Shaping with Tia Blanco

September 30, 2014

We invited our friend Tia Blanco down to Shaper Studios in San Diego for a special shaping project. The entire process was beautifully captured by videographer Justin Jung and released just released today on EpicTV for Tia's own series titled, Paddling Out with Tia Blanco. Justin spent four days shooting Tia - a day and a half in the shaping bay and three separate sessions. Justin worked with a Sony NEX FS700, an SPL water housing, and two lenses, a Canon 24-70 and Canon 17-40. Lastly, we'd love to thank our friends Ed Ghost Tucker for contributing their original track, "Sofia", for the surfing section of the film. You can learn more about EGT here.   Continue Reading →
