Not Just Another Nature Film

On a Digital Canopy Expedition to Costa Rica or the Cascade Mountains, our digital filmmaking workshops aren’t about making “nature films.” We look for new ways to explore human interaction with the natural environment. Without trying to sound too cliché, that’s why we share examples of media that push boundaries.

Pushing boundaries isn’t just figurative, like taking production from traditional nature filmmaking to multimedia narrative. Sometimes the boundaries are emotional. Are most of us emotionally separated from the natural environment? Check out Gregory Colbert’s “Ashes and Snow.”
