Join Shem Compion in discussion with wildlife and documentary filmmakers Abraham Joffe and Dom West. Abraham and Dom have worked on many productions but two of them stand out for us at C4 - the award-winning documentary "Tales by light" which follows photographers as they push the limits of their craft and has featured two C4 Atelier guests from a previous webinar, Art Wolfe and Jonathon Scott. Abraham and Dom were also both involved with directing and producing Animal Planet's new natural history series 'Big Cat Tales' presented by Jonathon and Angela Scott and Ole Looseyia.
They'll be discussing a wide range of topics from the industry including life behind the scenes, evolving technology and of course creativity and the art of story-telling.
