Filmmaker Lance Milbrand — who spoke with us on November 21st, 2013, has some pretty amazing footage: newts paddling through a stream, hanging from twigs, laying eggs, newt eggs hatching. Some of this is in some part due to the amazing technology we have on hand to film, but to a larger degree it comes from Lance’s patience and persistence — laying still in a cold stream in a dry suit, camera at the ready, working to get the shot he wanted.

He showed three films that night — one about a recent trip to yellowstone, with bears, rutting elks (the more dangerous beast), a hunting coyote, and a beautiful landscape; two films about newts — a children’s music video (see end of post) and a portion of a longer piece about the newt lifecycle.

The patience and persistence doesn’t necessarily end at the camera — there’s is also editing, and of course distribution. We hope that Lance finds a way to finish this great little educational film about these strange little creatures, our neighbors here in the San Francisco Bay area.
