Behind The Scenes with Dr. Oakley

A few months back I got a call from Variable, a New York film collective that does some pretty amazing commercial work. They were on their way to the Yukon to shoot a promo for the National Geographic Wild's Dr. Oakley: Yukon Vet show, and were looking for someone to shoot a Behind The Scenes video of their shenanigans. Needless to say, I was stoked to have the opportunity. They flew in a team of 12 or so people from all over the states and BC: the camera team was from LA, the Producers/Director from NY, a Drone team from Nashville, and even a trained bald eagle from Victoria (I guess they didn't trust the local eagles after that whole Eagle Cam/Dog's breakfast fiasco). It was also good to see one or two familiar Yukon faces on set too. Although the weather was uncooperative, from herding buffalo with a drone to catching eagles and chasing horses, it was definitely one of the wildest shoots I've been on...I guess that's to be expected when working for Nat. Geo. Wild!
