Promotional Video: Yama Sakura Exercise in Japan

Producer/Director/Writer/Editor & CG: Walter Talens
Location: Hokkaido, Japan
Equipment: Canon 7D/60D DSLR, Nikon D300, and Sennheiser Wireless Microphones

I traveled to Hokkaido, Japan to help provide video production & editing support to the Public Affairs Office of US Army Pacific Command covering Yama Sakura 65. A training exercise between between US Army and Japanese Defense Forces. As the exercise wrapped, I was tasked to produce a video to present to the host nation General(s) and dignitaries.

Taking photos and video shot in the course of 8-days by five soldiers with a deadline of 36-hours… this was the result.
