Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant

Special documentary by Mike Birkhead Associates, following the fallout of the death of the most famous elephant in the world.  The cruelest drought in living memory is devastating Echo’s home under the shadow of Kilimanjaro. The wise old matriarch has guided her family for half a century, and her 38–strong band of relatives and descendants struggle to overcome the loss of their leader, hunger, and poachers.

We completed the full post production on this project, from Offline through to Online, Grade and Sound Mix in HD and 5.1 surround.  We also provided all of the frame rate conversions from the Varicam to a 25fps project.
