Imagine a place in America that is vast, wild and untouched, where some of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles unfold. Native people call it ‘the sacred place where life begins’.
An upcoming giant screen documentary, written and directed by IMAX producer Myles Connolly and the award-winning nature photographer and cinematographer Florian Schulz.
OnSight are excited to announce that we are working with Producer, Wolfgang Knöpfler (Sea of Shadows, Ivory Game) at Terra Mater Factual Studios and are proud to be part of this extraordinary journey through America's Arctic. OnSight will be providing Giant Screen (IMAX) post production on this amazing project, using our unique OPR (OnSight Picture Remastering) service. Covering full 6K picture post, 2D to 3D conversion, visual effects, shot extensions, bespoke giant screen deliverables and colour grading for both xenon and laser projection.
Join Florian’s five year journey as he tracks one of the longest animal migrations on earth, and witnesses pregnant female polar bears denning along the coastal plain. ‘There is no better venue to bring the wonders of the Arctic to life than on the giant screen,’ - Florian Schulz.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, located in the northeastern corner of Alaska, is one of the wildest places left on the planet - a symbol of wilderness that few have ever seen.
”America’s Arctic” will feature the first on-screen experience of this untouched land allowing people to see a world that has evolved intact and wild since the beginning of time.
The film will feature an extensive education program to extend learning off screen and into homes and classrooms worldwide. ‘America’s Arctic’ will reach online and local communities through an innovative and strategic engagement campaign to raise awareness about the fragile beauty of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
