In this charming short film we meet Donald Headon and his racing pigeons from Barnstaple. Don shows us inside his pigeon loft, talks about the value of messenger pigeons throughout history and shows us some tiny day old pigeon chicks.
This film was made by Ashley Headon and Jake Alexander with help from Jenny Williamson, working with North Devon Moving Image's NDMI Academy - an outreach programme building skills and confidence in young people and and giving them a chance to have their say.
The students used an iPad Air in an iOgrapher case and an iRig pre-amp with professional boom microphone.
This project was made possible with funding from Devon Community Foundation - many thanks for your support.
