Along the Northern Coast of California the Pacific ocean creates a rich environment that silhouettes a World Heritage sea and landscape. The coastal marine fog that forms along the coast allows a unique habitat for flora and fauna to flourish. The wild coast from Big Sur north to the California/Oregon border is a topography of Redwoods to the Sea.

Home to the tallest trees in the world, transitions to a marine sanctuary where whales, Otters, Seals and Sea lions not only survive but flourish! Just onshore, Bobcats demonstrate a never before filmed behavior of flying through the air to catch gulls. Mountain Lions, Black Bears, endangered Spotted Owls, and the rare California Condors nesting inside a Redwood Tree.

Since 2008 we have been filming this region in 4K footage with a host of helicopters, jibs and sliders in a feature film format. Now we film with 5 and 6K Epic, using a wide variety of RRS gear including a basic body set up of many RRS parts!

Kennan’s often-unique support demands have led to many interesting setups, and even given way to new packages like our Kennan Ward Super-Tele Package, which is perfect for multi-point support of long lenses and video or still cameras!
