Dissertation film with Sea Watch

Well my dissertation project is sorted and I am extremely excited!

Tomorrow I shall be packing up my car with all my camera equipment, and heading off on the 4-5 hour journey to New Quay (WALES, not Cornwall!) to spend 6 weeks filming.  I’ll be working with the Sea Watch Foundation (www.seawatchfoundation.org.uk) doing a 30 minute documentary regarding their research project on bottlenose dolphins.  Sea Watch are a marine charity focussing on the research and conservation of cetaceans around the UK.  As well as the bottlenose dolphins, hopefully I’ll also see some grey seals, harbour porpoises, as well as loads of other species of wildlife; depending on where the survey boats go, I may even be able to see some whales!

I can’t even describe how excited I am about this project – It’s such a fantastic opportunity to be able to work with Sea Watch, the subject matter is amazing, the scenery is stunning, and it will hopefully bring me closer to being able to specialize in conservation filmmaking some day!

Keep an eye on my blog to check up on my progress – I’ll be updating it with my adventures regularly (assuming I have the time!)
