The Innovative Underwater Production of 'Chasing Coral'

July 20, 2017, Creative Planet Network: Orlowski began considering the technology required to operate the time-lapse cameras and turned to underwater camera engineer Trevor Mendelow and his company, View Into the Blue, for a solution. View Into the Blue created an autonomous time-lapse camera system based on Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GH4 camera. The GH4s could shoot 4K still or video footage with a 12-24mm zoom lens. Zack Rago, a camera technician and coral expert at View Into the Blue, says of the time-lapse system, "It would essentially wake itself up on a preprogrammed schedule and take 30-burst shots, and then go back, to sleep. And then wake back up a couple hours later and do the same thing."

To program their time-lapse, the GH4s had to be hacked. “Trevor Mendelow is an engineering genius,” says Orlowski of View Into the Blue’s CEO. “We told him what we needed from a technical perspective, like how to deal with exposures, with focus, having an intervalometer. Trevor custom-programmed all the software to do that.”
