Well, my dears, hosers, hipsters and all others in this great country, you can argue about the idea that “we are indeed winter.” But you better know that this place we inhabit is big, bold, beautiful. And if you’re in the late-winter doldrums, you are in for a treat.
What kind of treat? Allow me to quote CBC’s boast on the matter: “A truly massive endeavour, the Wild Canada team shot close to 500 hours of footage with almost 20 different cameras to capture the images that comprise the four-part series. Most images were composed in 4K resolution on the same RED Epic cameras used to shoot The Hobbit. Some sequences were shot at 10,000 frames per second to capture exquisite detail in slow motion.” So there.
