Robert Moberg has immersed himself in the many facets of independent filmmaking including acting, writing, directing and producing for over two decades. Robert’s career has taken him to some of the most remote and spectacular locations on Earth including Greenland, the Torngat Mountains of northern Labrador, the Canadian Arctic via the northwest passage and the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. To raise awareness for climate change and plastic pollution Robert and his wife Vanessa recently spent six months living aboard a small sailboat and circumnavigating Vancouver Island. The mission, called "Sailing For Good" will be a feature documentary. Robert holds a commercial pilots licence with a seaplane rating and has flown over much of British Columbia. His passion for wildlife conservation and environmental awareness has been demonstrated with the feature documentaries, “Bighorns at the Junction” and “Giants Among Us - Rick Hansen and the Great White Sturgeon”, both of which broadcast nationally on the CBC Documentary Channel. More recently Robert has a new film, “Turbidity”, an intimate portrait of the environmentally devastating Mt Polley mine disaster near his hometown of Williams Lake BC. Turbidity will begin broadcast on the Knowledge Network fall 2019. Newly completed and starting its festival run is “The Way of the Hunter”, a film he has written and directed with the iconic National Film Board of Canada.
Vanessa Moberg has an honours degree in Business Administration majoring in Tourism. Her resume includes 15 years of marketing experience including Marketing Manager for Cruise Newfoundland Labrador and Brand Manager for Downtown Williams Lake.

We know air travel is going to be a part of this project. We will minimize this by staying at our filming locations for extended periods of up to three months.
When on location we pledge to travel self propelled if at all possible. Hike and bike! We will use modest and eco friendly accommodations at all times.
We are a crew of two, both vegetarians. We reduce, reuse, and recycle in that order. We continue to strive to live as sustainably as possible and to minimize our footprint.
