About the Project: Being selected for the 2015 challenge was a huge surprise given the vast number of applications and incredible talent all vying for 6 spots on the island. Leaving behind a damp February in Vancouver we wanted approach the project with as much of an open mind as possible as we headed to the Caribbean. A guide book is a great place to start but once those plane wheels touched down, the sights and sounds of this incredible island quickly took hold. This place is sensory heaven!
‘Winging it’ is the name of the game when working in this environment – always ready with a camera to catch anything that moves, while at the same time having enough focus to capture the big scenes with the incredible help of the entire Dominica Challenge team and every single person on the island.
We were extremely fortunate to have met Dr. Lennox Honychurch on the first morning of the challenge. He has written the book on how to write the book, and his knowledge and energy for Dominica were infectious. We knew that with his help and beautiful poetry, we had a solid foundation for our film that would become our road map for the rest of the challenge.
We hope you enjoy Green Triangles as much we enjoyed making it.
About Dan Barham: As one half of Union, I’ve worked as a professional photographer, film maker and journalist, specializing in outdoor adventure and travel. For over ten years, I’ve been lucky enough to see parts of the world I’d never have been able to experience otherwise – work has taken me to places such as Nepal, Peru, the Galapagos Islands, Sweden, Hong Kong, the wilderness of Northern Canada and most of Europe, and yet I’m still hungry for new experiences and new destinations
About Andrew Rogers: Andy Rogers is Union’s Assistant Director and Art Director but is equally at home pushing buttons behind a camera to help tell the right story, to the right audience. With an endless need to create, he satisfies that desire through graphic design, photography and film making and enjoys nothing more than trekking gear into remote locations or chasing the ‘shot’ with fading light.
