GETTING TO THE NEEDLE…
The Needle is the large rock / focus of my video.
It is the one of highest points on Rarotonga island, and an amazing hike. It gets extremely steep near the top.
We literally had to pull ourselves up using tree roots along the way. (I expected to run into Frodo and Bilbo Baggins at some point, but no luck.)
To help you understand the scale, at 10 seconds in, look for the red dot at the bottom right of the rock. That is a guy from France we met upon reaching the summit.
A lot of people have also asked me if the birds in the video are computer generated. They are not. However, I did have a production meeting with them prior to flying and told them to give me some nice big swoops through the frame while I was filming. Kidding.
