I wanted to honour the beauty & beautiful peoples of Pond Inlet in this piece. It was not easy to shoot video in -30C / -22F weather all alone... I had my 7d freeze up on me once because I left it in the shade. I had only one day to capture the town of Pond Inlet.
I could not of done this video without the help of the Z-Finder from Zacuto it performed flawlessly in extreme conditions.
What a great honour for me to have Paul Hamilton
write another perfect musical piece to match the beauty & positive vibes from this little community in the middle of nowhere. It was _very_ cold but the people were so warm hearted. Your intuitive 6th sense never seizes to amaze me Paul. Merci mon ami !!
It's scored for full orchestra: strings, brass, woodwinds & timpani, 2 accordions, 2 guitars, glockenspiel, celesta, handbells. The Inuit throat singing & chorus he multi tracked.
