Born in 1979 Hilco Jansma started out as a biologist before deciding to switch careers in 2014. With a GH3 Panasonic camera, a drone borrowed from a friend and with his own money he started out on a one year full time project filming the Noorderplantsoen Park in the Dutch city of Groningen. After another three months of editing he finished his nature documentary on the lives of the moorhens and coots in the park. He wanted to show that nature is right on everyone’s doorstep. The film was nominated for the Best Professional Film award at the Rotterdam Wildlife Film Festival.
