    Couple of winter projects I directed and shot on UM4.6K, nice to see it performing flawlessly in conditions between freezing rain in 0C to -24C (-11F) where you don't really want to touch the camera body anymore.

    So many stunning shots. Well done! I think the only shot I didn't mind was the CTA shot at the end of the fashion video. After seeing a kickass looking lady with a kickass looking horse, the trees at the end felt meh, IMO.

    I really enjoyed the song in the music video as well. The video captured the music really well to me. Those slow-mo's of the feet kicking up snow were really nice.

    Jukkata, gorgeous. Don't normally think of winter scenes as luscious but there you have it. Luscious.

    Excellent display of highlight handling. I like the effect in the jar.
    Did you use dust overlays and lens flares in in post?

    Very nice!
    Recently i tried to do same footage in Poland in a primary forest, not with a horse but with bison.
    Unfortunately the snow had melted, bisons were too wild and it was raining (... and I had only one BMMCC).
    Next time i'll get a UM4,6 pro ;-)
    Good job!

    Thanks for the comments! Taikonaut, yes some snow overlays was used and flares with vfx shots. Here's a vfx-breakdown from the music video:

    bmpcc_bel better luck next time! You're most welcome to Finland to shoot all your wintery productions, as long as reindeer stunt doubles for bisons is ok.

    Wonderful!

    May I ask, how many days did you shoot for the first video and did you freeze a lot?
    Your color grading, images and editing are stunning!

    Thanks! Yes there was quite a lot of freezing, but we had the conditions I hoped for.

    We shot over 12 days in 18 locations during february to have a good variation of weather to fit the mood. The song is a new version of a regional anthem from 1852, so it was more a labor of love than about money for our local crew. We had the actors for one day each only, so stunt doubles who were willing to freeze their butts made it possible. Some days were shorter pickup shots here and there and some only aerials that I shot with P4Pro.

    The shots in the beginning with the man in the reeds we started in -24C which was the coldest day. I had planned for gimbal shots but Ronin died in the cold, one of those moments when all plans go out of the window, so it was cat on the shoulder. We got Ronin back later in the day in about -18C. Camera worked fine in all conditions, screen was frozen at times but always responsive. I used hand warmers sticked to batteries and elastic raincover over the top part of the camera and battery which I imagined to create a space of warmer air.

    It was a stress test for the equipment too, to know that they can handle the conditions here. I started using BM cameras a year ago with UM4K, later 4.6K and excited to get a BMMCC today. And quite happy that I sold everything else
