A pair of male Southern Elephant Seals fighting it out for the right to be master of Freshwater Beach, Bird Island, South Georgia. The loser ended up with a severely damaged nose, while the winner got the chance to mate with all the females on that beach, which this year was one.
King Edward Point's entry for the 2017 Antarctic 48hr Film Festival. Planned, filmed and edited over the weekend 4th to 6th August, it had to include the following elements; a blind bartender, a sausage, the line 'please could you light my fire', the sound of popcorn popping and a karate chop.
The plot follows a disenfranchised set of South Georgia residents being led to believe all their woes are due to faceless Antarctic bureaucrats. Will a shady stranger persuade them to quit the continent? And will it work out well? The answers are yes and no respectively.
This version includes the blooper reel / out-takes.
