Our IMAX crew during filming of the Grizzly sequences!

Great Bear Rainforest trip Give away below :)

From Ian McAllister:
The #GreatBearRainforest film crew and the Kitasoo/Xai'Xais First Nation grizzly bear researchers take a moment after a super fun and productive couple of days shooting the grizzly bear sequence.

This was the magical day that a grizzly bear wandered into the middle of our rub tree/mark trail setup and of course, no one needed to be told to keep rolling the cameras. So stoked to see this on the giant screen soon and also to see young Mercedes, pictured in the middle here, light up the screen with her infectious smile and in-depth knowledge of her culture and territory.

The Kitasoo/Xai'Xais Spirit Bear Lodge has generously donated a 5-day trip for two to their territory in the Great Bear Rainforest. Go to to enter for a chance to win a trip of a lifetime through them or through Mothership Adventures, who have donated a 10-day trip aboard their luxury adventure vessel the Columbia III. Thank you both for your generosity.

Pacific Wild

Canada has gone from 1% marine protection to 7.9% protection in only 4 years. Still short of the 10% by 2020 target pledged as part of the UN Convention of Biodiversity (CBD), a new report by SeaBlue Canada shows that more than half of that 7.9% is protected through Fisheries Act marine refuges. These “refuges” don't restrict shipping, oil and gas activity, or mining. We need stronger protection and equitable governance for sensitive marine areas.

Read the report here:

You can help improve protection in our marine refuges. Write your letter today in support of adopting internationally-accepted minimum standards for Canada’s marine protected areas:



Proud to now be a registered Drone Pilot for the International Cinematographers Guild Union (ICG 669). This allow us to work on union shows and big Hollywood productions and films :)

[10/12/18]   We were super pleased to be chosen as the Chief Drone Pilot for this incredible documentary by Pacific Wild! The full film will be ready for your viewing pleasure internationally in mid February.


Great Bear Rainforest Teaser Trailer

2 years ago I went for a 10 day interview to be the Chief Drone Pilot on an IMAX. Thankfully I survived! This led to 6 different trips in 3 different seasons. We explored and filmed on Ian McAllister's Catamaran from the the north tip of Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert in an area known as the Great Bear Rainforest. In 5 months it will premiere in IMAX screens around the world. This is the first trailer being released to the public, so make sure to click on HD! Such an amazing crew who dedicated nearly 3 years to this including: Deirdre Leowinata and the team at Pacific WildWild, Andy Maser Cheri Herbert Benjamin C Goertzen Haley Rae-Ann and so many others!
The release February 19th, 2019!

A quick little blog on the initial weeks of setup and filming in the Great Bear Rainforest with Pacific Wild for their IMAX :) I will continue updating as the season progresses. Filming with RED Helium 8K on a drone for IMAX documentary. RED Helium on the UAV known as the Freefly Alta 8 drone, an amazing platform for cinematography. 03/09/2017

The View from Out Here

A nicely written article on the IMAX we are helping film in the great Bear Rainforest. It’s early, still a few hours to go until enough light descends on the estuary for filming. But S/V Habitat is bustling as the crew prepares the gear for the coming day.

This is Andy with the new Weapon LE with 8K Helium sensor under the Freefly Alta 8 drone. It's rumoured that there has only been about 30 of these released around the world so we are feeling very fortunate to get our hands on one!
A common question we get from the curious is about our weight. Our total take off weight is 37.5 lbs, about 18.75 Kg.

We were asked by the very talented Dave Wallace of Innovate Imageworks to do the drone aerials for the promo video for Craigdarroch Castle. Couldn't be happier seeing the castle showcased in such a beautiful way!

Lavish lives and wayward daughters. The Victorian Era is alive at Craigdarroch Castle.


Filming for Mike Wiegele Heli Skiing ( was a truly fantastic experience! Being in the middle of the Monashee and Cariboo mountains gave us fantastic access to so much terrain and incredible snow. Our guides and our pilots were super experienced, knowledgable and entertaining and made us feel completely safe and at ease. The staff at the lodge were so welcoming and did everything in there power to help us out. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime! A big thanks to Mike for having the vision to create this fabulous experience for us all of us to enjoy!
