Whistler Blackcomb XXS: A day in the life of a "miniature" Whistler
Whistler Blackcomb XXS is a day in the life of a miniature Whistler, "the biggest little ski area in the world."
The video, filmed/edited/produced by Switchback Entertainment, was shot on location in Whistler Village and the surrounding Whistler Blackcomb mountains. It documents a day in the life of this Olympic venue, transforming the town and mountains into a real-life snow globe.
This unique style of cinematography makes people, places and things appear to be tiny miniature models. It was inspired by stop motion & tilt shift photography techniques.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
