Cody Dawson is a videographer from the Kwakwaka’wakw and Gitxsan Nations. He recently published a video project called ‘Fish Out Of Water’ and it’s about the salmon run in Campbell River, British Columbia.
Here is what Cody had to say about the video:
My original idea for the video was about the cultural significance of salmon. This would've been a great learning experience for me, and I wanted to share that with everyone too. As I started filming, I wanted to capture salmon swimming up the river, an eagle and/or a bear catching salmon. I decided not to go with my original plan because I really liked the footage I had, and wanted the video to focus on the story of salmon in Campbell River.
