RED Collective: The WildsJanuary 29, 2018
As wildlife filmmakers, Shannon Wild and Russell MacLaughlin, also known as ‘The Wilds’, travel to the far reaches of the globe to document rare and endangered animals in their natural habitat. The husband-and-wife team is driven by their passion for global conservation efforts and have dedicated their lives to highlighting the unique moments they’ve shared with each of these animals. Featured in documentaries for National Geographic and Animal Planet, The Wilds work tirelessly to bring attention to animals by sharing their images with as many people as possible.
In this RED Collective, Shannon and Russell journey to Indonesia and Kenya to document Komodo dragons as well as a pride of lions. Watch as they discuss the dedication and patience required to shoot wildlife images and how important it is to have high-performance equipment on hand to capture all of nature’s spontaneous moments.
Whether chronicling the speed of the hunt from afar or focusing in on the intricacies of the world’s largest living reptile, Shannon and Russell use their RED cameras to bring awareness to these vulnerable animals through both motion and stills.
