Unique and Very Informative

Unique takes on wildlife filmmaking - everything from production tips and gear discussions to ethics, career advice and conservation. A wide gamut of topics dissected by experts. Jake does a great job keeping the discussion moving and engaging. Really enjoying this podcast.

Perfect for Wildlife Filmmakers!

Each one of these episodes has a nugget of gold for any wildlife filmmaker, cameraman, or others in the business and wanting to enter the field. The interview with Doug Allen is especially informative for camera operators with invaluable advice and words. Keep up the great work and insights Jake!
