I wanted to thank you guys again for pulling everything together on short notice. The show looked fantastic and all of your hard work and last minute assistance really came through in flying colors on screen.
We will definitely work on future projects together again! Great attitude and approach to safety, all needed when working with folks in Alaska’s challenging terrain.
The ABAK team was invaluable during our first two seasons of film production in the wilds of Alaska. From rigging technical systems in challenging terrain to organizing mechanized transport to remote locations, these guys can be trusted to get the job done safely and efficiently.
Above and Beyond were invaluable when we produced the show Expedition Alaska for Discovery Channel. They are a highly professional company, and it was great to work with people that we could wholeheartedly rely on, particularly in Alaska’s extreme terrains. In fact we’d have been hard pushed to make show without them.
I would like to thank you all for the enormous amount of support lent to us on our film shoot in Juneau, Alaska for John Muir in the New World, a PBS Production. The level of coordination was extraordinary; allowing for our shoot to be as organized and productive as possible. Everyone on the crew was exceedingly friendly and helpful. The level of wilderness expertise paired with the company’s experience working with media crews made Above and Beyond the perfect team to work with.
