Filmmaker Matt Hardy and his teammates from The Coldhouse Collective are accustomed​ to encountering the unexpected while working in remote locations. On a recent trip to Greenland, they experienced a rude awakening when a polar bear attempted to enter the Sydcap Hut, where they were camped out for a Berghaus shoot. In this video, the crew describes their encounter with the inquisitive polar bear. As they told us, “Matt played it cool, though, and being from Dorset, England, reacted in 'proper' Dorset style.” You can follow Coldhouse Collective on Facebook here.
