Ways To Connect

Over the course of the production we haven't just been interviewing scientists. Business owners, train conductors, and what we might call just ordinary citizens, have all been included in the film. One of the most unique perspectives we've gotten has come from those who farm the Last Frontier. Alaskan farmers have a unique perspective on just about everything, but one insight we were most interested in was how weather is affecting farming in the state. Not all of which is negative, later winters and earlier summers mean longer growing seasons.

Elaine is our DJI Inspire 1 UAV. She's been flying all over Alaska getting beautiful shots. 

Our Production Assistant, Weston Davis, uttered these words as we pulled into to Palmer, AK. The truth is none of us have seen mountains like this before. Growing up in New Mexico I’ve been around the mountains my whole life, but when you make your way to Colorado into the Rockies you really see how majestic mountains can really be. However, even Colorado pales in comparison to the breathtaking peaks of Alaska. Pioneer Peak in Palmer AK is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life.

We've literally been between earth and sky all day. Our flight out of Lubbock was late which was ok because we had an hour and a half layover. Unfortunately they couldn't find us a gate, then they couldn't find the right type of loader to move the luggage. We ended up sprinting through DFW Home Alone style before boarding our flight to Phoenix. The gear, more than likely, didn't make it. Hopefully it reaches Anchorage soon, we had quite the layover in AZ so maybe we'll be reunited. Luckily we took the cameras and lenses carry on.
