Wawanesa

This is probably one of the most fun and challenging projects I've worked on. It was shot in March and we didn’t want snow - which is not easy in Montreal (we had a crew get rid of the snow and we were lucky too with the weather), dogs, stunts...and as usual bigger ambitions than budget.

 

Cédric came up with a great concept (it is a Drive-to-web) and Art Director David Pelletier really did an amazing job. Especially the little veterinarian house that was built between two high-rises was a fun little set to get built.

It is worth noting that about 95 percent of the shots with the washingmachine are real - we actually dragged a washing machine behind the car so all the sparks are real too. During rehearsals I was in a car just behind and the machine fell off and if it hadn't been for the precision driver I was with it would have hit our car.
