“Through cold and ice, a young man must go.”
Just before sunrise on an icy December morning and armed with only a thin layer of neoprene, Jordan wades into the frigid waters, forsaking comfort, coerced by the need to fish. Each breath of air cuts his lungs. Every inch of exposed skin cracks under the freezing winds. And yet, Jordan’s only focus is this cast.
Production struggled through a similar situation. We found ourselves fighting the cold; knee-deep in the Deschutes River, nearly running out of gas and inching our way home through the chaotic highways all the way back to the editing bay. Three months later, the project has come to fruition.
