MARTINA NAGEL (Director/Cinematographer/Screenwriter)
Martina has worked for 10 years in British television, mainly on documentaries for the BBC as cinematographer and recently worked alongside Robert Driskell who was DoP on the American feature film End of the Spear by Every Tribe Entertainment. Martina was DoP of the Second and Aerial unit on the feature, both of whom received critical praise for their work (see below)
End Of The Spear
"Robert A. Driskell Jr.'s sumptuous cinematography (the movie was filmed mostly in Panama) makes every raindrop glisten, every leaf appear translucent and every winding river resemble a flowing turquoise train.... The missionaries and their families had settled in the Amazon Basin hoping to save the endangered tribe, then known as the Auca, from extinction in deadly intertribal warfare. Because Nate piloted a bright yellow aircraft, which the astonished Waodani identify as "a wooden bee" when it first buzzes overhead, the movie has some gorgeous aerial photography."

"Lenser Robert Driskell has some spectacular territory to work with (principal photography took place in Panama, rather than the dramatic setting of Ecuador's Amazon basin). But Driskell's work, like many of the film's technical aspects, also involved logistical hurdles, all overcome with aplomb. Aerial work for a scene when Nate takes tribesmen up in a small plane is particularly impressive."
