Through exploration, adventure, and artful storytelling we strive to convey the scientific understanding of our natural world to a broader audience.
Utilizing our green platform, SV Barba, we venture into the harsh and little known world of the Arctic. We partner with scientists and scientific institutions to communicate the latest in research to the public enabling us all to be better stewards of our planet.
This season, winter 2018, the Way North Films team embarked on an ambitious project to document wild Orca in the Norwegian Arctic. Click below to learn more about what is in store for Arctic Sound.Learn more
