On this week’s episode, Nick Ozorak of At The Railyard (www.AtTheRailyard.com), interviews Stephen Low, director of the IMAX® movie “Rocky Mountain Express.” Stephen talks about the process of filming Canadian Pacific #2816 as well as his lifelong interest in trains and filmmaking.
Rocky Mountain Express is the passionate undertaking of Canadian filmmaker Stephen Low, director of more than fifteen projects for the giant screen. Low’s enthusiasm for trains was kindled as a child on visits with his father to the rail yards in Montreal in the late-1950s when the last of the great steam locomotives were still in service. Later, out of University in the early 70s, Low worked as a brakeman on freight trains on the Canadian Pacific Railway before ultimately turning his attention to the craft of filmmaking and a thirty year career shaping extraordinary experiences for the giant IMAX® screen.
