We will be filming a documentary on a once-in-a-lifetime experience: a tough journey of almost 1800 kilometres through nothing but snow and ice. A struggle revolving around camaraderie, survival and people with a story to tell. This documentary will pose the ultimate challenge to the athletes and our film crew. The preparation, the training: we will cover it all.

Our objective: To convey our experiences and perspective through images at international outdoor film festivals. In this documentary we will show the real motivations of these adventurers. Are they in fact ‘extreme’ people? It will give viewers a unique insight into the lives of athletes. They will feel the cold and loneliness radiating from the screen.

What challenges are there making this documantery? During the shooting of this project we also will be shooting a 'making of' on the side line. What gear did we use? How did our Frozen Endurance Drone perform under these extreme conditions? How did we manage to keep the electronics working (or not) by minus 40C? In the upcoming DVD (or other digital media) will will be enclosing a 'making of' section as well so you can enjoy the full adventure.
