Do I dare ask for a few criptic hints as to what to look forward to.

I know, I know, I just had to ask!

I haven't seen the final version but I can tell you a couple of my favorite bits in the cut I saw.  I like the way they tie the Nessie photo into Emily Sikuli marking the map where she saw airplane wreckage.  It's a real convincer.
And there's a great sequence late in the show where forensic anthropologist Kar Burns describes, and shows, what happens when the crabs come for you. It's pure Hitchcock.

Ric,
Let me ask this simple question, knowing that you can't give away the Discovery Cannel's final conclutions; is there anything of subsence from the last visit to Niku that adds to the TIGHAR theory?

I'll say this much.  We didn't waste our time out there but don't expect parting clouds and heavenly choirs either.

Yeah, it's never an OMG moment ... it's the six months ... nine months ... three years later moment when it all comes together. Been there, done that.

I told my daughter we had to rent Hitchcock's Psycho before watching the Discovery TIGHAR program. When she asked why, I said, "No reason ..."  ;D

> ... Kinda challenges the notion of a 'desert isle in paradise', doesn't it?  

Roger Kelley talked our way into the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva in 2003.

We went all over the place--even up onto the roof, where I took some pictures.







I was laughing at myself even as I took the pictures.  The sun on the roof, beating down on the asphalt roof, was almost unendurable.  I figured that the pictures would turn out well.  Tropical islands photograph beautifully, but the sunshine is harsh!

LTM,

Sounds awesome! I'm sure the documentary was fun to make/do. :) I can't wait to see this; thanks for the hints, Ric!

The trick to being filmed for a documentary is to forget that you're being filmed for a documentary.

"Once you learn to fake sincerity, you've got it made."

LOL!  I sincerely believe that!
An important part of my job is to be TIGHAR's principal storyteller, both in print and on-screen.  In the latter respect I have a couple of advantages.  Throughout high school and college I was active in theater, so I'm comfortable in front of an audience. For the Discovery documentary it also helped that nearly all of the interviews with me - before, during, and after the expedition - were shot by Mark Smith of Oh Seven Films. Mark is a Peabody Award-winning cinematographer who filmed our 2001 and 2007 expeditions and numerous research activities leading up to the 2010 trip. Mark knows TIGHAR; he knows the island; and he knows me. If my interviews come off as if I'm just telling a great story to a good friend, it's because I am.

You do good work.  We wouldn't be here without your gift for synthesis.  Go, Ric!

I agree with Marty; you do awesome work, Ric! I know all of us here appreciate your hard work on those expeditions (and all of the TIGHAR members who have gone on previous exhibitions)!
