Blog Post: Shooting at Bishop Museum (part 1) – February 2017

We did a one-day Bishop Museum shoot interviewing a new character, Marjorie Ziegler, who is the daughter of Dr. Alan C. Ziegler (deceased), who started the lawsuit on behalf of Palila. Marjorie is currently Executive Director of Conservation Council for Hawaii, infusing the film with a more personal, intimate element to the story of the Palila and the court case.

Our contact at Bishop Museum, Vertebrate Collections Manager Molly Hagemann, provided us access to the museum’s collection of Hawaiian birds. We also filmed sequences with the mounted Palila specimen used in the court case and documented extremely rare, mounted extinct Hawaiian birds specimens.
