Life Lessons from Wildlife,

A Natural history filmmakers’ humbling experiences in the wild

By Rob Waldron

 

Taking an average of two years to complete, each wildlife film is a tribute to the animals and conservationists that work with them daily. Working closely with specialist scientists and conservationists such as Dr.Gus Mills, Dr. Paul Funston, Dr Ian Player, Dr. Ian Whyte, and Prof Antoinette Kotze, the films emerge with good science pointing the way to the future. Yet it is the animals themselves which surprise always, with their daily lessons on life.

Join EWT and Rob Waldron for a deeper look into the exciting world of creating wildlife documentaries in Southern Africa.

Robert Waldron has produced wildlife films for National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, amongst other broadcasters nationwide. His films have won a number of awards at the International Wildlife Film Festival in the USA; the Director’s Prize in Italy and the Best Film on Wildlife at the IUCN. These films have given him the privilege of observing wildlife in action, over many years, and in particular endangered species across the world, from the far reaches of Southern Africa to the wild areas of North America.

Apart from producing and screenwriting, Robert has recently published his first novel ‘Walk in the Cool’ dealing with the marginalisation of the San people of the Kalahari. Robert owns the film production company Wild Dog Productions, with branches in South Africa and Gaborone, Botswana.

We look forward to seeing you there!
