Project Description

Taking on Tyson

Animal Planet  –  Touch Productions  –  Director   Karen Plumb

Mike Tyson began his love affair with pigeons around the age of 7 in Brownsville, Brooklyn. A local pigeon flyer asked the young Tyson to help clean his coop. Pigeons were an important part of life in Brownsville in the 1970s and Tyson looked up to the top pigeon flyers in his neighborhood.

Now having teamed up with some of his friends – Mike will be learning how to prepare, train and race his pigeons, ready to compete in the six-month pigeon-racing season.

The main camera was the HDX 900 with the mini HD camera HXR -MC1P utilized within the various lofts for some fantastic CU.
