Environmental Film Festival: Shooting in the Wild - Reception/Film at American U

Seeing something involving Chris Palmer is a highlight of every Environmental Film Festival; he is a character in every sense of the word (and a very accomplished one at that, especially at handstands). The fact that this is free and starts with a small reception at 6:30 makes it extra nice for us as a group. There is plenty of parking on campus and buses that go there. The EFF listing says you can take an AU shuttle from Tenley metro, though I need to check on that. Either way, you can get a ride back to the Metro with one of us. This should be fun.

World Premiere Veteran wildlife film producer Chris Palmer’s controversial book, “Shooting in the Wild: An Insider’s Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom,” has been widely praised. Now it has been turned into an insightful film for public television. Hosted by National Geographic emerging explorer and filmmaker Alexandra Cousteau, the film takes a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of natural history filmmaking and shows the reality behind the lens. The film reveals industry secrets for getting the perfect shot while discussing the pervasive and troubling trend toward sensationalism, extreme risk-taking and even animal abuse. Directed by Ed Beimfohr. Produced by Frank Fitzmaurice and by American University School of Communication in association with Maryland Public Television.

Introduction and post-screening discussion with filmmaker and author Chris Palmer. He will also screen the winners of this year’s Eco-Comedy Video Competition, sponsored by A.U.’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking and the Sierra Club.

    Here's how it works tonight. At 6:30 - maybe even a few minutes earlier - they'll start the reception in the hallway there on the 3rd floor of the Mary Graydon Center. It's very casual. In fact, Chris Palmer likes to say hello to everyone usually. We should claim seats by 6:45 - just throw our stuff on them - because they tend to fill up. Then we can socialize a little more before sitting down for good. My number is[masked] if you need to text. It will be a very enjoyable presentation.
