I first met Bob Poole in South Africa while covering the 2003 Global Extremes series for the Outdoor Life Network. A great guy and a great cinematographer, he regaled us during the trip with his stories of growing up in Kenya and pursuing a life of shooting the highest-end wildlife documentaries.
I had the opportunity to work with Bob again last year covering a First Ascent expedition and shoot in Ecuador, where he told me stories from his latest work, National Geographic's Great Migrations.
According to the website, Great Migrations "is a seven-part global television event that takes viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species. Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff-blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells the formidable, powerful stories of many of the planet's species and their movements, while revealing new scientific discoveries with breathtaking high-definition clarity."
Check out the trailer below, and I think you'll see that they're not exaggerating. So, tune into National Geographic on November 7 and watch the world's animals "move as millions and survive as one".
