Production on EveryDay Earth continues to keep us busy. With "Mission 1" pretty much completed (barring peer review and any revisions we might need,) we've moved our focus to "Mission 2." That means it's time to get back out in the field and shoot some footage. Since Mission 2 continues with the Water Cycle we headed out to the New Orleans area.
old GeoAmerica segment about the Mississippi Delta. Of course, those were the SD days. Now that we're HD/4K fancy-pants big shots, we frequently find ourselves re-shooting locations we've visited before. But that's not a bad thing since we've been at this a while and people, places and things tend to change over time.
Louisiana Barrier Islands. We chartered a boat with local guide Richie Blink of Delta Discovery Tours who was a great resource. Unlike some of the showier guides around, Blink has spent years studying the science of the area and really helped us get the shots we needed.
Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours. It was a great chance for us to get some wetlands footage and there were plenty of gators, turtles and other critters that we could get shots of in their natural habitat. Thanks to the tour company for letting us hop aboard.
The overall shoot was exhausting but we ending up getting a lot of great shots and eat a ton of great food. You can check it all out (except maybe the food) in Mission 2 of EveryDay Earth...coming soon!
