Take a Visual Rainforest Journey
‘Rainforest Journey’ – a film by Martin Stringer – takes you on a visual journey into the Daintree Rainforest, Australia’s largest and most biodiverse and the world’s longest continuously living and evolving rainforest.
Having been selected by Port Shorts Film Festival, the film is primarily focused around Lot 18 Cape Kimberley, a pristine rainforest block that Rainforest Rescue and its supporters protected forever last year in 2021.
The video was instrumental in the campaign for Lot 18 and has been re-edited and extended with more aerial footage filmed this year.
As a short film, this aerial footage and the great work that Rainforest Rescue is achieving have now been showcased to lovers of short films.
Thanks to the well-developed rainforest understory, Martin could fly his drone within the rainforest canopy and capture the rainforest between 10 and 20 meters above the ground and get to see closeups of epiphytes and the canopy which we don’t usually get to see. Martin visited this beautiful rainforest over 20 times to capture it in different conditions and ever-changing light.
‘Rainforest Journey’ premiered in Port Douglas last Saturday, October 15 in the beautiful outdoor cinema with the ocean and Daintree Rainforest in the background.
The night was a great success, the crowd loved your film
