The Story Behind the Podcast

Why an audio podcast? Here at Wild Lens we spend most of our time producing films and videos. The videos that we release as a part of Eyes on Conservation are usually 5 min or less, but what about those folks who want to learn more? It can take a year or more to produce a longer film – my feature length doc Scavenger Hunt took 4 years to complete!

Our solution – take some of the biologists, researchers and citizen scientists that we feature in our short videos, and invite them to participate in a extended radio-style interviews. We hope that you enjoy the show!


From Field Biologist to Filmmaker

Every once in a while we dedicate an entire show to teaching about one specific component of the filmmaking process. Podcast host Matt Podolsky shares stories and advice learned from his unique experience as a field biologist turned filmmaker. Topics covered in this ongoing series thus far include; the story outline, a shooting guide, and the documentary interview.
