This all began with an urge to film the biggest fish in the ocean…at night.
I shot the interview with Abdul back in 2016 with Michael Fletcher whilst on a Cenderewasih Bay trip with True North. After cutting the interview I decided to make the arduous journey back to the Bagans. I then spent three days capturing the b-roll that was required to tell this short story.
Travelling to that remote part of West Papua and working with the locals was an incredibly humbling experience. I would repeat it again in a heart beat.
