    Default Talking swearing pigeons.

    Pigeons cant act but i think they may be much more intelligent than they let on.

    A pair have lived in my house for a few years as I feed them. I could hear the babies so I thought it would be interesting to film them.

    Up ladder - film for ages - look to see if anything looks interesting - repeat for an hour or so.

    All shot on my old tatty sony PC4 with cheap and nasty wide adaptor. Me leaning off ladder holding camera.

    In post the contrast is increased a bit. The sec col corrector was used to make the colour of the pigeon's chest much more vivid, with the side effect that the extreme foreground is a bit blue.

    I think the pigeons wanted me to stop - this is what I imagine the conversation was. It was spooky how easy it was to cobble together some words to fit.

    Pigeon footsteps is crisp packet being squeezed.

    Contains swearing.

    That'll teach you to go round filming kids. And I bet you haven't got a signed release.
    (I admire your patience in order to get the shots)

    I certainly enjoyed that, it was a very funny take on a subject that has either affected us in the past or will affect us at some stage in the future. You'll be getting a knock on the front door one of these days when the pigeons get an agent, now that could get messy. I hope none of them have heard/seen Christian Bales recent performance and start getting ideas?
