First North Productions is 100% Aboriginal owned and operated, and was established in 2004 by John Gon. Since its inception, Northern-based First North Productions has become a fully integrated independent production company that offers services and develops and produces its own media programs.
Our staff are professional First Nations' people, familiar with their cultures and traditions, their communities and the people of the Northwest Territories.
The Inuvialuit Communications Society was established in the early 80s and has produced and broadcast its shows on APTN, Uvagut TV, and Inuit TV. We work to preserve and promote Inuvialuit language and culture by recording and sharing our stories and experiences. We have a production department that consists of a camera operator and director of photography, and television producers specializing in all aspects of documentary film production and local and cultural consultation.
