Aerial video frame grab of polar bear airlift operation

Here’s a particularly interesting motion edit I completed recently. As you may know, I am a cineflex operator working mostly with ZatzWorks here in Alaska. This footage that Daniel Zatz came home from Canada with was just too strange. I had fun putting this short edit together, hope you enjoy.

Here’s what Daniel had to say about it:

Late fall in Churchill, Manitoba– before ice forms on Hudson Bay polar bears enter the town of Churchill. But not for long! Wildlife biologist capture bears before they cause harm and airlift them away from town. The bears are sedated for the flight, and biologist wait to make sure the bears wake safely before departing. We filmed this sequence with our Cineflex V14 from a Bell Long Ranger to help Wildlife Media in their upcoming polar bear feature release.
