“Best Exploration Film” winner at the New York Wild Film Festival

Our short Bird of Paradise film called “Paradise Found”, shot by Tim Laman, Ed Scholes and Eric Liner, and produced/edited by Tom Swartwout won the category “Best Exploration Film”.  It was a real honor and thrill to attend the festival this past weekend in New York City at the famed Explorer’s Club.
