David Hannan garners another Emmy Award

September 27, 2011

National Geographic Channel's epic natural history series Great Migrations took the honours in cinematography for a nature program in the 32nd annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards held in New York City.

David Hannan with fellow Australian Clint Hempsall and NGT field producer Nate Scripture filmed a segment about masses of swirling plankton rising from the depths of the sea at night in Papua New Guinea's Milne Bay. David and his company Plankton Productions also arranged support for cinematographer Wade Fairley and crew to film millions of migrating Christmas Island Red Land Crabs on remote islands in the Indian Ocean.

"I just wanted to let all of you all know the good news and to say thank you once again for all your hard work and your brilliance.  You made this three-year journey a true pleasure for me and the team - and last night the world agreed. Many thanks and congratulations to all of you."

said David Hamlin, Senior Producer, Special Projects at National Geographic TV.

National Geographic Channel's Great Migrations is a seven-part global television event that takes viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species. Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff-blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells the formidable, powerful stories of many of the planet's species and their movements, while revealing new scientific discoveries with breathtaking high-definition clarity.
