'Shooting in the Wild' - An Insider's Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom.
May 12, 2010
Hosted by David Gibbons
Chris Palmer veteran environmental film director, producer and author of his latest book “Shooting in the Wild” joins David Gibbons on “In Discussion” to discuss his work. Wildlife and nature films are a hugely popular entertainment genre: networks such as Animal Planet and Discovery are stars in the cable television universe, viewers flock to IMAX theaters to see jaw-dropping footage from the wild, and the venerable BBC still scores triumphs with series such as Planet Earth. As cinematic technology brings ever-more-breathtaking images to the screen, and as our direct contact with nature diminishes, an ever-expanding audience craves the indirect experience of wild nature that these films provide. But this success has a dark side, as Chris Palmer reveals in his authoritative and engrossing report on the wildlife film business. His book, Shooting in the Wild, will be published in June by Sierra Club Books.
