This documentary quickly became a source of inspiration for me. Neil Rettig is the primary film maker on the American Eagle project. Neil is a Wisconson native and has many other excellent films such as Raptor Force. It quickly became a dream of mine to produce work like Mr. Rettig's. The scenes of the eagles and the story behind it was very moving. I figured that my version of the story would be still images. Now with DSLR's producing HD quality video I hope to also capture some motion along with my still images of my favorite bird of prey.
I've included a video of some behind the scenes footage of the making of American Eagle and an interview with Neil Rettig. A DVD or Blu Ray of American Eagle are available on Amazon of which I've provided a link. If your interested in bald eagles, raptors, wildlife photography or film making I strongly recommend owning a copy. I watch it often for inspiration during my annual eagle photography.
