Postcard from Cairns: Biopixel delivers nature to a locked down world

Specialising in underwater footage, the Cairns-based company has a new lens that helps them move onto land.

Writing from deepest darkest Melbourne in the middle of a hard lockdown, who could blame me for wanting to profile Biopixel, a Cairns-based screen company specialising in nature and underwater filming? Talking to them was the closest I was going to get to my annual winter snorkelling getaway. Turtles, whale sharks, manta rays, blue skies and warm water, this story had it all. 

As it turns out, Biopixel is keen to evolve into a company known for its work on land as well as in the oceans, but their work under and around the water continues to be the core business, alongside newer terrestrial pursuits.
