the crew behind tracks across africa
Thanks for the warm welcome on my first post , glad to be here ..
Many people referenced that they enjoy our TV shows , let me take a moment to just say , they are not at all MY TV shows , I am merely the guy in front of the camera , but behind the camera, behind the editing desk you will find a team of incredibly dedicated artists in their fields ,these are the people who deserve the main credit
Our camera crew deserves the most credit , these guys are supposed to stand still , film steady and make sure that the light , white balance and every other setting on their cameras is perfect as the world in front of them is dissolving into a mixture of dust , snot and lead !!! these men , some of whom I have worked with for close on 20 years are the people who are the real heroes in the field ..
People often ask who our cameramen are ..here they are ..
Andy macdonald in his fourth year with us keen , ambitious and highly competent ?here is nothing andy wont do ..
Doug king , going into his 6th year with us doug is one of the most exceptional artists you will ever come across behind the camera , not only does he have an incredible eye , his ability to edit and show the unique angle is amazing
Simon Elton who has worked with me for almost 20 years ! we have faced and done a lot together ,from getting lost in the mountans to diving for crocs uncannily steady in the midst of everything he is a man who you want by your side when you get in a jam
Renz Palermo , just 4 years ago got thrown into the deep end , on his first hunt supposed to be observing only , the lead cameraman twisted his knee and on renz first ever day filming a hunt we had a young cow charge that I had to kill ?t just three yards ?oday he is rock steady and a tremendous asset to the team ..
This season we have two new guys on the crew , Ted Miller from the states who is doing a lot of our 蜉ｪorld filming for us as well as some Africa and Doug Greaves , who has been in the industry a while but this is his first season with us ..
Then behind the scenes we have Christy Funke who runs the editing office , what a talented girl she is , and what she can do with a computer is amazing here she is hard at work doing studio stuff with me
and heres a link to a youtube clip that she put together for the 2012 season of tracks across Africa , I think itsｴ a great look into what the combined talent of our crew can produce from the intense front line to the artistic to the studio and cutting
Tyler hill , in his past life a combat cameraman in the marine corps edits one of our shows ?ery talented and a guy who has also spent many years in a kind of hunting scenario I hope most of us never get to see !! here he is with an elk that I took in wyoming ...
Enjoy people and thanks for the opportunity to introduce our team of incredible people ...
