Interactive & Collaborative Expedition Film Making:

Its fair to say that there’s been a few adventures along the way. The gallery below others a snap shot of some but there are many more to share (click the  PIC LENS link for a full screen show); From Tribal encounters in the Amazon through to tracking down cocaine barons in Bolivia with the DEA. From secret forays in Saudi Arabia, Sea Gypsies in Sulawesi, jeopardy in Djibouti ( Somalian pirates), heart stopping moments aboard a soviet jet fighter  in  Russia, the rare honor of filming  Orangutans in the  jungles of Borneo, a magical encounters with tribe  in the mountains of Colombia,  expeditions in Belize, Panama, Vietnam and Kalimantan…  and these just the adventures of the last few years! …. At the heart of it all is my love for a challenging story and the huge potential i see in the application of cutting edge  technology… whether  deploying Remote RC HD Octicopters, Gigiapan, Photosynth, Geo-immersives, QTVR orbs, or dynamic mapping   linked to personal biometrics, there are innumerable ways that current and emerging tools can enrich  investigations, 360 projects and  films.

I have spent the last 15 years exploring the potential of next gen expeditions / adventures, If you would like to know more and have a project in mind. Give me a call. Justin Hall on: +44 (0)7950 104136

About the author

National Geographic correspondent for the 2016, globally distributed, prime-time series of EXPLORER, Justin Hall is an Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaker, broadcaster and journalist. He is also a Fellow of the UK’s Royal Geographical Society, specializing in hi-tech digital storytelling technologies. In the course of reporting on issues across the board from illegal wildlife trade, deforestation, gold mining, cocaine production, child slavery, piracy on the high seas and more, Justin has covered a lot of ground: From helicopter raids on cocaine factories in Bolivia to tracking down arms dealers in Moscow, he’s hitchhiked a ride on a rusty Russian jetfighter and was one of the first to use tech to champion the rights of tribal peoples back in 2000. His passion for environmental, cultural and tribal issues was cultivated through his early work with Academy Award-nominated anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Pierre Dutilleux on the series ‘Tribal Journeys’. An avid storyteller in all its forms, Justin continues to crisscross the globe, with recent investigations taking him to Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Belize, Borneo, Somalia, Colombia, Congo DRC and three visits to Libya. Armed with a smile and nothing but good intentions, Hall is not your standard correspondent.
