While the appeal of nature is timeless, promoting nature-based tourism has never been as relevant as in the post-pandemic times.

Not only untouched but thriving ever since COVID 19 interrupted humans in their activities, nature embodies everything travelers crave right now!

  • Expansive landscapes that let us freely roam.

  • A safe place away from crowds and the uninterrupted flow of distressing news.

  • Fresh air infused with the aroma of trees, bushes, and herbs with powerful healing properties. 

  • A life-affirming habitat that teems with families of playful monkeys,  birds that chirp their cheerful songs and prehistoric reptiles that walk our earth for thousands of years - defying droughts, bushfires, floods and whatever other disasters struck over time.

Taking the traveler on a poetic discovery journey through the most fascinating Geoparks and nature reserves of Southeast Asia, my nature films captivate with intimate wildlife shots and an immersive soundscape that paints with emotive music, 3D ambient recordings and amplified location sounds a multi-dimensional sense of place.  Long takes and deliberate pacing induce a sense of deep calm and harmony - inspiring love for slow travel and the desire to experience the natural wonders of your region firsthand.

WONDERS OF THE KINABATANGAN RIVER / BORNEO, MALAYSIA

A river winding its way through 130 million years old rainforest, opening up into serene oxbow lakes and branching off into secret channels concealed by dense foliage . . . Following the path of an Egret, a small fisherman boat embarks on a discovery journey of the Kinabatangan River, filled with fascinating encounters with pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, exotic birds, crocodiles and orangutans.

With the boatman remaining invisible throughout the entire film, the viewer is given the space to imagine himself in his place, which lends the production a highly suggestive power of firsthand experience. 

MAGIC OF THE KILIM GEOFOREST PARK / LANGKAWI, MALAYSIA

A river flanked by giant limestone formations, hidden lagoons anxiously guarded by white-bellied sea eagles and brahminy kites, dense mangrove forests that teem with prehistoric reptiles, macaque monkeys and venomous snakes, mysterious caves with stalagmites and stalactites echoing the sounds of bats as they get ready for their nightly hunt . . .

 

Shot in a documentary style, with a young western traveler and a local boatman exploring Southeast Asia's first UNESCO Geopark without paying attention to the camera, the film harnesses the power of authentic moments and emotions triggered by the fascinating wildlife encounters they experience.
