Specialty Camera: Remote camera traps
For: BBC "Planet Earth II"
Info: I have extensive experience with remote trail cams and camera traps. For Planet Earth II, Nick Guy (camera trap builder extraordinaire), Darren West, and myself deployed DSLR traps at grizzly bear "rub" trees in Alberta, Canada. The majority of the sequence footage comes from the few weeks we were there deploying traps at multiple locations, although the traps were left for months and a volunteer crew from Alberta Parks regularly checked and replaced batteries. I am quite proud we were able to develop a sequence using only fixed camera trap angles (hilarious bears helped of course!). I also own a 4k Sony A7sii camera trap for high quality footage needs.
