Blizzard Stand-by

Blizzard Stand-by

Notes from the Cast and Crew

Wednesday, April 13, 2005

 

Today, the cast and crew are on "blizzard stand-by". According to the weather forecast, a blizzard is supposed to blow into town at any minute. Blizzard stand-by normally means waiting for it to end, but here on the set of The Journals of Knud Rasmussen, we're actually waiting for the weather to get worse!

Several scenes in the film must be shot in blizzard conditions. Since here in Igloolik you can't order up your rain or snow for a specific day with the special effects department, you have to go with what Mother Nature gives you. That means the cast and crew have scrapped the scenes they were planning to shoot today so that they can get ready for the ones that need to be shot in howling wind and blowing snow.

At this point in time, a full blown blizzard has not yet materialized. The snow is blowing like mad, but the sky is still blue and the sun is out...

      So the SILA crew is back after three days of no Internet! Maybe it was a shift in the magnetic pole or a sunspot, but our local connection has been down for the last 72 hours.
