“A ‘Thank you’ goes a long way.”

MIDDLEBURY — A lot of people think filmmaking involves shoots in exotic locations with a pampered cast and crew.
Middlebury’s Sas Carey and Fred Thodal will quickly set them straight.
The two friends spent three weeks in a frigid province of northern Mongolia last summer shooting a documentary on nomadic reindeer herders taking their animals for their annual migration to even colder climes. The filmmakers roughed it, riding assorted quadrupeds through the frigid landscape, overnighting in tents while powering their equipment with a solar panel.
