Behind The Scene: On The Brink

A wildlife series written, directed, shot and anchored by complete female crew; shot on Canon CINEMA EOS C700 and ME-20FSH

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

On the Brink is an unprecedented portrait of India’s natural world that explores species and habitats rarely seen on Indian television. Explorer Malaika Vaz journeys through the sub-continent, immersing herself in the most incredible landscapes and habitats in the country and coming eye to eye with the rarely spotted animals that live here. How is wild India surviving in the 21st century? Grassroots conservationists unravel mysteries of the natural world and help us understand why species that once lived in large populations, are now literally On the Brink.

The season one is currently on air on Animal Planet India and Discovery Channel India.
