Arizona PBS science television show Catalyst started their second season with great stories on autism, wildlife migration corridors, acoustic ecology lab, and more.
The story on wildlife migration corridors took our team down to the Mexican state of Sonora, just south of the US/Mexico border, to document a team of ASU researchers gathering data for their study of the effects of highways, border fences, and livestock on migration patterns of animals from javelinas to jaguars.
The shoot was grueling, tramping through riparian areas of dense undergrowth, huge spiders and webs, streams, fences, and heat.
My part was to haul tons of gear, hold up boom mics, set up and break down, as well as second camera person.
Producer Craig Johnson and Editor Grace Clark worked a great story, and the experience was fantastic.
