The First in a series of short films, aiming to give viewers an intimate view of wild habitats across the U.K, without the use of narration or a definitive plot, allowing viewers to take what they want from the footage, illustrating as closely as possible what it is like to explore the habitat first hand.
The next film will be shot on the Exe estuary in Devon, and will play host to an entirely different cast of wildlife & habitats.
The film was shot in September 2013 in Argyll forest park. All footage was shot in raw on the 50D and 5D mkii — using the magic lantern hack.
Footage was debayered using AE to Prores 444, edited in PrPro & exported. Audio is a mixture of foley sound and audio recorded in camera.
