I assume that this means that our film should be focused on any non-human animal life forms. What I would like to clarify however, is does this mean that the film should not contain any humans at all or can we show some humans in the video, just not as a primary focus?

hm, i thought i was just kinda slippin' that in there...

ralph, you can have your humans make their cameos...the goal is to stay focused on executing an interpretation of the theme. conceivably, you could have a bunch of humans talking about something wildlife-oriented, but, unless it's an amazing story with interesting cinematography, you probably won't please this crowd of animal voyeurs.
