Congratulations....amazing footage. I note that the full meal deal is 71 minutes my God my man the number of hours spent to capture that volume of footage must have been out of this world.

Good luck I have my fingers crossed that the awards come rolling in.

We shot over one hundred and eighty hours of footage.
Someone was at Wildwing Lake at dawn every nice morning with our XL1
from late March to the middle of October.
Then it took my partner, Christi Vedejs, a year to research and
write the script and another nine months to edit it together.
The sound track took more months including several
field trips to collect audio and still many other narration and musical
recording sessions. Then we had the graphics, still photo pans & scans
and other animations. We worked from before dawn to after midnight
many, many days.

If you don't love it, . . . get out! Get out now!!! :)

is that your acceptance speech? it's perfect as it is, don't change a thing!

honestly, it's an inspiring story of what persistence and obsession can accomplish. not just for you, but for those birds and for the planet.

What a video!

Enjoyed "Osprey" very much, Jacques & Christi & all concerned. Great ad for wildlife conservation, wildlife videography and Kensington Metropark, Michigan.

Thinking Irish Wildbird Conservancy and Santa Claus I'm ordering a few more copies.

Congratulations from me too! I have to get a copy of this video to my library. Very inspiring that a film about ospreys could get this award

Wow! I have been off the boards for about 7 months and have just spent the last two weeks catching up. I found this thread today (in my favorite DVInfo forum) and was blown away.

Congratulations, Jacques and Christi!

From a close neighbor in South Bend, Indiana.

Meryem:

Thanks for the welcome back! I think I saw Hugh Dimauro lurking in my neighborhood last week.

So I don't hijack Jacques' thread, I'll try to be short--at least my post will be, but I'm 6 feet. Much of my absence had to do with a little (read big) medical scare last year. I'm doing fine now.

But, my wife and I have been on some adventures and are up to no good as always. We spent time in the Cayman Islands working on a sea turtle nesting project. Watching (videoing) baby sea turtles emerging from the sand is an amazing and fulfilling experience. We spent more time in the rainforests of Panama shooting hawk migration last fall. I spent the first 5 months of 2006 learning about producing and encoding good quality video podcasts. Finally, I'm advancing my 3d modeling and animation skills.

Why all this? We are working on creating an Internet-only wildlife television station and community. A place were people can post their own wildlife shows and series and share their experiences. I'll post somewhere else on this later when the time is right.

By the way, I continue to explore my non-nature focused creative, movie making side. Next week, our team that produced the two Thomas Brin movie shorts for DVC2 & 3 are continuing the Brin story. It will be posted within 8 weeks. I do look forward to another DVC attempt or two.

Now, back to Jacques and his wonderful news. I apologize for not being short after all.

you were pretty much living my dream, to watch baby sea turtles hatch...very cool, the things you've been doing, minus the health issue.

and now back to our regularly scheduled program of being in awe of what jacques has achieved....thanks for letting us borrow your thread temporarily.
