Wildlife crew captures humans in their natural morning habitat
THERE was an odd sight in Bristol city centre this week – pandas filming humans.
A trio of the rare bears set up their camera, clapper board and boom mike by the Cascade Steps on the Harbourside to "capture" humans on film in their natural environment, carrying out their morning rituals.
But all was not as it seemed. The pandas were, of course, actors in animal suits, promoting the first Wildscreen Fringe Festival.
Being billed as the world's most prestigious wildlife film festival the event will run from October 13 to 26 at the Watershed Cinema.

It will include a programme of events, many of which will be free and open to the public.
Highlights will include an opportunity to get very close to the animals in BBC's Frozen Planet with an interactive experience at the M shed; the first of its kind outside the United States and an opportunity to interact with the animals of the Polar region.
In the spirit of Bristol's public urban art, giant images of rare animals will be release across the city when they are projected onto the harbour's glass fronted buildings in an experience called Glimpsed which will run throughout the festival.
There will be an exclusive evening at Colston Hall called Wild America where the audience get a first-look at Discovery & Animal Planets new major series North America.
The breath-taking footage will be accompanied by music composed by BAFTA award-winning Nicholas Hooper, known for his Harry Potter film scores.
