Royal Alberta Museum


North Shore was proud to participate in the creation of the new Royal Alberta Museum in downtown Edmonton. Our films can be found throughout the Human History, Natural History, and Bugs Galleries. The exhibits were designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates and LHSA+DP, and built by Kubik.

We created 27 films and 8 audio pieces for the new exhibits. Our Human History Gallery films explored topics ranging from Alberta’s ancient medicine wheels, to Albertans’ passion for pickup trucks, to making a Sunday dinner in 1928, and the early days of television in the province, among many others. The project included catching sunrises at remote medicine wheels, 4K re-enactment filming in a period kitchen, and working with a wide range of motion and still image archival sources. We also produced 15 short films on insect life for the Bugs Gallery and Natural History Gallery, exploring predation, parasitic behavior, and the extraordinarily complex world of social insects around the globe. All films were produced in English and French versions.

“The museum is very pleased with the end product and the professionalism of the North Shore team in the creative productions of the digital media to enhance the visitor experience to our museum. We are excited and proud to be able to show the quality of work North Shore Productions has done for the museum to Albertans.”
