Behind the scenes filming in Antarctica – The Cameraman’s View


Cameraman Simon Vacher takes us through filming an iceberg sequence through the Gerlache Straight, which forms part of the Antarctic Peninsula.

The sequence reveals the challenge of filming the reveal and grandeur of icebergs which regularly break off the vast ice shelves that form Antarctica, and float North East with the prevailing Antarctic currents. It’s not an easy job! Simon dangled from a harness, and was smashed into ice floes and had a brush encounter with a Leopard Seal. Camerwork, editing, graphics and grading by Simon Vacher Films. Produced and directed by Simon Vacher.
