Making the Object Cinema

Where did the film come from? A team from Glasgow Museums filmed in the Ecuadorian Amazon over two months in 2012. The pictures here show our cameraman, David Pincay and some of his work for the Object Cinema. Staff and alumni of the University of Glasgow and University of the West Indies were also extremely generous with film they had captured during visits to the Ecuadorian and Trinidadian rainforest.

Why did they do it? David and his family, like many of the contributors, live in a rainforest region, and wanted to share their lives and let others experience something of the rainforest that is their home. Our university contributors were also keen to share their experiences and animal encounters in this unique and stunning environment.
