9.18.14: From Midnight to Northern Lights

Sound We See activity is happening all day long all over town. At midnight, four of us are racing through the arctic wind on a borrowed ATV to do Mary Jane’s zero hour shoot at the Welcome To Old Crow sign. At 7 am, it’s time to film the sunrise. At 10, Paolo’s boating down the Porcupine river with Joel, Jonathan and Little Sparrow to cut some timber for winter. From 1 to 3 pm, it’s all about the editing. At 4, Mary Jane learns how to hand process film the Caffenol way. At 6, Madison films all her favorite buildings in town. At 7, Jocelyn captures Old Crow’s natural beauty. At 8, we get kicked out of the weekly Texas Hold ‘Em game. At 11, we’re back at Mary Jane’s busting out some pretty awesome stop motion animation. At midnight we step outside and just happen to catch an absolutely magnificent display of Northern Lights, which, if you’ve never experienced the phenomenon are basically green undulating curtains of luminescence that are constantly morphing into new and mind-blowing extraterrestrial shapes, reaching down from the cold night sky to transport you into the next dimension. Really.
