Today we hosted Tim Shepherd in preparation for our orchids being filmed for the forthcoming BBC Attenborough plant spectacular – Green Planet.
Tim is a botanist and time lapse film specialist, renowned for his work on David Attenborough’s Private Life of Plants and other great wildlife films.
Our plants will be time lapsed for the Tropical Forests section of Green Planet and today we worked on identifying key groups of orchids to include in filming. Issy represented orchid growing students, and Chloe represented the Mendip Media group, and once school returns the two student groups will work alongside Tim to develop their own understanding of the world of wildlife filming.
We hope to showcase a few great time lapses here for you in the coming months.
