Since 1990 I have used a Nizzo Super 8mm movie camera, as well as Sony TR850 and PC 330E camcorders to create guerrilla style documentaries as an artists record of some iconic adventures. Professionally produced, these videos are windows into the past and depict a freedom that was available in a different era to those who were happy to take a few risks.
To India for Tigers.
This short documentary shows exactly what looking for tigers from elephant back in India is like, and how the actual sightings slowly unfold. Patience is needed, and nothing about the experience has any similarity to watching wildlife in Africa. Tiger watching is a cultural experience as much as a natural history one. For an artist looking for material for paintings there is no other way to get the material needed to create tiger paintings.
