Exclusive clip: History’s “Alone”June 02, 2015

Ahead of U.S. net History’s premiere of self-shot survival show Alone (pictured) on June 18, realscreen brings you an exclusive clip from the Leftfield Pictures-produced series, which sees 10 survivalists head into the woods of Canada’s Vancouver Island. Without any camera crews, producers or teams present, members of the group – all men – are separated from one another and given only a backpack of survival gear and camera equipment to film themselves.
Speaking to realscreen for our recent feature on self-shot series, David George – president of Leftfield Entertainment and executive producer on Alone – said the show brought a new set of production challenges for the company, and his team had to train itself to step back from being too hands-on. The most challenging aspect of the series, George added, were the masses of footage producers needed to wade through in post-production.
Alone debuts on History on June 18 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
