From Kurils with Love

Gear, gear, gear

Drowning in the masses of film equipment on board

#fromkurilswithlove essentially is a film production trapped on a boat. That means that there are enormous amounts of gear on board and they are spilling everywhere. There is a gear room in cabin number one - but quickly the gear started spilling over into any free area on the boat (which is totally not appreciated by the crew).

The actual gear room

Below is the impressive list of items we had on our carnet. The losses were low so far. We lost to DJI Mavic drones and had probably nearly 20 near misses as the guys are pushing their tech to the absolute limit. That is a surprisingly good result, taking into account that we are hauling the gear in and out of zodiacs, shooting in boats, on cliffs, carrying the stuff over slippery rocks all the time. Well - we brought 251 items an still have 249. Not bad.

The worst loss by far was for sure Vladimir's HD time lapse camera which was buried below ash after the volcanic explosion at Raikoke. A total tragedy.

Sebastian has other issues meanwhile: all his chargers, GoPros and a drone were in a piece of luggage that didn't arrive in Kamchatka in time for the start of the expedition. Luckily there are enormous amounts of equipment on board, so he is now borrowing cameras on a constant basis. Solidarity helps.
