The Canada C3 (Coast to Coast to Coast) expedition set sail from Toronto on May 31st aboard the icebreaker Polar Prince for a 150 day journey to visit and document the communities and natural wonder that are situated along Canada’s three magnificent coastlines.
During this epic journey, the expedition’s media team captured stunning visuals utilizing traditional video equipment, high flying drone technology, still photography and even broadcast live video from on-board the ship.
The expedition’s media team leaders, Peter Wall and Garry Tutte will take to the ProFusion Expo main stage on both days to share their behind-the-scenes look into the gear they used and to discuss the challenges they faced when creating and posting their content from sea.
