Enigma Man - A Stone Age Mystery

25 Jun 2014

SAE film student Kyla Smith worked as a production runner and set assistant on Electric Pictures production Enigma Man - A Stone Age Mystery. It was filmed in July 2013 at Booyong Nature Reserve south west of Byron Bay and the ‘cave’ scenes at a private property in Numinbah Valley QLD. 

At that stage, Kyla was a Tri 2 film student at the Byron Bay campus. Kyla says it was it was an amazing experience being on set, sitting alongside the director and production manager and learning from them, marveling at the three hours it took working on a prosthetic mask and making good industry contacts.     

The documentary explores the enigma of the Red Deer Cave people whose mysterious ancient human remains were discovered by Australian and Chinese scientists in a remote cave in South West China. The bones are unlike any living human or any ancient human known to science and could challenge everything we know about human evolution. Could they represent a new human species? And if so, what happened to them?
