SUPPLEMENTS ONE AND TWO briefly introduce Tamborine Mountain, feature species not previously filmed and extend the coverage of flora and fauna that are under-represented in Archive Parts One to Five. Contents have been selected from over seven hours of footage. Supplement One: Filmed April/May 2007 – 59 mins. Supplement Two: Filmed June/July 2007 – 55 minutes.
SUPPLEMENT THREE An interview with Professor Darryl Jones addressing biodiversity – the subject of the entire archive – in terms of basic science and the particular circumstances of Tamborine Mountain and South East Queensland, including the threat posed by global warming. Filmed 2008 – 59 minutes.
SUPPLEMENTS FOUR TO SIX are on 3 DVDs with a total running time of just over 3 hours and are devoted to the fauna of the rainforest at night. They feature interviews with each member of the 3 man crew. The footage is the result of 53 night shoots over a three and a half year period up to May 2011 and reflect the fact that biodiversity is a 24/7 proposition. The season coincides with the warmer months of the year when the fauna are more active. This is otherwise unobtainable footage, including moments that would have been invisible in daylight.
Filmed with a CANON XL1 CCC video camera with a 16x optical zoom lens on a Miller fluid-head tripod.
From April 2007 all footage was filmed in High Definition using a Sony HVRV1P camera with a 20x optical zoom lens.
Sound was recorded using the microphone on the camera.
