Poles Apart tells the story of an unlikely meeting between Nanuk, a tough female polar bear, and Aklak, an enthusiastic male grizzly bear, brought together by their changing habitats. The lack of food in a melting Arctic has left the solitary Nanuk desperately hungry. When the hopeful and eager Aklak crashes into Nanuk's world, she has to decide if the naive grizzly bear is her food or her friend.
I like telling stories and creating characters, and have always loved filmmaking for all its creative possibilities and collaborative potential. I come from a live-action background, but have recently been captivated by the magical world of stop-motion animation.
