Our judge for UWOL #15 is...

Please welcome Piers Warren as your judge for UWOL #15...

As the founder of the Wildeye International School of Wildlife Filmmaking, Piers is exceptionally suited as judge for our ANIMAL KINGDOM round...

Piers is well known throughout the wildlife film-making industry as the editor of Wildlife Film News and producer of wildlife-film.com, which he created in the 1990s. With a strong background in biology, education and conservation, he has had a lifelong passion for wildlife films and has a wide knowledge of natural history. He cut his teeth in the industry as a sound engineer and multi-media producer, running a studio for many years. He is one of the founders of the international organisation Filmmakers for Conservation and was Vice President for the first three years. Piers is the author of many magazine features and several books including Careers in Wildlife Film-making and Go Wild with Your Camcorder - How to Make Wildlife Films.

Ever-keen for adventure, Piers leads wildlife tours and training expeditions around the world. Amongst other things he has walked the African plains with Maasai Warriors, tracked tigers in India on elephant-back, explored the Amazon rainforest, swum with sharks, trekked across Tanzanian deserts on a camel and filmed cheetahs hunting in Kenya.

For more information on Piers, Wildeye, and the amazing work that his organization does, check out their website at Wildeye - About Us and Our Tutors

We also have Piers to thank for driving traffic to our little contest - he keeps a link in the "Training" section of Wildlife Film:

Wildlife-film.com - Wildlife Film Makers News and Information

Let him know how much we appreciate his contribution to our UWOL world...
