Turtles wins Gold Awards for Cinematography & Best Feature Documentary

Posted on: November 28th, 2009

Rory McGuinness wins Gold for his stunning photography from the prestigious, Australian Cinematographers Society for his work on Turtle: The Incredible Journey.

The film also winds the President’s Award for Best Feature Documentary at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival. This was a special screening for us as many of the scenes in the film were shot in Florida with the support of the Florida State University, the Gumbo Limbo Nature Reserve, the US Fish and Wildlife Dept.  The film was so popular extra screenings had to be laid on.

“Turtles  was  sold out.  The film was described as beautiful, striking, wonderful, spectacular!” Professor Jeanette Wyneken, Turtle Biologist
