The Last Refuge Stock Film Library has continued to expand. In addition to our own footage on wildlife, the environment, aerial footage, Time-Lapse studies, Anthropology, the weather and starscapes, from Africa, South America and the United Kingdom, we act as agents for a growing number of other archives. We can now offer over 1,000 hours of scientific, medical and industrial subjects from the renowned Clouds Hill Imaging archive of David Spears, including human pregnancy, and unique micro and macro studies of parasites; beautiful time-lapse studies from John Waters; and stunning adventure, skydiving, ballooning, and climbing footage from Leo Dickinson which includes his balloon flight over Mount Everest.
Our own aerial footage mostly comprises shots from our unique Moving Camera Wing Mount, which offers forward facing shots with an option to progressively tilt the camera down to a vertical perspective. Available now in the library are aerial shots inside and outside the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, at both high and low level; Lake Natron; Mount Lengai; the Serengeti; the Virunga Volcanoes (home of Mountain Gorillas); and landscapes of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). From South America, we have extensive aerial footage of the Lost World tablelands (Tepuis) of Venezuela and Guyana in South America, featuring Mount Roraima, Auyantepui, Angle Falls, the Sink Holes of Sarisarinama, Rain Forest and many more - see video clips. For the United Kingdom, we have a growing aerial footage catalogue, comprising cloudscapes and British Landscapes showing field patterns and historical features.
Wildlife, environmental and anthropological footage includes: from Africa, behaviour of Mountain Gorillas, Golden Monkeys, a Serval family, Cheetahs, Lions, Wildebeest, Zebras, Elephants, Black Rhinoceros, Buffalo, Golden Jackals hunting flamingoes, Vultures (including Lappet-faced), and many other species of mammals and birds; from Madagascar, the rare Golden-Crowned Sifaka; from South America, the wildlife and landscapes of the Lost World tepuis, and a unique collection of footage of the Huoarani (Waorani) Indians of Ecuador including their traditional way of life and interviews with the men who took part in the missionary killings of 1956.
