Filmmaking is much more than simply creating something that is visually beautiful, it is about telling stories. These stories have the power to create change. I am not just talking about activist films that follow a strict agenda to ignite action towards a specific cause. A simple film allowing someone insight into an animal’s life, falling in love with its beauty, could ignite long-lasting change in a person’s behavior. This is why wildlife filmmaking can be so incredibly powerful as a tool for conservation.
