Nat Geo Wild - Big Cat Week - Man v Lion

Nat Geo Wild Man V LionWhat a unique experience to work alongside some of the top presenter led natural history filmmakers in the world! The National Geographic film crew assembled for this shoot clearly had a passion for this project, and it shows in the final results.

We had the opportunity to work with the team for a few days, capturing aerial footage with the drone of the landscape, the wildlife and the presenter, Boon.

"Your work was wonderful and we are very proud of the show."
-- Gurney Productions (for Nat Geo)

 

We equipped our octocopter drone with a FLIR thermal camera as well as the Canon 5D mark III shooting with magic lantern raw.

The FLIR camera on the drone was able to capture a unique perspective of the lions and prey animals from the air.

The Man v Lion episode became a huge success, and even the preview video above has received 1 million views, far more views than any of the other preview videos on the Nat Geo Wild YouTube channel.

If you have a need for a drone for a Natural History production in southern Africa, we would love to have the opportunity to work with you.
