NWT Pipe Band Documentary

NWT Pipe Band Documentary
2013

This documentary was shot as the summer feature for the WAMP 4 Seasons project 2012-2013. This was my first time making a short documentary film, I wanted to go through the process of making a film from start to finish and to create something that I could give back to the NWT Pipe Band in thanks for all the instruction I received in learning to play the bagpipes.

The NWT Pipe Band is a Grade Four recreational pipe and drum band with many unique qualities, it has the distinction of being Canada’s most northerly pipe band at 62° 27, there is a high ratio of female to male band members and the band performs mainly during the ‘off season’ months.
