The first webinar, How can we make Natural History content engaging for younger audiences, we will be joined by Ash Kapur, Dawood Qureshi, and Dan O’Neill. We will discuss how Natural History content can be tailored to motivate younger audiences and engage them with the natural world through storytelling. How can wildlife film be used as a tool to inspire long term, meaningful action and connectedness with nature? 

Our second webinar focuses on the many untold stories within the natural filmmaking world. Now more than ever, it is important we share these stories and examine the power of hyper-local storytelling. As part of this webinar, we will be joined by Laura Pennafort, Natalie Clements and Will Clothier, all bringing their unique own thoughts and insights on the power of local storytelling. 

Finally, our last webinar in this emerging talent series will be joined by Camera operator, Ben Cherry, for a one on one interview, talking through his journey into the Wildlife filmmaking industry.

All our May webinars will be FREE to attend and open to everyone to join. For full details, visit the Wildscreen Eventbrite page here
