Jason is Course Co-ordinator at Wildeye - International Wildlife Film School (www.wildeye.co.uk), and an Editor for Wildeye Publishing, producing 'Wild Pages: The Wildlife Film-makers Resource Guide' every two years.
He is also Editor of 'Wildlife Film News', a monthly wildlife film newsletter (www.wildlife-film.com/news.html), and Producer of www.wildlife-film.com - Jason has been fascinated by wildlife ever since growing up on a farm in Sussex, England. Very early on he developed a deep respect for all that was around him but soon discovered that the natural world was in deep trouble. He studied biological sciences at university in London and then became involved in various conservation projects around the world, including working in the rain forests of northern Vietnam and with cheetah in Southern Africa. He then went on to study wildlife film-making in Cape Town and has worked as a wildlife film researcher before taking on his current roles.
Jason is passionate about finding solutions to conservation and development issues and believes visual media to be the most effective tool for prompting change. He is also the project co-ordinator on the Films That Make a Difference database (www.filmmakersforconservation.org/ftmad.htm) and is thrilled to be involved in this initiative to catalogue films that have already made a difference in the hope of inspiring others to do the same!
