Storyboard plan 

"The video will attempt to tell the story of the link between Mole Creek, Tasmania - the modern home of 'thylacine tall stories and culture' and the new genomic science being undertaken by partners Colossal Inc & Tigrr Lab ( & other parties).

Humour is interspersed with the idea that whilst the science of a genetically engineered thylacine is in motion, a live tiger strolls casually into the Mole Creek hotel kitchen. Here the lyrics in verse 2 tell the story. Patrons celebrate. And the striped Tiger pie served by the hotel - is surely a stroke of artistic genius.

At the epicentre of thylacine culture are the figures of Doug and Ramona Westbrook, who host visitors from around the world in the Tas Tiger Bar. They are welcoming to all sentient beings. They represent the true 'heartbeat' of the annual music festival of tribute bands, who perform in the grounds of the historic hotel - in a township of just over 500.

 

Cut to aerial shots - out there, folklore says somewhere in the Western Tier forests, the Tasmanian Tiger may (or may not) be alive. Time will tell. Patience is required. And the controversy over its re-wilding continues..."
