Giles previously made two short films. Once More unto the Breach (2010), about bottlenose dolphins in the Moray Firth, and Sealed with a Kiss (2009), about the relationship between a grey seal mother and pup.

Richard Brock worked in the BBC Natural History Unit for 35 years producing, among others, the highly successful Life on Earth and Living Planet series with David Attenborough. Concerned by the lack of willingness to address the real current state of the environment he left the BBC and started his own independent production company Living Planet Productions.Living Planet Productions has made over 100 films on a wide range of environmental topics, shown all over the world. As his archive of films and footage mounted up, Richard felt that there was something more, better, that could be done with this resource, so he set up the Brock Initiative.

"I try to get stuff out there that will make a difference. There are now more ways of doing that than ever before. It can be in any format, anywhere, anyhow. I will provide free footage on wildlife and environmental matters from around the world. I am always interested in issues where "Filming with Attitude" might help the planet. Just let me know."

Adrian is an ‘award winning’ independent wildlife film maker: a self-shooting Producer / Director, Writer and Presenter. Described by BBC Wildlife Magazine as someone who “takes multi-tasking to new levels” Adrian is always willing to roll up his sleeves and get stuck in. He has been known to set off with just a camera and a whim and come back with all the material for a solid and creative documentary. As he says “The eternal wait for a commissioner to say yes or for budgets to fall into place can compromise the story and the story won’t always wait.”

Recent credits include an episode of Panorama for BBC1, investigating the devastating effect of the palm oil industry on the environment and particularly the orangutan, and the much repeated series Gibbons: Back in the Swing for Animal Planet International.

Adrian is also a Wildeye Tutor.

A film I was told virtually impossible to do. 10 years in the making a world first to capture on film there whole breeding season from November to August. All my footage is of wild birds.

I like a challenge. I'm just starting to edit a film of the whole lives of Tawny owls throughout the year, also a first.

Then, hopefully next season, a film on the goshawks lives throughout the year. Just in talks about a nest site at moment for filming.

Douglas Lyon: Line Producer, Field Producer and founder of Excelman Productions.

We are Producers, Production Managers, Line Producers, Field Producers, Journalists and Directors! We have 20 years of experience in more than 50 different countries, with an incredible network of contacts, and reliable veteran staff in each country! We have come to be known as "Africa specialists", but actually we began with Fashion and News, then Variety shows and Reality Shows, and although we love it all, but we must confess a particular passion for Broadcast News, Documentaries, and... well, you guessed it: Africa! The primary vocation of Excelman Productions ranges from the complete production to simply the logistic management and co-ordination, of a wide spectrum of primarily audio-visual projects in video or film: hard news, documentaries, live satellite broadcasts, variety shows, reality shows, sports events, TV films, commercials, etc. In just a few years, after many prestigious shoots all over France, Europe and two dozen African nations (a total of more than 50 different countries), EXCELMAN Productions has become a privileged partner of all of the major Japanese television networks and production companies as well as the most prominent advertising agencies. Need a crew to tell your story? A Producer? Director? A Journalist? Contact Us! We work extensively throughout Europe and Africa and we would be delighted to suggest cost effective solutions in order to achieve results above and beyond your hopes and expectations!

As concerns the wildlife film genre, strangely we have not done any! It is a mystery, but given our extensive experience in Africa, it would be very easy for us to handle the logistics of such projects, which is why I thought that Wildlife-Film.com might be good for us... We have, of course, for many of our Africa projects, tracked and filmed wild animals, and have a good idea of the difficulties involved... but we have never worked on a project dedicated strictly to the “Wildlife” theme... Yet!

Sebastien was born and bred in Libreville, Gabon (Central Africa) - hence his deep passion for Nature and his love of adventure, traveling and sharing!

After studying european and african nature conservation and wildlife filmmaking, he had the opportunity to work in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve as a 2D/3D camera operator, editor and presenter for Wildearth.TV for their live safaris. Being one of the pioneers in the 3D film industry, he was approached by world renowned filmmakers, Foster Brother Productions, to work on Dragon 3D. This 1 hour film is about scuba diving with Nile Crocodiles in the Okavango Delta and Seb was responsible for all the online 3D editing. During his film career, Seb has edited numerous projects for Wildearth.tv, his flagship being a 13 part 3D series about safaris in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the current series called Kalahari Meerkats 3D with Wildearth.TV

He is now an independent wildlife filmmaker through Beyond Borders Productions trading as 'Beyond Borders' where he tries to get involved into as many wildlife documentaries and films as possible, marketing himself as a producer, 2D&3D video editor, DOP and 2D&3D camera operator. Seb has a professional edit suite with iMacs, Final Cut Pro and a 3D TV and can also offer his editing services with his own equipment if you don't have yours.

Seb is now based in Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route of South Africa. He is a very keen traveller and he will not hesitate to jump in a car or a plane to be part of your current production if you need his services.

His other project for 2013 is the opening of his 3D Nature Film School! His love and passion for all things wild and free can be seen in his projects, and his open mindedness and inventive thinking can only be a benefit to your current and future productions.
