While Talking about becoming a Wildlife Filmmaker is no doubt is a grand lineof work.
If you are fascinated by Natural History and properly deep down interested thanthis a good career for you.If you are passionate about the nature you have tospend hours,sometimes days or even months happily being incredibly uncomfortable,away from friends and family.

In order to become a wildlife filmmaker you must a hold a B.S degreeZoology.While learning no knowledge is given of filmmaking and editing so youmust inculcate this knowledge by joining short term courses of Film Making andediting.
In order to become a wildlife film maker you can follow the steps-

CHARTING THE COURSE-
1.Do a general Filmmaking course to learn the grammar of Film.
2.Apprentice with a wildlife filmmaker or editor.
3.BA Hons Wildlife and Media at University of Cimbria UK.
4.Three years PG degree at University of Montana in Bozeman ,US.

In order to make a GREAT career in this field you must go for theinternships to inculcate a practical knowledge. You must stick to it in orderto make a career because the equipements are expensive and internationalcontracts are tough to land,it takes years to make a career in this field.Thereare only three-four professionals working in this field.

I Hope you find all the information useful.

Wish you Good Luck for GREAT Career in Wildlife.
