Speechless

  1. Yellow-eyed penguins come ashore on a beach full of New Zealand Sea Lions, before making their way into an ancient Rata forest on Enderby Island, part of the Auckland Islands in New Zealand's subantarctic region. Filmed over a couple of hours during a short visit in early summer 2014.

  3. Beautifully filmed by New Zealand nature photographer Richard Sidey over the past decade throughout the Earth’s polar regions, Speechless – The Polar Realm is a non-verbal visual meditation of light, life, loss and wonder at the ends of the globe.

    In search of an individual viewing experience aided by the absence of spoken narrative, Speechless – The Polar Realm guides this cinematic voyage through both powerful imagery of the natural world and a poignant, original score from composer and sound artist, Miriama Young, performed by Mirabai Peart and Ryan Francesconi.

    Listen and buy the soundtrack online – A purchase includes a donation to the Climate Council.

    Speechless Concept:
    I want to share some of these phenomenal remote spots that I'm incredibly lucky to visit on my expeditions and make them feel as real as possible to portray the experience.

    So I've decided that maybe the best way to do this is strip down the video, with raw footage only; No music, no David Attenborough, no fancy editing and no touching up. As it was on the day.

    And maybe, with no one telling you what to think and no music to stir the emotions, maybe it will be quite refreshing, and a lot more real?

    Stay tuned for the feature documentary: Speechless : The Polar Realm
