Greenland Expedition Summer 2016. Matt Rutherford and his crew gather data for multiple ocean research projects along Greenland’s west coast well above the Arctic circle. This time Matt has a bit more video capability than a single lipstick cam. With a dedicated cinematographer aboard shooting 4K and capturing pro sound, and drones for aerial photography this series will be an exciting visual and audio experience above the Arctic Circle. Great job Matt – looking forward to more.
