If you’ve been following this space at all… you’ll be familiar with our tenacious crew who braved blowing snow, bracing cold and frigid winds to bring us the amazing shots used in Eye on the Arctic documentaries like Losing Their Words, The New Raw and Seal Ban: The Inuit Impact among others.

On Monday, Eye on the Arctic is off to Nunavut and Nunavik to work on its next series of reports. Besides yours truly, the TV crew has now been finalized. We’re pleased to announce that Jean Cayouette, affectionately known as ‘Snake Eyes’ (click here if you need a refresher) is back as soundman. No matter the conditions, Jean was seemingly indestructible during our last Arctic trip and we’re thrilled to have him back.

As for the person wielding the TV camera, we heartily welcome Alfonse Mondello aboard as Eye on the Arctic lensman. Alfonse has worked in places ranging from Haiti and Iraq to Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan. With over 30 years experience behind the camera, we’re more than excited to see what happens when he turns his lens on the Arctic for the very first time.
