Recently Arctic Kingdom was contacted by NBC- Universal Films to provide location suggestions for certain ice conditions needed to complete visual effects plates for the the upcoming Drew Barrymore film – Everybody Loves Whales. The plot of the film sounds great, “A nonprofit aid worker and a government worker spark as they work together in the effort to free three California gray whales who have become trapped under the ice of the Arctic Circle.” It’s slated for a January 2012 release
Kuujjuaq, Nunavik was our suggestion, and it came through with flying colours. Ice floes, pans of ice, ice ridges and perfect weather conditions made for the perfect 2 day film shoot.
