Pigeon-cam!
A US director travelled to New Zealand to document how pigeons navigate as part of an episode about animal navigation. We modified and fitted a very small HD camera system originally designed for the CIA, to attach to pigeons and interviewed some NZ biologists studying migration trends. NOVA is the highest rated science series on USA television and the most watched documentary series on public TV there. Our client was Little Bay Pictures.
