Thanks Miles for the kind words. Ever since Steve Erwin, there's a sort of expectation for cheese on science/natural history TV. I was a little apprehensive about how that show would come off, but I was pretty happy with it. Katy Walter, the curly headed methane scientist is a first rate researcher and her enthusiasm on the show was authentic.
My director/photographer wanted me to flip but my son told me before the trip, "Dad, don't embarrass yourself by swimming!" So I decided to just make it real and stay afloat.
It was a fun show to work on and Justine (she filmed the elephant eating lions in Planet Earth) and Gordy Buchanan are super fun in the field.
