My first wildlife documentary.

 

During 2017 and 2018, and with a passion for wildlife, a degree in Zoology and a love of photography and film-making I decided to photograph and film the deer of Richmond Park, my eventual aim to create my very first wildlife film documentary.

 

I soon became addicted and went to the park every week for a year. I filmed in the dead of winter and at the height of summer. The park was magical .

 

On cold March mornings, just before dawn, the deer,  enveloped by frozen mist and gently falling snow, appeared majestic and mysterious. Completely alone in the park, it was not difficult to contemplate the power and beauty of the natural world.

 

At this time I didn't have my own camera but borrowed a motley collection from family and friends. I recorded hundreds of shots and then, after a period of intense learning, care of YouTube and my talented brother, I created the film. I performed almost every task myself from researching, storyboarding and script-writing to shooting, sound recording, editing, adding the music and sound effects and overlaying my own narration.

 

Many thanks to:

 

Twickenham Film Studios for help with colour grading and for hosting my preview event.
