Cinematographers Bruce Dorn and Alan Davis spent some quality time shadowing US Forest Service Hotshots this past summer “fighting fire with fire.” Readily upon their return we got busy putting together this video montage to tell their story.

This project was shot in 4k, so the challenge was not only choosing the best clips among hours of great footage, but figuring out the complex post-production workflow necessary to handle the images.

The resulting video montage gives us a glimpse on what goes on during a prescribed burn, with impressive details provided by the stunning 4k imagery captured by the cinematographers.
