Netflix, Disney+, Nat Geo Docuseries

During the pandemic, I had the pleasure of working on several episodes of OUR LIVING WORLD, a groundbreaking 2024 Netflix Originals nature series narrated by Cate Blanchett filmed worldwide over the course of 4 years, featuring award-winning cinematography my team and I captured of gopher tortoises and rattlesnakes living in harmony underground and first-of-their-kind tracking sequences of endangered one-horned rhinos sauntering through a Nepali town (which kicks off both the series and its trailer).

From the Netflix press release: “Traveling from Angola to New Zealand and dozens of countries in between, filmmakers, wildlife photographers, and scientists come together to depict the wondrous tapestry of creatures and ecosystems that sustain Earth’s existence — and that are are under serious threat due to human activity.”

With a crew of as little as three of us at times, I’d juggle roles as (credited) field producer and DIT, and (uncredited) gaffer, grip, camera assistant, video editor, assistant director and Swiss Army knife everything-person – at the beck and call of biologists and conservationists tracking animal behavior that tells stories of our fragile ecosystem. 

I also worked on separate Disney+ and a Nat Geo series featuring stunning macro photography of Brood X “zombie” cicadas that emerge once every 17 years, along with high-speed Phantom photography of chipmunks in kung-fu-like battles. 

All were shot by my close friend and collaborator, adventure documentary cinematographer Mark Ó Fearghaíl, with whom I also teamed up with on an official Tribeca Film Festival documentary selection about the Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu’s friendship, co-directed by the Oscar-winning director of THE COVE.
