WILD x RED | The Call of the Sky

"Inspired by living in London, noticing birds fly overhead and wanting to follow, this journey from the city is an exploration of what birdwatching means to me"

Jack Wylson - one of The Big Sky founders - was nominated for the WILDxRED challenge, a collaboration between RED Digital Cinema cameras and National Geographic. Seven filmmakers from around the world were selected to ‘reinvent wildlife filmmaking’ using the new 8k Red Weapon movie camera. The resulting film ‘The Call of the Sky’ was a finalist in the competition and screened at Jackson Hole Wild, in Wyoming. 

Filmed along the southern coast of Ireland this poetic, existential take on birds and birdwatching is was inspired by the writing of Peter Matthiessen and J. A. Baker and shot in the vein of a surf movie.
