Visual Obsession was contracted by Pangolin Pictures to assist in producing and shooting segments for their new National Geographic series: Invaders. Visual Obsession cameraman Corey Austin travelled to Darwin in the Northern Territory to film an aerial pig cull from a chopper. He filmed experienced shooter Richard Baker from both inside and outside the helicopter as he shot large numbers of pigs on the land.

Documenting the impact of feral pigs in society, Visual Obsession assisted Pangolin Pictures in finding stories, organising visas, supplying local fixers and production assistants. The show aired internationally on the National Geographic channel.
