Chasing Ice – Dangerously breathtaking

21 January 2013

The makers of this film tackled a unique and daunting task of putting out 25 nikon cameras, in extreme conditions, that would take one photo per hour for as long as it was daylight. The result? Variety calls it “visually breathing” and the film has continued to gardner numerous awards.

Chasing Ice is from the producer of the Academy Award winning film The Cove. It’s obsessive team produced images that will blow your mind and hopefully inspire some reflexive thought.
