This week has seen me tackle a subject quite in-depth; Biodiversity and Coastal Defences. Martin Coombes is a PhD student based at the University of Exeter at the Tremough Campus. His work has seen him exploring the relationship between engineering design and ecological response. So I have been spending the last couple of days interviewing Martin and his dissertation supervisor Dr. Larissa Naylor (Pictured) in order to make a film documenting his findings. Today we traveled to Porthleven to one of the test sites Martin has been using for his research, all in all the project has taken Martin over three years to complete and the two short documentaries I am producing will highlight some of his findings. This is the second documentary I have made with a one person crew (i.e me!), most of the filming has now been completed bar a few shots, just got to crack on and get editing now!
