Exciting developments in camera technology have leveled out of the playing field between the professional and the amateur and so the battle now for programme makers like award-winning wildlife filmmaker John Downer is having to produce something better than the average person.
The difference comes from investing into understanding the behavior of the animal and devising a way to capture those unique moments, using a huge amount of research, inventiveness and dedication. This has resulted in exceptional and unique technical solutions that tell a story in an new and compelling way.
Point of View: The obsession with getting ever closer.
What is it like to lay down with lions? How would it feel to swim with dolphins? Or fly like an eagle? John Downer’s award winning films are driven by his personal desire to break into the world of animals and capture moments from unique points of view. Through the use of immersive filmmaking techniques, like spy cameras, John Downer and his team bring the viewer up close and personal with the animals he portrays and reveals the world and lives of them as never seen before. Capturing the animal’s perspective adds a moving emotional level to the stories and leads this wildlife footage away from the observant spectator to a powerful captivating experience.
