Blue Zoo has been described as, “the ultimate marine wildlife adventure documentary series” and when chatting with the DOP, Dean Cropp from the show’s production company Air Pig Productions, it’s not hard to see why. The show, shot entirely with Sony PMW-200 and PMW-300 cameras, is an empowering 13-part observational documentary that follows eight young Australian and Irish marine animal enthusiasts aged 14-16 as they embark on an intense 6-week training mission to become dolphin and seal experts and have the adventure of a lifetime.
Cropp explained, “Blue Zoo was a very unique production and as such our choice of equipment, particularly the cameras we were going to use, was crucial.
