Background

A fusion of science and art.

Open Boat Films was founded by Stephani Gordon, an experienced marine field biologist, who wanted to share the stunning imagery and unique stories of rugged coastlines, rivers, mountains, and islands with others who are curious about the biological and cultural diversity of our wild and remote world.

Open Boat Films was started in Livingston, Montana, a great little mountain town on the banks of the Yellowstone River. We now operate out of Portland, Oregon, a stones throw from the mighty Pacific Ocean, the focus of much of our work.
