Television & Film Work
We have worked on almost 200 filming projects since 1995, ranging from natural history documentaries to feature films, working with both small and large budgets, and both little and big expectations. Adam Britton has an international reputation in this area, and he brings this wealth of experience to Big Gecko to provide flexible and free-thinking solutions to obtain the footage you require. We have also forged strong links with many valuable partners throughout northern Australia, and we have access to many unique resources.
We can provide advice and direct support on what to film, where to film, and how best to get it. We can provide a variety of suitable wild locations, and we can provide crocodiles in both captive and wild situations if required. We can direct crocodile behaviour for the camera, and we can appear on camera in any capacity from participant to presenter. We can provide vehicles, boats and other kinds of logistical support, and we can provide access to specialised filming facilities for crocodiles and other aquatic wildlife. We can also organise equipment through our local Darwin contacts, book both accommodation and third-party vehicles, and recommend additional support personnel (eg. camera grips, fixers, drivers).
Adam has considerable experience in front of the camera as well, acting as both an onscreen expert and presenter where required. He has enormous passion and enthusiasm for crocodiles, and loves communicating this to a wider audience at any level; he's worked on delivering accurate science and natural history about crocodiles, as well as more fun content for kids and a wide audience.
He's caught both the tiniest and the largest (literally) crocodiles on camera, he's crept up on them in the wild and discussed their biology and behaviour, he's set up and been involved in groundbreaking sequences such as taking tissue samples from wild Nile crocodiles while diving with them, or the first-ever high speed footage of a crocodile galloping, he's advised on the construction of artificial crocodiles for research, and ancient crocodiles for education, and he's also just encouraged everyone to appreciate the wonder of these amazing creatures.
