Most people know Kew Gardens as home of the world's largest living plant collection but are not aware that it is also the location of an internationally important botanical research and educational institution. Going beyond the gardens as we know them, Lonelyleap produced two films for 2012's Tropical Extravaganza Festival which showcase the behind the scenes work of Kew's scientists whilst also exploring two of the festival's themes, Earth and Air.
The first in the series explores the importance of fungi to all plants and ultimately all life on Earth through several members of the Mycology Department committed to the conservation and exploration of fungi.
Fear of the unknown has haunted Captain Tyler Bradt from an early age. Holding the world record for the highest waterfall ever run in a kayak (189.5 foot Palouse Falls), Tyler now sets off on an entirely new adventure - to explore our planet and to confront his fears.
With a 45-foot, 20-ton steel hull boat built for the world’s most demanding environments, he and his wild demographic of friends, extreme sport professionals, and others met along the way will circumnavigate the planet searching out and living the most off-the-wall experiences and extreme stunts.
