'Snowies' - DVD by Elliott Kennerson
|Short Review by Deane Lewis Updated 2012-08-17 Created 2006-09-26|
Snowies is a short film by science and natural history filmmaker Elliott
Kennerson. It documents a trip by Elliott and his friend and birder Jeremy
Roberts to see the Snowy Owls in north-western Montana during the unusually
large 2006 winter congregation. The film is narrated by Jeremy. Also making an
appearance is famous owl researcher Denver Holt.
I found the style of the film quite informal and friendly, without losing
credibility. You can actually view the entire 12 minute film
here, along with more information. I do recommend buying the DVD though;
not only is it easier to watch, but it has bonus material including a short
"behind the scenes" commentary by Elliot, and an extended and very interesting
and informative interview with Denver Holt. The DVD can be purchased from
this page at Amazon.com.
From the back cover:
"In the winter of 2006, some very special visitors came to Polson, Montana, a sleepy town on the south shore of Flathead Lake. An unusually large congregation of snowy owls stopped over to spend some time on the way back to their arctic home.
In this entertaining and enlightening short film, Montana filmmaker Elliott Kennerson accompanies his friend Jeremy Roberts, a birding guide and fellow filmmaker, on a trip to see these amazing creatures.
With its appealing characters, stunning owl footage, and charming score, SNOWIES is an informative and thoughtful treat!"
