In June 2012 we took a Japanese film crew on a 13 days Alsek trip. Yoshie Kumagae from Whitehorse, Yukon was the interpreter and the film crew organizer. The 2 hrs production was about glacier bears, glaciers, adventure travel and nature.

It was a great trip. We had some adventure, quite a few bears footage and lots of beautiful scenery. The movie was aired in Japan this past summer, 2012.

It was a really fun projects and great to work with the film crew. Many thanks to Yoshie for all her work.

We worked with: Peter Rowe Productions, Inc, on an episode of the of “Angry Planet”, our new series for the Outdoor Life Network. Our episode, “Fire & Flood”, looked at forest fires and flooded rivers in the Territory.

Here are Peter’s comments:

” Bob, his son Kevin, and their team are all very skilled kayakers and raftsmen (and -women) that can take you to the most exciting rapids and get you through them safely. I highly recommend them to any filmmakers who want to get out on the water.”
