'The Wait' | Documentary Short 


This short documentary follows young wildlife photographer, Michel D'Oultremont, from his hometown in Belgium to the Carpathian Mountains in Romania on the trail of wild bison.

After discovering Michel's work at an exhibition in London, director David Hayes and I got in touch with him to pitch the idea of a short documentary about his work and process.

After successfully securing funding through a London based production company (Contra Agency) we managed to get the WWF on board with the project.

The shoot was both challenging and exciting - with temperatures below zero and epic walks through Transylvania to catch a glimpse of the wild animals. If you want to know more about the shoot and the creative process that went into it, I highly recommend having a read through this article

The film is scheduled to be presented at festivals around Europe in the coming months.

All the latest news about the film will be updated on The Wait's official website
