The Serac Team
Our film crew specializes in extreme adventure filmmaking and wielding cameras in the world's most intense environments. We share a common interest in telling stories with meaning and that celebrate the human spirit. The crew is led by Michael Brown, who has made films on all seven continents and is hailed by many as America's finest high-altitude filmmaker.

Among the group's accomplishments: over 50 expeditions to all seven continents, winning more than 50 international film festival and industry awards. The team has shot for National Geographic, Discovery Channel, NBC, CBS, ABC, ESPN, OLN, the BBC, Rush HD and many more. They have also produced, directed, shot and edited many of their own films.


Michael Brown Michael Brown

Over the last two decades, Michael Brown has climbed to the top of two of the world's most demanding professions. As a world-class mountaineer, he has summited Mount Everest five times. As a three-time Emmy award-winning filmmaker, he has made over fifty expeditions to all seven continents, all with cameras rolling. Michael has made a habit of going to the world's harshest, most dangerous environments - the South Pole, the North Face of the Eiger, and 1,500 feet underground in caves - and always comes back with incredible footage and compelling stories. Outside Magazine describes the cerebral filmmaker as a "swashbuckling librarian", and Men's Journal calls him "a master of gut-dropping action." As Founder of the Outside Adventure Film School, Michael practices another of his favorite pursuits: teaching.
