Fringe Filmworks has just completed a doc for German broadcaster ZDF/arte. It is episode four of a five part series called THE EXPLORERS CLUB, produced in co-production with Germany’s FlorianFilm GMBH. The Fringe Filmworks episode features Canadian mountaineer Meagan McGrath as she attempts to summit Cho Oyu, the 6th tallest mountain in the world in her quest to climb all the world’s 8000m peaks. (She’s already climbed the seven summits and solo skied across Antarctica!)
The series will air over five nights in prime time later this spring. It is produced by DOC-BC member Angela Heck, directed and edited by Ivan Hughes. DOP is Chris Alstrin.
And, Fringe Filmworks has moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
As of December 2010, we’ve wrapped up our Squamish, BC office and headed east. I know, I know, we’re crazy! – Angela Heck
