The Birders: Director’s Story, Behind the Scenes Making the Film

The Birders, directed by our founder Gregg Bleakney and produced, edited and distributed by WhereNext, is a documentary film series about Colombian bird diversity and birdwatching.

The Colombian Ministry of Tourism (ProColombia) and and Sancho BBDO selected our agency to produce this campaign through a tender process. In winning this bid, a mixed private and public sector selection committee unanimously awarded the contract to WhereNext over every major production and creative studio, both national and international, with offices in Colombia. 

With over 1 million views and a record breaking 30 + million social media likes and shares, the films have changed the perception of Colombia through showcasing the diversity of birds who live there and established the country as the number one birding destination on the planet.

The Birders also incorporates an original score from local musicians inspired by the bird songs found in the film.


WhereNext was awarded the contract by ProColombia to create a long-form documentary film and five short films about bird diversity in Colombia. However, they then went the extra mile. In addition to producing a stunning documentary film series, they then delivered a music record utilizing local Colombian artists based on birdsong recorded in the field during the documentary and a FAM trip that brought some of the top nature and birding-specific operators and journalists in our target markets to Colombia. After the FAM, they created a custom media package for each operator, which included a branded video and world class photography to help sell their new Colombian products to digital consumers. WhereNext was able to work with us in fluent Spanish, but communicate effective video stories to our target native English-speaking markets. They always put our needs first. Their work helped us build a forward-thinking tourism campaign that helped establish Colombia as the number one birding destination on the planet.
