I am Lindsay McCrae, a Cameraman who spent 11 months living in Antarctica filming 8,000 Emperor Penguins for BBC America's #Dynasties. AMA.
Hi Reddit, My name is Lindsay McCrae and in 2016, I received some great news. I’d been offered the job of a lifetime: filming a colony of 8,000 emperor penguins in Antarctica as part of a small team working on David Attenborough’s new BBC series Dynasties.
The area we filmed in was so isolated, we were locked in for 11 months, with no way for people to get in, or out. The time away from home meant I even missed the birth of my son. Aside from our team of three, the closest other human was on another base hundreds of miles away.
