About this project
Risks and challenges
We have some very difficult and unique challenges to overcome when it comes to shooting The Rise that very few other documentaries ever have to face. For example, we are quite literally shooting on the side of mountains usually only accessible by snowmobile or helicopter, this has caused us to come up with new methods of transporting and setting up crew and equipment. Because the temperature can drop well below freezing, our film equipment has to be treated to handle this extreme climate. Just being in the Alaskan backcountry comes with its own set of dangers i.e. avalanches, wild animals, hypothermia etc. so safety has become our number one priority.
Firefight Films has prepared to deal with these and other challenges that may arise by spending over a year in preparation and planning up to this point so that we're able to address any situation that might occur. For any problems we couldn't have planned for, our undying tenacity and motivation to bring you the best snowmobile film ever made will get us through it, and at least we'll have it on film, which will only make The Rise that much better. We will be working with MotorFist and our other sponsors to produce all of the awesome rewards and make sure this process goes as smoothly as possible.
