After 2 years of development, preparation and anticipation, our team travelled to Argentina to shoot the principal photography for Blind Spot; Moments Unseen. The film crew arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, followed by the visually-impaired riders Ruth, Terry and Carly. The next day, the team caught a cross-country flight to Neuquen (see map).
From Neuquen, it was a day-long, dirt-road drive to Buta Mallin (a goat-herder’s outpost) where the riders and film crew met expedition leader T.A. Carrithers, his crew chief Victor and the three guides Brett, Kyala and Stephanie.
We mounted our horses and rode by moonlight to the expedition home base: Estancia Ranquilco.
During the first few days on the ranch, the blind riders received intensive horsemanship training and developed navigational techniques with their guides. On March 15th, the expedition team hit the trail for a 10-day mountain trek though the Andes for a once-in a lifetime adventure.
The Argentina shoot wrapped on April 1.
