First Days Filming An Adventure In Grizzly Country.
(Posted on Oct 21, 2009 at 10:44PM )
This week the start of filming has so far been an exciting week. We are interviewing various characters and their personal stories about interactions with Grizzly Bears.
Cannes, Paris and the UK are a long way from the long plane ride into Vancouver. Our journey then took us up to the Orford Valley, the home of the Homalco First Nation's Grizzly Tour operation. The grizzly experts showed us firsthand the grizzlies feeding on returning salmon while sharing stories of the many creatures in their area.
We we were fortunate to interview a former grizzly hunter now turned eco guide. His First Nation insight into the secret lives of Grizzlies was invaluable not to mention fascinating.
Over the Powell River, we boarded a powerful cigarette boat and sped up Powell Lake to "Hole In The Wall" for a truly unique interview spot sharing stories of Grizzly from one of the planet's Grizzly and Polar Bear Experts.
The next couple of days are going to be exciting and adventurous with on the ground Grizzly expeditions and flying into BC's last homestead region to experience these wild creatures and chat with those who have had their share of Grizzly close encounters.
