My new film The Blinding Sea just got an honorable mention at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida. Working with a new editor, Guillaume Falardeau, has been a terrific experience. Alex Charrier has done a superb job of sound editing. Marie Frenette has become associate producer. The official completion date of the new 57-minute-long is early April 2016.

We are now working on the feature-length version of the film, which goes more deeply into the psychological world of polar explorers from 1897 to 1928, such as Adrien de Gerlache, Roald Amundsen, Frederick Cook, Robert Falcon Scott, Teddy Evans, Ernest Shackleton and Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, drawing on the rich story-telling of their descendants Bernard de Gerlache, Anne-Christine and Johan Amundsen, Gloria Corbould, Falcon Scott, Julian Evans, Alexandra Shackleton and Paul Terrien, as well as Paul Ikuallaq. What an adventure!
