The story

Climate activist Greta Thunberg takes a year off school to explore the science of global warming and challenge world leaders, calling for action on climate change.

Wild Bus Films


We worked with BBC studios to tell the story of the journey that Greta made across North America, to illustrate some of the major impacts of climate change on the continent. Our small crew filmed drone, ground sequences and epic GVs, across frozen British Columbia and Alberta. Shooting from Abbotsford to Edmonton to Jasper National Park, and using a rig for car to car filming, our small crew was able to be nimble, efficient and responsive, whilst capturing epic and beautiful content to help tell this important story.

“Louisa and the team at Wild Bus Films did a fabulous job for us remote filming a series of key sequences to a creative brief.  The material they returned was extremely high quality and was the same calibre as if we’d directed ourselves on location.  Communication was excellent throughout the process, including whilst on shoots, and the scheduling and planning were all handled by Wild Bus with minimal input from the (BBC) production team.”
