An early-morning recce uncovers the real reason for the shaking – an enormous blade cut through the woodland, as if a meteor had part the scene. Man vs. shooting star? Figure once more.
Canadian chief and co-author Adam Massey gives a captivating turn on the discovered footage design. Instead of present us solely with Doug’s recordings, he intercuts a customary third-individual perspective, for more assortment and less unsteadiness.
