    Who are you and what is your role in the film?

    My name is Tooguyuk, which means “big fluffy dog”. I'm actually from Igloolik, and am Samueli Ammaq's lead dog. In the film, I am going to play the lead dog of the Greenlandic character Bosun (played by Qillaq Petersen from Qaanaaq).

    How have you been preparing for the role?

    How long have you been a chef?

    I've been a chef for about 22 years. I started in my hometown of Sherbrooke, QC and I went to Iqaluit after that for about 10 years. I learned how to cook country food (caribou, seal, etc.) at Expo '86 in Vancouver in the Northwest Territories Pavillion. I learned how to cook country food over there.

    How long have you been with Isuma?

    Since December, 2004. Only a few months.

    How important is the community of Igloolik to the film?

    It's important because all of the staff is from the community. Everything I need goes through the community. Most of the staff and qamutiks (sleds) come from the community.

    How do you like Igloolik so far?

    I've been here many times before. Since 1998, maybe, I've come up here once a year to work and to visit friends. I have some great friends here.

    What does your job entail?

    I wear many hats. First of all I'm a sound man. I'm also doing the lighting for the interior of the sets.

    How did you get involved in this industry?

    My education is in theatre design. I worked for years in animations and expressions, but I thought it was really boring because it always looks the same; like steel and wood and dust. So I contacted the Danish film school and got into there. Ever since then I've worked in film.
