Procam attended the Wildscreen’s Wildlife Storytelling event at the Glasgow Science Centre. The event was hosted in partnership with the University of West Scotland and Mara Media, and was made up of a series of panel discussions that provided students and filmmakers with an opportunity to learn more about the diversity of crafts and roles involved in creating a wildlife film masterpiece.
Procam’s technician and camera operator, Kirsty Elliot, was invited to speak on a panel exploring the anatomy of a wildlife film alongside award-winning cameraman and TV presenter, Gordon Buchanan and camera operator, Lindsay McCrae.
Chaired by Nigel Pope from Keo North and Maramedia, the panel discussed the ins and outs of what it takes to make a wildlife film, and shared how to take an idea from concept to capture, through to broadcast.
Our camera operator Christian McKenna was also on-site, capturing the panel events which ran from 09.30am until 12pm.
Procam is proud to be the principal kit supplier for Gordon Buchanan’s Into The Wild and Lindsay McCrae’s Highlands: Wild Heart of Scotland, both broadcasted on the BBC.
Other speakers included Campbell Glennie, Talent Schemes Director at Edinburgh TV Festival, Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo and Harry Bell, Creative Director of Tern TV, Scotland’s biggest indigenous independent TV company.
Wildscreen celebrated the fast-growing wildlife filmmaking industry in Scotland and provides opportunity to nurture home-grown talent.
