Shrimp Boat Sights from Birds Eye for Indianapolis Zoo

We captured some fantastic shots of dolphins swimming behind a shrimp boat, and can't wait to show you some footage after it's final release at the Indianapolis Zoo! 

We so grateful for the opportunity to travel, learn, and help educate others on the health of the Gulf of Mexico through the Indianapolis Zoo. Not to mention, we got to fly their drone in such a unique location. This project in particular is working to educate the public about land/farm management, and how the array of mineral and nutrient deposits has effected the health of the Gulf, and consequently, the dolphin population.

Our day started with a 6AM call time, and an unexpectedly stunning sunrise on Grand Isle in Louisiana. At noon, the crew hopped on a shrimp boat and headed out to troll through the Gulf of Mexico after filming wetlands! About 15 wild Dolphins followed the boat for a few hours, grabbing the stray shrimp that slid through the net. Director of Photography (Patrick), Matt, and Danielle made it back to land in time to capture the sun setting behind a long, t-shaped pier.

Shortly after, we met up with the rest of the crew to exchange media. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a warm glow above the horizon as the sun set. Warm yellows and cold blues colored the sky in a phenomenal way!

Another day of capturing incredible footage was over- sunrise to sunset. Although our schedule was tight, off to Bourbon Street in New Orleans we went!

Birds Eye duo ate at Le Bayou, and ordered a classic mix of traditional plates. "Taste Of The Bayou" included Chicken & Andouille Gumbo, Crawfish Etoufee, Red Beans, and Cajun Jambalaya! Shrimp Ya-Ya (shrimp with a cajun pesto) and alligator bites were also sampled.
