Prancer Returns was Worrall’s second collaboration with Deathlands director Joshua Butler, so “there was a trust already built in. He knew I could give him what he wanted, but if I moved a light here or there it would look better. I was allowed to do that. As a result, there wasn’t one shot that I think I did badly. We had just a lot of good shots. It was in 35mm, and it had a good look to it.
“You need luck as well,” he admitted. “I needed cloudy as opposed to fighting the sun, and I got overcast days for the big set-up. It was shot in February (2001), but we had to truck in quite a bit of snow up at Rattlesnake Point (conservation area).”
Brave crew, shooting outdoors in Ontario in February. More than a few Christmas productions have been shot in the spring, summer or fall.
Winter is for the real thing, and all of the executive and staff of the CSC wish you a very Merry Christmas on Dec. 25 and extend our best wishes for the whole holiday season. Stay safe and warm.
