Filming on Wadden Isles with biologist Midas Dekkers for Dutch TV series
Production company De Haaien is creating a six part TV series about the Dutch Wadden Isles and their inhabitants. The Wadden Sea with its tidal flats is a hugely important and unique ecosystem which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage area.
I am involved as a cameraman filming some of the series' presenter elements with biologist Midas Dekkers. During my childhood, Dekkers was a hero of mine and I read and reread many of his books on animal and human behaviour. It is a great privilege to now be working with him on the current TV series which will air on Dutch television (Omroep MAX) from April 2018.
