Animal Planet Brings Music Driven CAUGHT IN THE MOMENT To Life

Animal Planet′s new series CAUGHT IN THE MOMENT introduces viewers to the next generation of wildlife filmmaking. Tristan Bayer, the son of famed wildlife cinematographer, Wolfgang Bayer, partners with his childhood sweetheart/best friend Vanessa Garnick to capture rare moments in nature.

Following the footsteps of his father, Tristan takes his own fresh and unique approach to wildlife filmmaking. Paired with Vanessa, who is a certified naturalist with a focus on ecology and a passion for rare and endangered species, the twosome travel the globe on an intrepid adventure to catch glimpses of endangered species and animals in fleeting, beautiful moments. Stops include Madagascar, India, Cocos Islands, Japan, Costa Rica, Mongolia and more!

Each episode is music driven, propelling the journey forward to the final act when Tristan and Vanessa′s one-hour adventure is compiled into a three-minute music video montage - nature′s soundtrack - played against tracks from emerging contemporary artists.

CAUGHT IN THE MOMENT premieres Monday, July 10, at 9:00 PM ET/PT
