1. Give Frank a Break - The Australian Marine Conservation Society


    from Ben Hodson / Added

    This is a short film starring the very funny Frank Woodley. I produced it for the Australian Marine Conservation Society to encourage people to use less plastic. Because every piece of plastic ever created by us is still on the planet today.

      This is my cinematography showreel from projects I filmed over the summer of 2014. It starts by revealing the quiet yet intriguing wildlife on a small stretch of the River Avon just outside Bath, going on to take you on a journey through the vastly varied wildlife and landscapes of Madagascar. In conclusion it focuses down on a story of marine conservation that I filmed in Andavadoka on the south west coast of the island, following a young fisherman called Avy. I hope you enjoy it!

                Winner of Best Mockumentary at the 2014 Croydon International Film Festival. During 2010 while working in Utila, Honduras my Father and I decided that as there was not much to be seen in the surrounding waters while scuba diving we should make an underwater film. The sea surrounding the Bay Islands of Utila are seriously over fished so we decided to shoot a conservation video with a twist. In this film the cast act as "highly trained underwater organisms" looking after their environment on a typical day. Maybe surprisingly for you this film was shot on a point-and-shoot non HD camera. This film has been included in some European Film Festivals and will be showing at the Croydon International Film Festival on 25th October 2014.

                      200 million sharks are killed per year by people, 550 thousand per day. There are 500 different shark species on our planet, 100 of these species that we know about, are endangered. The other 400 species we don’t know about could well be endangered too. There are many reasons for shark killing: Shark fins, shark meat or cartilage, bycatch in the fishing industry, habitat damage, pollution or just as a trophy. Once the species have reaches extinction, there is no way of bringing them back to our oceans. They will be gone for ever. This is ironical, because sharks predate dinosaurs by 200 million years and people have nearly managed to ban them from earth in just a few decades. Experts assume that many shark species will die out within the next few years. But there is hope. Many countries have banned the shark fin trade. Also many airlines have banned shark fins and shark related products from their flights. But shark killing will go on, as long as there is a market for it.
