"We both love nature, period," Onskie said. "So I started doing this casually, more with photos. I did sell prints in stores, but I got away from that. I took more interest in capturing video."
The result is Nu-Sun Cinema, a non-profit wildlife-based production company."This is more than a hobby," Onskie said. "This is a passion. I do it because I love it, not because I have to."
Early Nu-Sun videos capture animals in the wild, from deer, fox and coyotes in Manitoba, to sea birds and jellyfish off the coast of New Brunswick. Recently, though, Onskie has been capturing candid footage of the abundance of local wildlife that make their way between Kilcona Park and Birds Hill Provincial Park.Â
"I got thinking about all the wonderful animals that come through here," he said, referring to his back acre. "I’ve had bucks duelling here, during the rut. The stuff I’am getting just right here, it€’s amazing! I position cameras in different places, different angles. I learn as I go."
