Earning a Grierson Award, “Expedition Arktis – Arctic Drift” is one of the most successful science documentations. It followed the German icebreaker Polarstern to the northern-most expedition of mankind, MOSAIC. On the year-long field campaign, the world’s most renown scientists spent one year in the arctic ice, capturing a vanishing ecosystem.

In preparation for the succeeding documentation, “ArcWatch”, I worked together with director Philipp Griess. I oversaw the montage of secondary use video clips for exhibitions in the Deutsches Technimuseum Berlin. We also collaborated on the story development of “ArcWatch”, delineating storylines for a second field campaign.
