The Ground-Hornbill's critical walk to freedom  


This new service was borne from various requests made by successful bird breeders wanting to promote, or simply capture as a family legacy, their impressive breeding facilities in a professional manner. Like a wedding video you have your own PRIVATE COLLECTION DVD / video made of your own special collection of exotic birds or bird farm.

Each DVD production takes approximately 6 to 12 months to make. Costs include: Research, Scriptwriting, Filming, Lighting, Editing, Voice narration, Packaging and Music design. Costs are determined according to the scale, country, locality and complexity of the film and editing work required.

Eelco Meyjes, who is the filmmaker, spent 30 years in the advertising industry working in senior management positions for some of the world's leading Advertising agencies .
