Spent a week DOP’ing for award winning documentary film director Nettie Wild. The focus was on the legendary salmon run that occurs annually in Adams River and we managed to come away with some incredible images. Working with Nettie was a truly awesome experience in that she allowed us to really break away from traditional ‘literal’ styles of wildlife shooting. We strove for a visual aesthetic that felt experimental, but at the same time told a story in every image. Special thanks to Steve Breckon (our camera assist) for his talent and wisdom on location.
The short was released theatrically at the 2012 Vancouver International Film Festival, and later projected for multiscreen viewing outside of the Van City Theater
