Heartland Truly Moving Pictures has accepted a film we worked on, The Greatest Return, for their 2011 festival as an Official Selection, Short Documentary category. The Greatest Return tells the story of some of the most legendary conservationists of our time – Heroes for the natural world, gathered to discuss their views on past, present, and future issues that threaten the livelihoods of all living creatures, including us.
Directed by Matt Mays of Mays Entertainment, the film stars Elephant Biologist, Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Cheetah Conservationist, Dr. Laurie Marker, Snow Leopard Expert, Dr. Rodney Jackson, Ocean Ecologist, Dr. Carl Safina, and Landscape Preservationist, Dr. Gerardo Ceballos. We travel to Kenya, Nepal, Namibia, Mexico, and across the oceans to see these conservationists at work.
I’m proud to have contributed to this film as both a Director of Photography and as part of a team of editors. The majority of editorial was by Cory Fisher, with additional work by Tim Wilsbach and myself. Jason Roney was our field sound recordist. Color correction and finishing of the film was completed by Marc Wellington at Creative Media Group International, with audio mix by Brice Bowman at Earshot Audio Post.
