You may notice on our Experience page, that we often work with the same producers again and again. This is a testament to the quality of service provided by Conundrum Ventures and our crews. Here is what some our our production partners have to say about their experiences with us.
Keeping your film crew safe in all locations

The knowledge that the Conundrum crew and Chris(Owens) has of the truly "Out There" Alaska landscapes has allowed me to put images on the screen that border on "impossible. Chris has a quick and sharp mind that production crews love, logistics and Alaska's vast variety of locations are second nature to him. In the 10 years I've worked with him, I've always had the confidence to trust his every move and suggestion, he has been a great asset to the many productions we have created in Alaska.

'In a world of shrinking budgets and tight deadlines, getting the right people for the job is critical. I've had the pleasure of working with Chris Owens several times. He's delivered everything promised, on budget, on time, and with a bunch of good times and laughs along the way.'

Warren Miller Entertainment testimonial for Chris Owens and Conundrum Ventures:

I found working with Chris to be incredibly helpful. When planning for film production Chris works with you to define objectives, creates discipline around considering the issues, asks probing, challenging questions and finds a game plan to achieve results.

Chris understands how things in the mountains work (and sometimes don't work) and blends dozens of moving parts into decisions that will help make your production needs a success. From US Forest Service permits, travel and lodging logistics, snow safety, catering, to ocean- river - backcountry transportation; Chris can deliver on all fronts.

Chris will bring organization to the conflicting AK meteorological forecasts, chaotic film crew schedules and changing athlete availability, predicting snow conditions all while insuring that our crew is well cared for too. Chris will help you meet your objectives to insure that your AK production experience is successful.

I really appreciate the extra mile Chris and his team go to for us.

I have had the opportunity to work with Chris on many an occasion over the last fifteen years. On the several projects we have worked together on Chris has been a great asset and professional, dealing with everything from helicopter contracts, land use permits, remote lodge logistics and everything in between. When working in Alaska, he is on the short list of people I call.
