This was a fun video to shoot. U.K. theme park Alton Towers decided to research an authentic mining town for their Altonville Mine Tours attraction they’re opening this week. We spent one day up in Bodie capturing video, time-lapse footage, stills, interviews and sounds, and this was the result.

I’d like to thank the California Film Commission for the quick turnaround on our film permit, Bodie State Historic Park / +California State Parks for supporting the research and production, and +Lori Hibbett for producing sunrise and night time-lapse footage of Bodie’s iconic car on the shoot. The main cameras used for the production were the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D by . Lori uses the Nikon D800E and D750 by .
