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.
5.Msc in Otago University in New Zealand.
6.Wildeye an organisation for independent wildlife filmmakers inUK,conducts short term Courses.
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.
Feel free to get in touch again.

Thank you and Warm Regrads
