1. Journey deep into the heart of the Florida Everglades where there is a Magic Kingdom seldom seen. It is the home of the Great Gator...an enormous reptile that is rarely seen by humans. Listen for the drumbeats and enter his kingdom. View full screen and crank up those speakers and headphones...

    This short was filmed over the course of 3 days in the Florida Everglades with an approaching tropical storm bringing high winds and heavy rain. That along with a 13 foot alligator (who was very cooperative) made this a very atmospheric shoot. It's what made this short film possible and the next time you see clouds or rain don't let it stop you. You never know what you'll find...it is truly amazing out there so go explore!!

  2. Alligator, iguanas, and other wildlife abound in this short film set to music shot with the Canon HV20. If you like nature/wildlife films check it out! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. If you look closely at 2:17 you'll see an alligator jump out of the water. Favorite shot: Baby alligator swimming around with a dragonfly perched on it's head. The thumbnail above is a digital photo I shot with the HV20 and does not appear in the video. Many of us are so caught up in the hectic everyday pace of our lives that we forget to open our eyes and appreciate the beauty of nature that's happening right before us. Take a few moments every day to stop and look, you'll find it no matter where you are.

  3. Another short clip from "Birth Of A Predator" a documentary film due soon from Gator Creek Films. In this clip a mother alligator defends her nest from a green heron and lunges while still holding babies in her mouth. If you watch closely you'll see her release them into the water. A turtle somehow managed to lay her eggs inside the nest as well.

She takes any unhatched eggs back to the water in her mouth where she will roll them in her mouth to crack them open. Currently filming in Florida and Louisiana.
