BBC: Mexico – Pallid Bats & Behind the Scenes

BBC: Mexico

Natural History TV Series

For the BBC’s series “Mexico: Earth’s Festival of Life” I was hired to help film the Pallid Bats hunting scorpions in infrared.  Having filmed these bats before for a Nat Geo / Smithsonian program, my expertise was utilized to help DP Luke Barnett with set construction, as well as document it all for the behind the scenes segment.
