Ragnar Relay NW Passage 2011 Video

Here is this year's video submission for our Ragnar Relay team. If you saw last year's video, you'll notice that this is a completely different concept. Last year's video won "best video," and thus we got a free entry for this year's race. We're hoping for the same again this year.

Like last year, I wrote, directed & produced this year's submission. The difference this year is that I thought it would be great to get some of the other team members to do some acting. The concept is a Ken Burns-style documentary, forty years in the future, looking back (completely inaccurately) on the 2011 race. While I've only directed myself in the past, these guys did a great job. Some needed more "coaxing" than others, but to be fair, I did put them on the spot ("here's the clothing, here are your lines...NOW ACT!) I got in there as a German Ragnar historian. No, I couldn't just stay behind the camera.

So, without further adieu, here it is:
