Why is this Beneficial to our Conservation Initiatives ?
Our Method of Choice is documentary filmmaking, supported by science and technology.
We put ourselves on the line --- The Front Line.
We have a unique model for saving elephants and are passionate about our work. We provide a platform for talented filmmakers, writers and scientists to join us with their own passion and talent. We often embed ourselves with the rangers and veterinarians of Sri Lanka's Department of Wildlife, the veterinarians of MTE (Myanmar Timber Enterprise), naturalists at India's jungle lodges or our own veteran trackers and conservationists.
Our goal is to educate the masses about the threats endangering the Asian Elephants, as well as the challenges faced by local villagers and farmers. As conservationists, we long ago determined that documentary film and social media is the contemporary way to effect cultural change. Our crews range from beginners to veterans; from interns and students to the merely curious. At any level, and with any skill set, we provide the platform for you to either learn, or ply your trade. We’ve produced over 100 films in the past few years - videoblogs, and documentary shorts are the contemporary genre.
ElephantNow.org’s average weekly reach on Facebook is now 20,000. When we have new films, we often reach 500,000/week. This is more than small market television channels!
Whether an independent NGO, or aspiring one; an established media company or film corporation - we can help. We are all conservationists by heart, but often people don’t know how to combine their skills with their passion. Our executive director has mentored many amd guided diverse groups on tours and projects of a lifetime. His 20 year history of work in Sri Lanka and India means he, and we, are deeply embedded with the culture. We are networked with the experts, both in government and local conservationists. We will provide you the “backstory” on any multitude of topics - making you the expert and allowing you to focus on shaping your presentation. You may have a unique perspective and audience, and this is perfect, because our reach becomes ever deeper and broader.
It's All For Love of Elephants
