Secrets of Wild India
The three Wild India films are going out on National Geographic at the moment.
My part in them was 6 weeks of shooting across 3 films...this in the hottest months in India. Heat aside, the shoot was idyllic. Me and director Duncan Chard moved across the films three key landscapes shooting anything that we found beautiful or haunting... animals, insects, flowers, time-lapse and crane shots. The unrelenting work of the Indian cinematographers Sandesh and Sara was fantastic. It's a privilege to be in their company. Meeting Sir David Attenborough (who voiced the films) was momentous, having grown up watching his work.
And here's my colourful mention in Harry Marshall's (The head of Icon Films) blog:
"There was also Brendan McGinty, that rare beast – a cameraman equally comfortable shooting wildlife on a long lens as he is filming a fashion event on the catwalk. His job was to bring the fresher more contemporary feel which National Geographic Wild had asked us to brand the series."

Very proud to have been a part of these films.
