The award-winning director of "Chasing Ice" talks about his experiences in the making of the film on the Google campus. In 2007, Jeff Orlowski got his first taste of the Arctic when as a Stanford student he seized an opportunity to work as a videographer with National Geographic photographer James Balog on the initial expedition of The Extreme Ice Survey (EIS). That winter, the EIS team scouted and filmed glaciers that now appear in the documentary feature film Chasing Ice.
Jeff Orlowski is an American filmmaker from Staten Island, a borough of New York City. He is the director of the documentary Chasing Ice, which he began shooting while still an undergraduate student at Stanford University. Chasing Ice won the "Excellence in Cinematography" award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. He is an alumnus of Camp Rising Sun.
Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey.Find out more
