The Icemen’s Ominous Warning
May 21, 2016
This is the first video I completed after last year’s Dark Snow trip.
I combined an interview with Greenland expert Konrad Steffen that I bagged in Illulissat in early June, with some footage I had of tropical Glacier guru Lonnie Thompson from the American Geophysical meeting.
I cut in some B-roll of footage I shot at Russell Glacier, and Uumannaq, two of the remote locations last year’s trip took me to.
The piece starts out slowly, building on the combined big-picture view from the two men, and kind of creeps up on you as they take us to the logical implications of their lifetimes of observation and research. The effect is sobering.
