spy creatures

Super interesting little doc about shooting docs with spy creatures. The BBC does another fantastic job, and Highsnobiety does a great job covering the story.

I love the use of tech to discretely tell a story, or in this case, to document animal behavior. It reminded me a lot of when I use drones in filmmaking, the types of movements you want to create are natural, but you strive to be able to give an unusual perspective to the audience. Many times that means starting low and going high, or flying through an object or window in a natural way so that while you think you are watching a shot you’ve seen hundreds of times before, you soon realize that this is something wholly different.
