To be a gaucho means to be honest and kind to all living creatures. Now in his seventies, Heraldo Riel became a gaucho at the age of nine just like his father before him, and has stayed true to the spirit of his profession while in the midst of a rapidly changing world.
This is a story about being connected to nature and oneself, set in the stunning landscape of Patagonia, Chile, made even more intensely beautiful through the meditation that solitude brings. Captured with a combination of DJI Osmo, Ronin and Inspire 1 Raw by Foster Visuals.
The challenges for a filmmaker venturing out to Chile’s remote Patagonian steppes are numerous. Requiring three days travel by horseback from the nearest city to reach their subject, gaucho Heraldo Riel, both size and weight of their gear was highly restricted, yet the resulting short film could contain no compromises. See how the DJI Osmo, Ronin and Inspire 1Raw enabled Foster Visuals to capture the DJI Story called The Last Colonizer.
