Sounds like you'll need to actually go to antarctica...

Failing that you could most likely use photoshop to create several backdrops and use a 3d modelling/animation program along with motion tracking software to create an ice bridge, don't expect someone else to simply provide you with these things. It's your movie so you need to be responsible for realising it.

Give this trailer a watch :

It has some excellent CG sets, I'm sure it could give you some ideas. As for snow falling, that's something EffectsLab is more than capable of. By the time you need it, I imagine some snowy weather presets will be in the library.

It sounds like you're attempting something extremely ambitious, make sure what you're setting out to do is reasonable. You can make really great and effective movies without luxurious or over-labourious CG backdrops.

Either way, I wish you luck. wink

you can always make a green screen and built a set in front of it using Styrofoam and fake snow. good luck with it.
