"A guided tour of the world through the eyes of birds."
For his award-winning "In-Flight Movie," filmmaker John Downer devised a 61/2-ounce camera that could be carried by a trained buzzard. "Eagle" followed, for which Downer used a smaller video camera with an onboard transmitter to film a raptor's flight over the Alps. "Supernatural" continued the pioneering work, using a flock of greylag geese. Flock leader Buff was trained to carry a harness holding an even tinier camera, the "Goosecam," which captured amazing views from inside the flock.
"EarthFlight," Downer's latest film project, is a six-part series. It uses spycams, microlights, hang-gliders, miniature helicopters and wirecams to give viewers a privileged perspective of birds in flight. Whether soaring 10,000 feet high over the Sahara or skimming yards over the Great Wall of China, "EarthFlight" the film allows viewers to take part in the miracle of flight.
Every page shows us what the birds see--winding shorelines, bustling cities, sunsets and storms, mountains, canyons and roiling seas--and the animals they encounter: pelicans diving for fish, a tiger drinking from a stream, migrating reindeer, dolphins playing, and in the desolation of the desert, a nomadic family. The book closes with a "Making of" chapter.
"EarthFlight" truly is a bird's eye view, a pioneering work of genius and a memorable journey around the world like no other.
