Since its opening day filmmakers Michael Sutton and Julian Tryba have been making multiple trips in excess of 4 hours each visit to capture the amazing handmade ice structures of Ice Castles in Lincoln, New Hampshire. Shooting this project was a challenge as we were dealing with sub zero temperatures on a regular basis. I apologize for the snow and ice chips on the lens (it was very difficult to prevent in the shooting conditions) as well as the flickering (the lights in the ice pulse and are erratic at times.) Blog postings as coming soon on Marmoset Music, Story&Heart and Kessler Crane's website. Thank you to the amazing team at icecastles.com Go visit them its amazing.
Over 150 hours were put into the making of this film (approximately 70% of that was in at least -2 degree temperatures and some days it was reading -23) so give us some love and like our film please :)
