Heather Mosher directed 2021 WMFF feature “Ocean to Asgard.” A film about four friends who travel to Baffin Island for a forty day human-powered adventure, featuring big-wall first ascents, whitewater paddle descents, and wild Arctic flamingos. We asked her a few questions, see our Q&A conversation below:
What is in your gear bag/kit?
Right now, it’s a mirrorless camera (Panasonic GH5) and an assortment of microphones. I love being super nimble when I shoot documentary work, and the Panasonic GH5 has been a fantastic camera for moving fast and light. I’m also really interested in capturing cinema verite as well as possible, so I have a small selection of wireless lav mics and PDRs that I can use to mic up the subjects and capture great audio with a small team.
What item can you not live without?
SNACKS! I always look forward to the treats I get on long days in the mountains – I often pack a hummus wrap, or a baggie of snacks with cheese, dried sausage, candy, dried mango or other fruit, chocolates, maybe some almonds, etc. There aren’t a lot of snacks I’d say no to.
