“To find the wildlife, we drove over two hundred miles on a snowmobile in difficult conditions on a bumpy terrain, clogging and getting bruises. While filming we experienced three cases of frostbite first and second degree, and a lot of trouble with equipment and machinery because of the severe frosts. Battery discharged in a matter of minutes, the drones didn’t want to take off, the camera does not turn on, HDMI cables became brittle and cracked in the cold, freezing audio equipment, broke mount LCD screens, failed snowmobiles and much more.”
