We take pride in all our projects, whether they be solely a Natural Perspectives production or in partnership with other individuals and organisations. Some of our most recent highlights are:



As part of the 2014 reintroduction of Western Quoll to the Flinders Ranges, Nicholas had the chance to crew for John Maguire of Environment Media on, Idnya.

Idnya (Western Quoll) are a very important animal for the Adnyamathna people and their reintroduction to the Flinders Ranges will have enormous cultural and tourism benefit. Funded by FAME and implemented by the Department for Environment, the release will also benefit local ecosystems. Ecological scientist David Peacock has been advocating for the return of Quoll to the Flinders for years, saying they will act as a native top order predator and reduce Rabbit numbers, allowing native plants and the ecosystem as a whole to recover.


Defend the Defenders

We recently produced two short films, Defend the Defenders for the Environmental Defenders Office SA. The EDO has just had their federal funding slashed which puts at jeopardy their great work supporting the community with free legal advice on environmental matters.

Get behind them and offer your support.


Endangered Ranger

Our first video for 2014, Endangered Ranger was produced with Conservation SA as part of their state election campaign to encourage political parties to better fund environmental protection.

It's a great campaign and well worth your support.


SA Greens online films

Nicholas is currently part of a team producing several online films for the SA Greens in the run up to the state election in March 2014.

The first few films have recently been released and can be seen at the GreensMPsSA youtube channel.


Voices from the Murray Mouth

Commissioned by the Australian Conservation Foundation, Voices from the Murray Mouth is a series of short vignettes of South Australian farmers and fishers concerned about the plight of the River Murray. It was produced in partnership with Marian F McDuie in late 2010. The vignettes can be viewed online:


Sand in my Veins

Adelaide's coastline once teamed with life. High dunes and vast wetlands ran from modern day Brighton, north to the very tip of the Le Fevre Peninsula. Urban development has spelled an end to much of this habitat. The most significant remaining patch is the Tennyson Dunes.

Seen through the life of one man, Sand in my Veins explores this very last remnant of coastal sand dunes. The last stronghold for Painted Dragons and Singing Honeyeaters, these dunes are now besieged by feral pests, inappropriate development, sea level rise, ignorance and vandalism.

It is a story of passion, fighting spirit and a struggle against the odds.

Nicholas Crouch wrote, directed and produced this short documentary as a Flinders University Masters in Natural History Film-Making production, in partnership with the Tennyson Dunes Group. Crew included Sian Bates, Linda Kennedy, Irene Ngo and Mirek Krejci. We are presently out of stock of the DVD, however it is available online on our Natural Perspectives Vimeo page.


Hand to Hand

Greening Australia's TV Commercial, Hand to Hand, was produced for Greening Australia SA in partnership with Eddie Powell and Andrés Castañeda as part of the Flinders University Masters in Natural History Film-Making program.

Beyond the Coast

Beyond the Coast is a series of seven short documentaries commissioned by SARDI Aquatic Sciences to highlight southern Australia's marine environment.
