‘Artic Tale’ Guide Goes Postal

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – While working long hours in the cold shooting the nature pic Arctic Tale, a cinematographer encountered a local guide who decided to take his own shots – with a shotgun, that is.

Cinematographer Adam Ravetch spent more than 15 years working on the frosty film narrated by Queen Latifah, but he’ll never forget the mammoth moment when an Inuit guide went ballistic on him.

Ravetch says, “He definitely got cabin fever and just started randomly firing off the shotgun into the air.”

But shooting in the Arctic for so long can drive anyone crazy.

Ravetch, “These stakeouts are one of the hardest things to do because it can feel like six months straight of doing absolutely nothing.”

But luckily, another Inuit guide took shots too, only this time it was friendly fire.

Says Ravetch: “Another guide got bored too, but he took the camera into his hands, taking pride in photography like us.”

Arctic Tale comes out August 17th.
