Between Earth and Sky: Meet the Crew: Austin Wideman

Austin Wideman is the Director of Photography for Between Earth and Sky. He's currently about to start his last semester at Texas Tech University where he'll graduate from the College of Media and Communication. He's wise beyond his years and as skilled as they come. He is a natural behind the camera and can work under any conditions thrown at him. For this project he had to learn 4K Cinema utilizing 2 Panasonic GH4s as well as learn how to operate a DJI Inspire 1 4K drone. He's a natural and adapted quickly to the arduous shooting conditions of Alaska. 

Wideman is young but a consummate professional who has a poetic eye for composition and light that will only grow better as his career moves forward. Austin films everything, and always has a camera ready in hopes of getting a great shot of a grizzly bear or whatever else the tundra might throw his way. 

Austin's first question when asked to join the production team was, "will there be coffee in the wilderness?" A brilliant visual artist, he's brought a great vision to the project.
