Wildlife and nature films are a hugely popular entertainment genre. As cinematic technology brings ever more breathtaking images to the screen, and as direct contact with nature diminishes, an ever-expanding audience craves the indirect experience of wild nature that these films provide.
But this success has a dark side, as the author reveals. His investigations uncover a more pervasive and troubling trend toward sensationalism, extreme risk-taking, and even abuse in wildlife films. He tracks the roots of this trend to the early days of the genre, and he profiles a new breed of skilled, ethical filmmakers whose work enlightens as well as entertains.
Praise for "Shooting in the Wild"
"A well-reasoned yet passionate argument for changing wildlife filmmaking practices and creating ethical guidelines, this is an accessible and engaging read." --"Library Journal"
