This is an extended scene from Great White Lies featuring Dr. Christopher Neff. For the sake of pacing I cut all my interviews heavily, but All of Dr. Neff's words are worth hearing so I am rolling out his entire interview to the public over the next several days.
In this segment we are discussing his early research regarding Western Australia's reactions to shark bites and basically predicted Colin Barnett's shark cull. He then goes on to explain how killing sharks is a political platform, whether it makes people safer or not. Perhaps most disturbing is that manipulating the public rather than educating them puts them at even greater risk.
While Dr. Neff's interview was brilliant, I'm afraid my filming wasn't. I wasn't sitting behind the camera and the autofocus was failed, but please try to ignore that and focus instead on his message. #greatwhitelies #predictingthesharkcull #sharkcull #nosharkcull #sharknets It's like Shark Week...except it's good for sharks.
