Make friends with wildlife on the
Controversy over the discovery of the Falklands and colonisation by Europeans is always a hot topic amongst locals.
However, these sub-Antarctic islands also draw much attention from the birds and wildlife that stop there annually to breed before travelling on to other places.
The Australis team created an incredibly welcoming home during our filming shoot. With an extensive knowledge of the area Ben was able to put the boat into highly challenging areas allowing us incredible access to film remote locations. The Australis team also have a broad knowledge of working with a variety of film crews and kit so always were accommodating to what was needed for the shoot. The meals on board were some of the best Iv had on any shoot. Exactly what you need after a long day filming outside.
The crew was very resourceful and always worked to accomplish the goals of the film production and the Australis is an incredible work boat. It’s comfortable yet capable of handling diving, topside filming and drone work at the same time. It was one of the best live-aboard shoots I’ve been apart of and that’s all thanks to the Australis, Ben and it’s crew. Thanks for the amazing adventure to Antarctica!
There are lots of ways to see Antarctica, if you want to experience Antarctica – the Australis is the dream maker. Thank you, Ben, for providing “The Trip” I will think about for the rest of my life.
Thank you again for the opportunity of letting us collect this data and we will keep you abreast of how it all does.
