Yanbaru, Forests of the North

Yanbaru, Forests of the North

Yanbaru? “What or where the heck is that”? I hear you ask. Well it’s been an astonishing past few weeks since last writing. Happy to say that the lack of entries have been down to the positive eventuality that I’ve been out in the wilds with little to no Internet connections and very weak at best when there was. My favoured part of the job is of course the scrambling through snake infested forests, wading up rivers and experiencing that […]

Moondog Labs anamorphic Lens adds dynamic production value.

Feeling the Squeeze?

Moondog Labs, great name. My attention was drawn to this product as I was researching the potential for iOS and smart device filmmaking. Cameras in smart devices and cell phones are becoming increasingly potent, viable and cost effective to the struggling filmmaker. To this end it only goes to say that third party manufacturers are going to take notice and devise support products accordingly. I am of course talking about the Moondog Labs 1.33x Anamorphic Lens the earlier models of […]

Invasion of the Killer Toads

It doesn’t seem to end.

The illegal wildlife trade is […]

I Can’t Imagine…

A World without Elephants or Rhino? What kind of a World would that be? My generation, those born in the 60’s, sheesh, time flies, have been privy to witnessing some of the greatest, and lowest, moments of human endeavour. We saw the jump from black and white to colour TV, we’ve seen a man on the moon, or was that a film set in a garage in Nevada? we’ve welcomed the digital age and technological advances thought impossible just a […]

African Wildlife Crisis

I don’t know about you but I get increasingly depressed when I read of the daily struggle the iconic wildlife in Africa is currently facing. Little Asian men, in every sense, and their incessant drive to boost their flagging libido’s and status have been the driving factor¬†behind what is potentially the most intense and prolonged poaching phase these animals have ever faced. The numbers are simply mind boggling with an estimated 96 Elephants throughout the African Continent are killed daily, […]

Sea Wild Earth video intro Motion Graphic

Over the past number of years I’ve gone off more on a photographic tangent than that of my initial drive as a cameraman. I started out mainly underwater and have since migrated more towards terrestrial filming and imagery making. This is about to change, and hopefully in a dramatic way. Discussions are underway that could lead to an incredible adventure on the plains of Africa, a return to the red clay, to a place where days are palpable, alive and […]
