The Nat Geo Channel presents a conversation with the brave crew who endured life in one of the coldest and most remote places on Earth to bring you the extraordinary show Life Below Zero. What does it take to film such an extreme show set deep in the remote, Alaskan wilderness?

This Thursday, hear from Executive Producer Joe Litzinger, Editor Michael Swingler, and Directors of Photography David Lovejoy and Benji Lanpher as they describe the challenges of daily life in this unpredictable land that is 300 miles away from the nearest town. Depending on the camp and time of year, crews and gear are transported to each shoot location via plane, boat or snow machine.

The event is hosted by Rico Gagliano. And to set the mood...frozen treats from the Coolhaus truck will be provided! To attend, RSVP here.
