and we had all just touched down in Sapporo Japan
to meet up with Bull and Yohei, our longtime Armada family. 5 years had gone by but it didn't even seem like 5 days since we last saw them. This was the first shoot of the first film effort from Jossi and Torin.
nothing was going right
The lowest snow year in 60 years according to the Hokkaido news, with no snow in the forecast. But we held strong, went to the most northern tip of the island, and finally the snow gods delivered. We only had a couple days of excellent conditions, but with the skills and work ethic of guys like Torin and Jossi, that was all we would need. These guys worked like dogs day in day out up until the pandemic hit in the Spring, and the outcome is impressive. Excited to see what Torin, Jossi, and the Deviate crew do next.
