Niagara Falls

Anticipating heavy rain, our team was thrilled to see sunny skies at Niagara Falls. This was a highlighted destination for many on our trip, and it did not disappoint.

Located on the Niagara River, Niagara Falls is a collective name for three waterfalls that border between United States and Canada; most specifically, between the state of New York and the province of Ontario. The falls form the southern end of the Niagara Gorge.

The three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. Together, they form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world.


Our team visited the falls on the Canadian side. We started our visit above the falls, shooting B-roll of the fast-flowing river. We then walked down to join the hundreds of tourists overlooking the falls. After shooting for the documentary, we took the rest of the afternoon off, enjoying the beautiful sights and spending time all together before our director of photography, John Struzenberg, headed home. 

Because of our busy schedule, our team never had a chance to be tourists. Today was a nice change of pace, as we had time to go to the gift shop and buy souvenirs for ourselves and loved ones.

We ended our day reminiscing on our travels over dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. Afterwards, we went back to the hotel and said our goodbyes to John.
