Since 1993, StormStock has been the "go to" footage library for producers and directors who need something special in the weather imagery category. The collection, created by cinematographer Martin Lisius, features hard to find material including the only Super 35mm (to HD) footage in the world of Hurricane Katrina making landfall.
Cinematographer and StormStock founder Martin Lisius has a very unique job. For nearly three decades, he has tracked and photographed some of the most violent (and beautiful) weather in the world. Last week, it was business as usual as he followed major Hurricane Matthew along the Florida coast, bracing against 90 mph winds, and enduring stinging, horizontal rain.
Filmmaker, and veteran storm chaser, Martin Lisius has announced that he will produce, direct and write the sequel to his 1995 award-winning documentary "The Chasers of Tornado Alley" this spring. The full length doc (working title "TCOTA2"), will focus on a group of storm chasers known for their contributions to science and public safety.
Veteran storm chaser Martin Lisius has released a new book titled “The Ultimate Severe Weather Safety Guide.” It is currently available in paperback (76 pages) and on Kindle (83 pages) at Amazon, and on Nook (64 pages) at Barnes & Noble. The iBook version (57 pages), featuring additional photos and dramatic footage captured by Lisius, will be available at the Apple iTunes Store later this week.
StormStock founder and cinematographer Martin Lisius has published a new book titled "The Ultimate Severe Weather Safety Guide," which is currently available as an e-Book on Kindle and Nook, and in paperback. It is scheduled to be released on iBook, which will feature many dramatic and beautiful storm footage clips captured by Lisius.
Looking at footage of street signs becoming projectiles in the midst of a tornado or a hurricane, it's amazing to think that whoever kept the cameras rolling through the extreme weather didn't get swept away or flung over the rainbow. But Martin Lisius, president and cinematographer at StormStock, has managed to capture nature's dark side while keeping his wet feet on the ground.
