Hello everyone...

Welcome to our On the Ice blog!

We are days away from heading out on our big casting trip and we're hoping we'll have the energy to share some stories and photos along the way. We leave New York Tuesday night and make it to Igloolik in Nunavut, northern Canada by Thursday morning. Neither of us have ever been to Igloolik, but we are really looking forward to it. Igloolik is the home of Isuma Productions, the company responsible for the stunning Inuktitut film Atanarjuat (The Fast Runner). Zacharias Kunuk, Norm Cohn, and Carol Kunuk, all from Isuma, have been helping us set up our auditions and so we're anxious to get up there and meet the many artists of Igloolik.

Here's a photo of Igloolik that we didn't take:

Stay tuned...Andrew & Cara


  1. Exciting adventures ahead! I look forward to the road stories. All the best ~Allan

  2. you should come to pond inlet to hold auditions too. its only about 2 hours away from igloolik.

  3. I've got experience as a grip, although in warm climates only. Keep me in mind when the time comes. Good luck with casting.

  4. Thanks for your post, BatMan. (hehe)

    We definitely wish we could get up to Pond Inlet as well but our budget and schedule are forcing us to limit the number of places we can make it to. I know it's not the same as auditioning in person, but we'd love to have you audition by videotape.

    If you'd like to tape an audition send me an email at and I'll let you know the details.

    Hope to hear from you and anyone else interested in auditioning from Pond Inlet!
