Made to be Seen from Joel Schat on Vimeo.

First off thanks for watching my Nature DEMO REEL – Made to be Seen! To enjoy it in the best possible way turn the volume way up, Yell at everyone to be quiet and Dive into this film! If you have a blazing fast internet speed head on over to Youtube and choose 4K in the settings as the vimeo compression isn't the greatest!

Follow along with my adventures:

Alright! So basically this is my nature demo reel! My passion for the past 2 years has been to show off Creation as best I know how, which lead me to mountain tops, canyons, beaches and all sorts of spectacular places! I have been so blessed to be able to witness some of the things I've seen in the past 2 years. Thankfully I have been able to follow this passion of mine and continue to travel as I am extremely fortunate to work for an amazing company called which allows me to travel and document roadtripping!

Our Films:

The hardest part of this film for me was finding the right song. It had been months of casual searching but finding nothing. Then one day while I was at home (Vancouver) sitting in church my pastor used this song to help prove a point, that we have a soul and that is what seperates us from the rest of nature, the second I heard it I knew it was perfect and I rushed home to start the editing process!
The song is called: Saturn – Sleeping at Last

If you want to see exactly what goes into making one of my videos check out a day in my life while on the road here:
The equipment I used for this film includes a bunch of Canon gear:
5d2, 6d, 16-35, 24-70, 70-200,
Rokinon 14mm (great for stars)
Lee Filters
A Bunch of Manfrotto tripods and my Motion Control!
Dynamic Perception makes some fantastic Sliders and now a pan/tilt head that is sweet but its the stage 1 that really changed things for me. It makes it possible to bring a slider on a long hike or on the airplane as its carbon fiber and super light!
DP Stage 1 Carbon and DP Stage 0 –
Emotimo TB3
Promote Control (Best intervalometer I have by far)
F-stop Tilopa BC
And of course I couldn't have done it without my VW Westfalia!!

All of these clips are available in 4-6K, email me at for inquires.
