Monterey, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2007
Monterey, CA. August 9, 2007 -- Footage Search, Inc. (http://www.Footagesearch.com) is excited to announce the extraordinary High-Definition (HD) footage from the critically acclaimed program "A Year on Earth," from Bahati Productions, available exclusively at NatureFootage (http://www.NatureFootage.com). NatureFootage also exclusively represents all other footage from Bahati, in a superb HD collection of global natural history footage.
The Bahati footage comes to NatureFootage from acclaimed wildlife filmmakers John Heminway and Katie Carpenter, whose images have garnered more than a dozen Emmy(R) Awards, plus Peabody, Cine Golden Eagles, Cable Ace awards, and others. Bahati's "A Year on Earth" follows the adventures of three American teens who travel the world for one year, visiting five continents, documenting wildlife, and working with scientists on a mission to save the planet by gathering evidence of global warming, deforestation, coral reef degradation, endangered species, and more. The collection includes endangered wildlife and habitats, low-flying aerials and high-impact scenes in stunning locations, from Botswana's Okavango Delta to Sri Lanka, as well as Kenya, Brazil, Costa Rica, the Bahamas, Thailand, Malaysia and North America.
"We were incredibly fortunate to be able to film in so many rare and beautiful places whose truly wild days may be numbered," comments Producer/Director Katie Carpenter. "These pieces of paradise are disappearing so quickly. Our hope is that our footage will inspire people around the world to support scientists in their quests to save them."
"With its exotic international destinations, cultures, wildlife, and ecosystems, the "Year on Earth" footage is a perfect fit for NatureFootage," says NatureFootage founder Dan Baron.
The collection also includes grim footage of devastating deforestation, highly endangered ecosystems, and a host of environmental hazards. Animal footage includes crocodile-wrangling, sea turtles, bears, bats, wildebeest stampedes, giant anteaters, and rhinos, as well as rare clips of giant otters in Brazil. Despite the filming challenges posed by sand, torrential rain, humidity, salt, dust, and heat, the experience was one to treasure. "When you have the time to wait patiently in the midst of wildlife in their natural environment, it is truly remarkable what can unfold before your camera," comments Bob Poole, Director of Photography on the project.
