The second day of the ecological festival “To Save and Preserve” has started – and it is no less interesting and informative than the first one.
Despite the fact that it is still early morning, the participants of the festival are already awake and ready for the planned events. They had a rare opportunity to talk with people who were shooting the documentary “The Great Northern Way”. The film is unique. The project participants followed the legendary path of Semyon Dezhnev. Dizzying shots convey the scale and realities in which brave travelers find themselves.
Cape Dezhnev named in honor of the Russian explorer Semyon Dezhnev, the great Russian Explorer of Northern and Eastern Siberia. In the middle of the XVII century Dezhnev made the discovery of world importance: he got to the strait separating Asia and America. A few years ago, the photographer and traveler Leonid Kruglov set off on a journey following the route of a famous sailor. And today in Khanty-Mansiysk at the international ecological TV festival, this film is represented by the members of his team.
Marina Goretskaya, head of PR support for the film: “The author positions this film not just as a documentary, but as a travel film. And it attracts the viewers. Together with Semyon Dezhnev they make a beautiful journey, discovering the territory of the Arctic. ”
The main cameraman Vladimir Filippov is also a pilot of small aircraft. For the filming, he designed a quadrocopter, thanks to which viewers from a bird's-eye view saw snowy plains and rocky gorges on the screen. Travelers traveled ten thousand kilometers on dogs, deer and boats, survived severe frosts.
Vladimir Filippov, the main cameraman of the film: “When we were filming the Manpupunyor plateau which is not so far from Khanty-Mansiysk, these were the most difficult conditions and locations, because both the cold and the wind are at the same time. I would say this place is energetically strong for me. ”
The expedition started in the White Sea, and ended on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. The author of the film Leonid Kruglov is still somewhere among the oceans.
Leonid Kruglov, the author of the film, cameraman, traveler: “Now I am on the Transarctic expedition. We are moving on the legendary icebreaker "Somov" in the direction of Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land in order to capture the first shots for my new project, which will be called Novaya Zemlya.
Time-keeping is just over an hour. But behind this lies a three-year filming in eight arctic regions of Russia. The film, by the way, claims victory in the TV contest of the festival “To Save and Preserve”.
