July 4, 2017, American Cinematographer: Orlowski went to Boulder-based View Into the Blue, known for underwater webcams, to get dome-shaped housing that could accommodate a GH4, along with a CleanSweep magnetic wiper that would keep the housing clean of biomass for months at a time.
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.”
