As you know, I’m fortunate enough to be sister to the amazing wildlife film-maker Lisa Marley. I’ve written about her documentary on Scottish raptor poisonings here previously (and incidentally, this work is currently touring the film festivals – scroll to the end for details!). But in June, we actually worked together on a short film project as part of the Aquatic Noise 2016 conference I attended in Dublin.
The conference held a public evening involving short lectures around the theme of underwater noise, and also invited submission of videos on this topic. Lisa and I worked together to create a short film describing the effects of human noise on coastal dolphins, similar to the idea of my 3MT speech – but with much cooler visuals than just me standing on a stage!
I wonder if anyone recognises the locations involved in this production? Suggestions on a postcard please…!
So now I have a professional video to highlight my research AND had the awesome experience of working on a creative project with my sister. And all without a single sibling squabble to be seen!
