What We Do

We’ve got everything you need to launch your next Arctic Film

Cinematography

We shoot everywhere from the North to South Poles, from Baja California to the Red Sea, Micronesia, to the Galapagos. With an watchful eye on new technology, we experiment with new ways of telling innovative stories, and have jumped into the world of VR films.

Directing

We are experienced to shoot rare animal behavior captured in very difficult circumstances; sometimes under the Arctic ice cap or on thin ice. Polar bears, walrus and narwhal are routine subjects, and sleeping by -30Cº along with the Inuit a regular pleasure.

Writing

Our research on arctic science, biology, climate change and northern geo political issues allow us to create current, unknown stories. Our interest is to inspire discussion on social cultural issues that affect our world today.

Film Screenings

Currently we are showing our latest film Seablind. The film has been shown at the COP 21 Paris Climate Talks, European Union Parliament, Dutch Parliament, Port Of Rotterdam, UNESCO and IMO, all in the effort to raise discussion on how to make shipping cleaner and transition to less polluting fuels.

Stock Footage

We have hundreds of hours of assorted polar imagery available for license. Polar Bears, Walrus and Ice – underwater and surface footage are our specialty. To order stock footage from Arctic Bear Productions, please contact us.

Lectures

Our extensive field experience and close work with scientists and First Nation make us excellent guest lecturers on subjects ranging from arctic animal behaviors to marine climate change policiy, as well as contemporary polar exploration. Watch Sarah Robertson speak at the World Science Festival.

“Climate change is a bunch of statistics for many people, but regionally climate change is affecting not only people but animals. We wanted to really settle in on the moments and the decisions and reactions of animals when they are faced in regional areas with climate change.”

Sarah Robertson
Sarah Robertson Writer, ABP

“Polar bears and walruses are resourceful learners, so over the short term they’ll find new ways to hunt and live, but they can’t do the impossible, and in the long term we really don’t know what will happen to them, which is true also for ourselves. It’s going to be a journey for every creature on the planet.”

Adam Ravetch

"While the film is both heartwarming and humorous, it truly brings to life the damage the climate crisis is doing to our planet. If you are looking for a film your entire family will enjoy this weekend, "Arctic Tale" is sure to please."
