Director Abraham Joffe and cinematographer Dom West of United Film Works suffered lost cameras and frostbite while shooting their short Ghosts of the Arctic, which focuses on photographer Joshua Holko’s efforts to capture a glimpse of polar bears in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago. “In spite of the conditions, it was one of the most rewarding shoots we have all been involved in," says Joffe at NoFilmSchool, which details how the beautiful film was made.
