We have been working with the film and TV industry for over 20 years, working on factual wildlife documentaries, commercials and movies. Based in stunning Far North Queensland, Australia, we work with crews from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia. We provide a range of services including live invertebrate sourcing and provision, specialised set building, expert animal wrangling and shooting macro video, time-lapse and stills. We ensure you get the best value for your time and make every shot count.
With years of experience providing live insects, spiders and other invertebrates for use in film and TV productions, we take pride in our ethical approach and ability to enable natural behaviours of these animals to be captured on camera. If you need bugs for film or TV, you’ve come to the right place.
work with us
We have extensive experience working with production companies and crews from around the world and have hosted crews from high-end productions including the BBC, Disney, Plimsoll, National Geographic. We take a great deal of pride in our work and ensure that crews get great value from their time with us.
We spend considerable time pre-shoot in consultation and can provide valuable content advice and invertebrate species selection, particularly when the programs are seeking particular behaviours to build fascinating sequences and stories. We can suggest the best seasons to capture particular behaviours, and when particular Australian invertebrate species will be available. We can also provide vision we shoot ourselves for pick-ups, and since we are always surrounded by these animals we can capture behaviour that is unpredictable in its timing in up to 8K resolution.
Acquiring insects, spiders and other Australian invertebrates for use in advertising can be daunting and challenging for production teams that don’t work with these animals on a regular basis. We can provide the animals and expert wranglers, and more importantly can help you with your selection of the species which will be best for your production.
