National Geographic Channel commissioned us to create a promo for their popular show Life Below Zero. This new series put an emphasis on the survivalist’s life of intense preparation that would need to occur during the warmer climate of the great north. To convey this, we shot a series of time-lapsed ice melting over beds of moss and various types of foliage and debris, as well as several vignettes of work-related events, like chopping wood and stomping through mud.
