costumed elephant run out of control and throw off his mahout or driver, who is then trampled. Bystanders pick up the injured and rush them for medical treatment.
'Alien-like' Creature with Tentacles Caught off Coast of Alaska
A clip of the deep sea creature with long tentacles around its tiny orange body was posted online and has been viewed more than one million times. A fisherwoman caught it near Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.
Footage posted by Sarah Vasser-Alford shows the orange animal making rhythmic movements as it extends its long, curly tentacles.
The fisherman then turns the sea creature around to reveal a creepy-looking body with murky ’blood vessels’ underneath. It is a deep sea creature called a Basket Star and was returned to the water unharmed.
The video has left viewers, who compare it to a horror movie scene, mesmerised.
