The Parafilms crew, and a group of friendly adventurers are sailing of from Gaspé, QC from august 24th to Sept 1st 2015. The expedition named “Le peuple du plancton” aims to drift alongside whales and planktonic organisms to film and photograph them. Equipped with aerial, underwater, macro and microscopic imagery tools, the team accompanied by a group of creatives, educators, videographers and sailors will document and share their experiences onboard. For some it is an amazing opportunity to learn about photography and cinematography techniques, for others it will be navigation skills and ecology of the Gulf of St Lawrence! After partnering up to present a plankton exhibit in the old port of Montreal, Parafilms and Ecomaris join forces again for this expedition initiative that will serve as a test-run for future trips around the Magdalen Islands and through the wonders of the Gulf!
