Winner BEST Cinematography at the Documentary Film Festival 2021.
What made you get into filmmaking? This is one of the most frequent questions I receive when discussing my career path in wildlife cinematography and photography. The answer really is quite simple: I love the process, the connection and creativity of combining all these elements into a story that is not only worth telling but is done so in a way as to create connection between my art, and the audience that takes their time to view it. I firmly believe that if you are going to tell a story, you need to tell it with as much passion as you can in order to project that across the screen to engage the audience on the other side.
Tadpoles: The Big Little Migration was one such film, and we have been humbled by the reception the public has given this short documentary. It recently won “Best Cinematography” at the Documentary Film Festival, held virtually this year in L.A. The films are viewed by a panel of a select group of people, and the amazing thing about this Festival is that each of these inciteful audience members then provided a review on the film. The feedback was more than we could ever have hoped for! Thoughtful and knowledgeable comments ranging from the cinematography, to the narration, music, and many more aspects was truly humbling, and reminds me why I love creating art in this format.
At the end of the day, it’s about sharing beautiful stories thorough the art of filmmaking, and it was an honour to be recognized by Documentary Film Festival and its talented panel of audience members and judges.
