    VERSION FRANÇAIS. Also available: ESPAÑOL,KOREAN,PORTUGUÊS,CHINESE: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/peoplefeather-international ENGLISH: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/peopleofafeather Mettant en scène de magnifiques images capturées en sept hivers passés dans l'arctique canadien, Au gré de la plume Arctique vous transporte à travers le temps dans le monde des Inuits des Îles Belcher, dans la Baie d'Hudson. Une relation unique avec les canards eiders traverse leur passé, présent et futur. Le duvet d'eider, la plus chaude plume au monde, permet aux Inuits et aux canards de survivre le dur hiver arctique. Des mises en scènes recréant la vie traditionnelle sont juxtaposées avec des scènes de la vie moderne à Sanikiluaq, alors que les Inuits et les eiders font face aux défis posés par une banquise et des courants marins en changement, perturbés par les gigantesques barrages hydroélectriques qui alimentent en électricité New York et d'autres villes majeures de l'est de l'Amérique du Nord. En montrant comment une technologie aussi simple qu'une plume permet la survie, une communauté de subsistance mets au défis le monde de trouver de nouvelles solutions énergétiques qui fonctionneraient avec les saisons de notre cycle hydrologique.

      Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes you through time into the world of the Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Canada's Hudson Bay. Connecting past, present and future is a unique relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters. Traditional life is juxtaposed with modern challenges as both Inuit and eiders confront changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering New York and eastern North America. Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the technology of a simple feather, the film is a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature.

        This was my first attempt at shooting and editing a video, more than twenty years ago. It went through four analog recording generations, before I digitized it from an S-VHS tape. This tape sat in my attic for all that time and it's surprising that it still plays at all. I shot it on ED-Beta, S-VHS and Hi-8 camcorders and used manual VCR crash-editing to put it on an ED-Beta master tape. It looked a lot better when played from the master tape, but my ED-Beta VCR is no longer working. It also looks better on a TV set, than on most computer monitors. I use an Argosy HV335T HDD Media Player to watch videos like this on my HDTV. If my uploaded video files on Vimeo were downloaded by anyone, with their higher bit-rates and quality than the compressed versions shown here, they'd be suitable for loading onto such a media player. My JVC DVS3U DV/S-VHS dual-deck VCR did a good job of straightening up this video after all those analog generations, before re-recording it on a DV tape. It has an excellent time-base corrector (TBC), that reduces the accumulated analog recording errors. There were no built-in TBCs twenty years ago in video equipment in my price range. Even the most expensive professional TBCs weren't nearly as good as what we have now in low-cost VCRs and cameras. It's easy to see how little I knew about shooting and editing back then, but I'm showing it now, because of the content. Much of the footage was taken at sunset or long afterwards, to show swans and geese coming in to roost. At the time, I had little thought that it would be seen by anyone other than a few relatives or friends. If you really like birds, sunsets and flowers, you might want to watch it. I've given out a couple dozen copies of this on VHS tape over the years. Many people have commented that I should have added more narration and explained things better. My solution since then, is to not add any narration at all to my wildlife productions and no one has complained about that. I used a shoulder-mount I'd made and sometimes a tripod. For audio, I used two Sony Z-200 shotgun mikes. The music was taken from LP records that were made in the Fifties and Sixties.

          Rough Cut: World Within My Wall has been sitting on the shelf for six months; enough people have asked for me to publish this film from hearing about my connection with the farm and beauty in a way I've never quite been as honest about in film—capturing the beauty I find with the haunted self, behind the walls, and within, imprisoned—metaphor after metaphor—mirrors, and the way I've directed a visual "being inside of my world, with me—with self" here on Fat Man Farms and here at home. I've shot, directed, and edited this film for personal use. It is the most meaningful, film I've ever made and actually makes me cry when I do watch it alone, within the walls I've built, and where a hurting, but beautiful world of isolation resides, within myself, and that which surrounds me—entirely so.
