It's very windy and the temperature is usually about 18F in Barrow, but I'm staying warm in my super fancy movie parka! It's a rental--I wish it were mine!

It was so kind of these Canada Geese to escort me to my car after work yesterday!

My new hat for Barrow!

It's blowing and temps are going to be about 10F in Barrow, where I'm going this Thursday. I've been eyeing this hat for dogsledding for years and finally got one for this shoot. It was only 40 bucks, not bad! And it'll be perfect for dogsledding, too! Not a great pic, but you get the idea!

Everyone Loves Whales!

Today I go back to work on "Everyone Loves Whales," which is a feature film starring Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski that's shooting in Anchorage and Barrow. I am supervising the second unit shoot in Barrow, which will take place at the end of the month. So my blog postings will probably be scare until it's over!

I was checking my sitemeter and noticing some interesting locations that some readers are from. They include Germany, Spain, France, Brazil and even Finland!

Would you mind if you are from a unique place commenting here on how you came across the blog? I'm just curious! Thanks!

Winter's coming!

I took these yesterday while on a trip to Wasilla. I couldn't believe the ice! I guess winter is coming, after all.

Buddy the Hero Dog reunion!

A few months ago I produced pieces for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and The Today Show about the amazing expoloits of Buddy, the German Shepherd who led Trooper Terrence Shanigan to a fire when Terrence was lost on miles of unincorporated road outside of Willow and had a broken GPS. The fire started in a work shed right next to the house, and the house most likely would have burnt down if Buddy hadn't gotten help there so quickly.
This week I produced a piece on the incident for Dateline NBC, which was of course a lot of fun for me! We spent time with Trooper Shanigan and Ben Heinrich, who is Buddy's owner and the person who acidentally started the fire. He was injured with burns to his hand and face, and told Buddy, "We need to get help," which Buddy did! Buddy led Trooper Shanigan to the fire, then went back to the main road and led a fire truck in. And Buddy is a very shy dog. When his job was over, he hid in the forest until Ben got home from the hospital. His work was done.

The backyard of my petsit in Wasilla has an amazing view of Pioneer Peak, especially this time of year!
