During our fourth week of the quarter, our studio packed our bags and traveled to the Owens Valley. We brought along our basic survival gear such as food and tents, but more importantly our equipment to capture and document our travel and experiences. Given the job to create an eidetic video from footages of our trip with relatively no constraints, most of us gathered more than enough shots. We also had the opportunity to talk to different groups residing in the Owens Valley and get their perspective of what has happened to the lake. Among these were our gracious host Julie of De La Cour Ranch, elders of the Big Pine Paiute Tribe, and representatives from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
The video above took approximately two hours to film and was captured south of De La Cour Ranch, heading up the mountain on Horseshoe Meadows Road. As possible footage for our eidetic video, the clip shows the sunrise while overlooking Owens Lake.
