NZ TV Premiere: Unearthed 2

Animal Planet – Tuesdays from 6 May, 9.30pm

Animal Planet International invited potential wildlife film-makers from around the world to audition for Unearthed 2, an intensive wildlife filmmaking course. Four lucky people from as far a field as India and New Zealand were chosen to fly to Shamwari in South Africa to begin their training as wildlife filmmakers under the guidance of experts, Andrew Baron and Australian zoologist, documentarian and television presenter, Lyndal Davies. New Zealand contestant, Sebastian van der Zwan said of being one of the chosen four, “I haven’t been this excited since the Spice Girls announced their reunion”. At the end of the training each contestant produces their own short film, within the Reserve, on a topic of their choice. These films are then reviewed by a panel of judges and presented at a gala dinner held at the Reserve where the Unearthed Filmmaker of the Year is announced.
