Shot on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Saturday, February 8th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, New Hampshire.   This was taken during the filming of Episode 104- “Party on Ice”. Alex Plummer is a difficult person to get to hold still long enough to take a picture.  He’s hyper, both in actions and words.  He’s like a kinetic energy machine, always doing something.  Sometimes even fishing!     Alex has a big spirit and is a kind soul, open and unguarded! .  A self-admitted “hugger”, he is welcoming and kind to strangers, which is a huge aspect of his personal appeal.  Then of course, there’s the wild side of the person whom is referred to by his friends as “AP”.  I’ve never seen Alex let anything get in the way of a good time – ever!  For Alex, downtime is just a breath in-between adventures!  He plays hard and doesn’t take any of it too seriously.  His attitude is perfect for his age and place in life.  He’s refreshing and has been a pleasure to work with since the day we met!  – The show airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Saturday, February 8th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, New Hampshire.   This was taken during the filming of Episode 104- “Party on Ice”. In a scene that is reminiscent of a Christmas Eve creche, Alex Plummer & Wade Bigelow prepare to set off a home-made cannon in celebration of the annual Meredith Rotary Derby.  This is the dead of the winter, so it was probably not quite 7:00pm, but the scene was quite comical to me when I saw it, and still is!  I really love the late day light in winter.  It makes ordinary scenes into memorable images.  Glad I hung around to watch!

ICE HOLES – Kahtoola to the Rescue

 Kahtoola to the Rescue

MICROspikes!!

On Location with ICE HOLES Series Creator Steve Marsel

This photograph taken on location on the set during the filming of ICE HOLES Episode 102 – “Now We’re Cookin” by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel.  It was taken on  Sunday, January 19th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith New Hampshire. Day 3 of shooting was my first day on-set .  It was a strange weather day. 51F with a warm misting rain was not the weather one typically associates with January or ice fishing.  It was miserable for the crew and was creating havoc for the equipment.  Not to mention that there was virtually no traction for the crew or cast!  Noise Boys Production Audio Recordest MacAulay Flynt had already taken a hard fall by the time I arrived on Lake Winnipesaukee.  I however was not having this problem! That night I wrote an email to Danny Giovale, the President & CEO of [addlink url=”http://www.http://kahtoola.com/” text=”Kahtoola”].  They make what are called [addlink url=”http://kahtoola.com/product/microspikes” text=”MICROspikes”].  They are like the crampons that are used for scaling glaciers, but easier to get on and off!  I wrote in-part:

“We are at the very beginning of an 8-week shoot that will bring is to some of the most popular ice fishing derbies in North America including the Brainerd Jaycees ICE FISHING EXTRAVAGANZA, the largest in North America!  (See attached press release)  I wondering if you view this as an is an opportunity to show tens of thousands of ice fishing enthusiasts all over North America and potentially millions of viewers of the series how the pros negotiate the perils of walking on ice.  I am writing to ask you for MICROspikes for our entire crew and cast to be worn throughout the shoot.  I’m hoping you can see the benefits.”

Mr Giovale came through with MICROspikes for our entire cast & crew!  Many many thanks to you Danny.  MICROspikes were just what the crew needed !

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Sunday, January 19th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith New Hampshire.  This was taken during the filming of ICE HOLES Episode 102 – “Now We’re Cookin” This is an example of an “OTF Interview”.  OTF stands for “on the fly,” and it’s a type of interview that is done on the spur of the moment with little or no planning.   They are generally emotion based, and you needn’t bother to ask for point-to-point setup information in an OTF situation  An OTF interview is used when something dramatic has just happened, but the dust has pretty much settled.  The director (Mark Therrien) doesn’t interrupt characters that are still talking to each other about a dramatic event, rather wait for them to finish when they are alone.  If the character is doing something and you want them to explain their actions while they are doing it, particularly if their action is the subject of the episode.  It’s a chance to have them explain to you what they are doing and why.   ICE HOLES airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Sunday, January 19th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith New Hampshire.  This was taken during the filming of ICE HOLES Episode 102 – “Now We’re Cookin” If you look carefully you can tell that there’s a snow squall in the distance.  The snow in the distance combined with some low hanging fog is filtering the light giving the set an eerie quality.  In this shot Joshua & Donk are playing a scene in which they hatch a plan to pull a practical joke on Wade & Alex.  Donk is an ex-Marine and this is the episode where Josh established Donk as his “secret weapon”.  The plan involves Donk donning a wetsuit and SCUBA gear, and entering the frigid water.  He swims underwater and takes a hold of their fishing line.  They think they have caught “the big one”!!!  ICE HOLES airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Saturday, January 18th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith New Hampshire.  This was taken during the filming of ICE HOLES Episode 102 – “Now We’re Cookin” It was a wintry morning when I happened upon cast member Wade Bigelow emerging from his bob-house after a long night of fishing.  It was not unusual for the cast members to fish throughout the night (at least at the beginning of the shoot) as they sought to hone their skills and to understand the body of water on which they were fishing.   On a winter outdoor shoot no one should be surprised to wake up and see snow falling.  And yet, somehow Wade appears to be a bit craggy and NOT entertained by the seasonal “festive” atmosphere the snow has brought with it.   My memory is that Wade was headed to the hotel to grab some aspirin and a shower.  ICE HOLES airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Saturday, January 18th, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith New Hampshire.  This was taken during the filming of ICE HOLES Episode 102 – “Now We’re Cookin” It’s a winter outdoor shoot so no one should be surprised when you wake up and see snow falling.  And yet, somehow the conditions and the job at hand don’t seem to jibe with each other.  This is a shot of Joshua & Donk in front of Joshes new and outrageous bob-house.  I tip my hat to the crew who came back day after day to these “less than idea” conditions and gave it their all.  It takes a great work ethic, and a lot of heart!  I learned so much from the crew and I’m deeply grateful!

I don’t think I will ever be able to convey through a still photo the ind=credible pain one feels when the temperature 0s -20F and the wind is blowing!     This is a photo of cast member Alex Plummer.  Notice how little skin is exposed to the air.  You’re probably saying he’s OK, look at how bundled up he is.  WRONG.  There is virtually  o way to protect yourself from these frigid temperatures!     It’s really painful.   I’m hoping that when you look at this photo, you have a clue about just how cold it was!  ICE HOLES airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.

This photograph taken on location on the set of National Geographic Channel’s ICE HOLES by Series Creator & Executive Producer Steve Marsel  Saturday, March 1st, 2014 on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, New Hampshire.   This was taken during the filming of Episode 107 – “Going Big”. Alex takes his love of extreme sports to the next level when he attempts to jump a bob-house on his snowboard to settle a bet the he and Wade have made with Josh, Todd, and Wob.   It’s a very dangerous move, but something that Alex has done before.  With pride on the line, Alex and Wade pull out all the stops to wow the crowds and silence their fishing buddies.  There’s a lot at stake here, and our boys will stop at nothing to prove their points!  This is an amazing episode, proving once again that when it comes to the ice fishing, it really NOT about the fish!  ICE HOLES airs Fridays on National Geographic Channel.
