This piece was produced for a museum exhibit at Rice World, on the campus of the International Rice Research Institute (© IRRI) in Los Baños, Laguna, Philippines. The idea was to both set a mood for visitors going into the photo exhibit, as well as touch upon the science, conservation issues, and passions surrounding birds.
The exhibit ran May - November 2013 and was called "Feathers in the Field | The Birds of IRRI"
It featured the photographs of Tirso Paris and Fred Serrano. The educational component - which was designed to clarify the facts and myths regarding birds in Asian rice fields - was designed by Paul Bourdin, Richard Smedley, and Paul Hilario.
Writing, interviewing, filming, and post-production done by Michael Joyce.
