Filming Florida is a three-year journey undertaken by conservation photographer and filmmaker Drew Fulton to tell the story of the natural landscape and biodiversity of Florida. It is a narrative of Florida’s inherent beauty interwoven with the photographer’s experiences of discovery and filmmaking. Filming Florida showcases one of the country’s most diverse states—its landscape, wildlife, and natural history—while inspiring individuals to learn about, explore, and conserve the incredible biodiversity of Florida.
The project will culminate with the release of an eight part natural history series; a large format, photographic book; and a multimedia, educational exhibition. During the three-year project, Drew will continually bring the stories of Florida to life using cutting edge technology through Nature Profiles, a biweekly series of natural history short films, and the Daily Species, a daily introduction to a new Florida species in partnership with the international project Meet Your Neighbours.
Filming Florida began on January 1, 2014, and will continue filming through 2016 with a planned release of the film series, book, and exhibition in 2017.
