Arctic Directory 2018: Documentary featuring history of ASRC wins Emmy Award

Petroleum News

Arctic Slope Regional Corp. said it is pleased to have won an Emmy Award from the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for its long-format documentary “True North, the Story of ASRC.”

The 55th annual award ceremony was held June 9 in Seattle, Washington. The corporation was also nominated for an Emmy for a series of television commercials, which aired throughout the state in 2017.

“In the fewer than 50 years since our incorporation, ASRC has grown into the largest locally-owned and operated business in Alaska, and that was no accident,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., ASRC president and CEO. “This production really highlights the decision-making process from our early leaders, based on their Iñupiaq values, that led to our success and I’m honored the documentary is being so well received. I’d also like to thank everyone who had a hand in putting this unique project together.”

“True North, the Story of ASRC” shares the story of the corporation’s early leaders - the people of Alaska’s North Slope - from their fight for land before statehood, to the signing of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, to the present day strategic planning process to create additional opportunities for the corporation’s expanding pool of shareholder owners.

The documentary took more than two years to complete, utilizing archival video as well as new hi-resolution footage from every community on Alaska’s North Slope. It will be reshown statewide later this summer.
