Internationally Acclaimed Wildlife Film Makers Join One Ocean Expeditions To The Antarctic And Canadian Arctic

March 1, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Award-winning wildlife film makers, Karen Bass and Neil Nightingale, will be joining One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) on three of its forthcoming small ship adventure cruises, to offer expert advice and personalized workshops for passengers wishing to enhance their holiday videos.

Karen Bass, who has travelled the world for over 30 years, producing and directing films and television series for both the BBC and National Geographic, will give talks, master classes and offer advice throughout the voyage, helping guests to create their own lasting souvenir of an amazing polar experience.

Award-winning wildlife filmmaker and zoologist, Neil Nightingale, will also be on board.  Neil has travelled and worked in many of the wildest corners of our planet and, through his films and television programs, has shared his passion for the natural world with millions of people around the globe.

Guests can travel alongside Karen and Neil on three departures, ‘Falkland Islands, South Georgia & Antarctica’ (18 October to 6 November 2017), ‘Canada’s East Coast Fins & Fiddles’ (14 to 24 July 2018) and ‘Labrador & Torngat Explorer’ (24 July to 3 August 2018).

Commenting on the former, Karen says: “The vast wildlife colonies amongst the icy, mountainous scenery of South Georgia and Antarctica are some of the most breathtaking spectacles and inspiring landscapes I’ve ever seen.  So this voyage is a wonderful opportunity for photography of all types, in stunning wilderness”.

In addition to offering small group workshops designed to cater for complete novices, as well as those looking to improve their film making skills, the two natural history experts will spend quality time with guests over meals, at the bar, on zodiac journeys and on shore landings.

Passengers will learn the art of visual story telling through shooting and editing advice, top tips and techniques, combined with guidance on how to use sound and music to enhance the emotion of the film.  For those not interested in creating their own video, there will be numerous interesting presentations about life behind the scenes in the natural history world, with plenty of anecdotal stories about wildlife filmmaking in almost every environment on earth.

Among the photographic highlights of the October departure to Antarctica are the vast king penguin colonies of South Georgia, the dramatic beach scenes as elephant seals fight for territory and females, and the ever-changing weather, providing wonderfully atmospheric sea and landscapes.

Prices for the 19-night Falkland Islands, South Georgia & Antarctica itinerary start from US$13,695, while the 10-night Canada’s East Coast Fins & Fiddles start from $3,395 and Labrador & Torngat Explorer from US$3,695.  Early booking incentives, including flight offers, are available for bookings made prior to 31 May 2017. Previous OOE guests not only receive a 10% discount on these prices when they re-book, but also have a choice of other benefits with the ONE CLUB loyalty program.  These include cabin upgrades or flight discounts, private transfers, travel credits or a night’s complimentary hotel accommodation, a bar credit on board, a welcome basket or a ONE CLUB jacket.
