Last winter was without a doubt one of the most demanding, yet one of the most rewarding. I spent over 3 months on the road filming, travelling from Japan to northern BC, Chamonix to Sweden and the highlight, an expedition to Svalbard in the Arctic in pursuit of a solar eclipse. The SFTV format will see some changes this year that are really exciting as we do few stories, but bigger stories. Complementing the larger stories is an immersive multimedia experience to take viewers behind the scenes. It is exciting to bring together film, photos and words along with some interactive elements to enrich the experience.
An exciting addition to the arsenal this year was acquiring a drone. It added another level of production, and at times stress, but the final product is pretty impressive. Hopefully you feel the same way.
