Biologist, writer, and cameraman, Darryl has lived and worked in Thailand since 1996. He speaks, reads, and writes Thai.
Darryl has extensive experience of looking for and filming Thai wildlife and most often this involves spending long periods in hides and camping in the forest, which is something he loves.
From Oct 2007 to March 2010 Darryl was a regular contributor to www.earth-touch.com (Wild Touch - SABC2), and some of his work can be viewed in the Thailand section of their website.
Darryl offers a wide range of services to film crews wishing to work in Thailand.
Asian Wildlife Films
Production: Full production service undertaken from initial planning to completed project. Any length project from short promo video to NGO presentation to full length documentary film.
Editing: We can edit your project for you, or our static and mobile edit facilities are available to you to begin the edit process yourself whilst here in Thailand.
Location Scouting: Use my 15 years experience of living and working in Thailand to help suggest best locations and seasons for your shoot.
Staff: We can source local guides, wildlife experts, still photographers, camera crew, drivers etc.
Pre-production: We can undertake many aspects of pre-production, in particular research, to help increase the chances of you getting the footage you need.
Logistics: We can organize transport, accommodation, provisions, hides etc. so that you can concentrate 100% on filming.
Filming Permits and Work Permits: As a Thai based company we can apply for film and work permits on your behalf, cutting the red tape and the costs.
Narration: With a neutral and clear British English accent and 10 years experience as an English teacher, my narrations are often appreciated by audiences for whom English is not a first language. To date I have narrated over 100 short wildlife films and several full length documentaries.
