Cineflex V14HD filming of bears in Katmai National Park. The camera was the Sony HDC1500 with a Fujinon 42x 9.7mm lens. Lighting and wind conditions were perfectly aligned to allow the helicopter to remain downwind of the animals. Filmed from a Bell 206B-3 Jet Ranger provided by Pathfinder Aviation of Homer, Alaska.

The aerial crew based on the Kittiwake, a trawler from Kodiak, that is specifically set up for film and science teams. The ship has a helicopter landing platform on the bow, and we placed 5 barrels of Jet A on the ship ahead of time.

Footage was shot at 29.97PsF and recorded dual-link 4:4:4 on a Sony SRW1 to HDCAM SR tape. The original source tapes were digitized using an AJA Kona3 card to a MacPro and edited with Final Cut Pro 7 at our inhouse edit suite.

Music track is "Ancient Rituals" from
