‘Flyways’ documentary, theatrical release.


Flyways tells the story of  migratory shorebirds that fly thousands of killometers every year. I shot the foley and edited dialogue for this documentary feature. The birds are naturally skittish so a lot of the actuality footage was shot at great distance and sound had to be replaced. The foley involved lots feathers being flapped, rustling straw/ pecking around in wet sand, mimicking   Also I covered things like Chinese fishermen hauling sacks of shellfish, scientist wading around on mud flats. My studio looked like a bomb site afterwards!

TV versions will be released on ABC iview in Australia, ARTE in France, PBS America and in many other territories. More information is available at the film website Trailer is below.
