In Between is a multi-awarded short documentary by Rolf Steinmann who funded this project completely by himself.
Rolf takes us in a remote corner of the world where a living relic from a prehistoric age still exists. A creature that once roamed the northern plains alongside mammoths and sabertooth cats. This shortfilm is the result of his journey into his world. A world unknown to most of us.
Rolf Steinmann is a wildlife cameraman from Munich, Germany. He specializes in long lens work with very skittish wildlife and innovative time-lapse techniques. By spending lots of time in the field he tries to immerse deeply into the animal’s world. He is currently strongly involved into TV bluechip natural history productions. Besides that he was shooting on a Disney Nature movie in 2014 and in the same year got his first Emmy nomination for Best Cinematography. In the beginning of 2015 he finished his short film “In Between” about his favorite animal in the world – musk oxen.
The muskox (Ovibos moschatus, also spelled musk ox and musk-ox), in Inuktitut umingmak, is an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted during the seasonal rut by males, from which its name derives. This musky odor is used to attract females during mating season. Muskoxen primarily live in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland, with small introduced populations in Sweden, Siberia, Norway, and Alaska.
