Behind the Eclipse - Souls of Totality Featurette

IMG_2699.jpg

As filmmakers we're often asked, what was it like filming during a solar eclipse?

First of all the sheer magnitude of the event was staggering- there was a 360 degree sunset, coyotes were howling, birds went to roost, it was like being in another dimension. The production component was very nerve-racking since we only had one chance to get it right. There was quite a bit of technical complexity in photographing the eclipse with a huge change in the light, not to mention capturing Tatiana's incredibly moving (and literally moving) performance.

Souls director, Richard Raymond, shares some of the highlights and challenges of the experience in the featurette below which also features some exclusive never before seen footage!
