Iditarod 2009, A Balmy - 40F!
For the 2nd year in a row, David D'Angelo was back in Alaska to shoot
the Iditarod from start to finish using a snow machine as a mobile
shooting platform. This year's race was as dramatic as ever with
blowing winds plummeting temperatures to -40 F. According to Dave
however, "Once you get down below -10, it all feels the same." The
footage was used for the web-based Iditarod Insider, the official documentary of the '09 race, as well as for three, one-hour shows produced by Blink Productions for Versus.
