The film takes the viewer on a tour of Pennsylvania’s natural and wild areas starting in the southwestern part of the state and circles around to the southeast, while covering the entire state, and pointing out important ecological features and their unique roles. The camera club members will find inspiration for photographing nature and the film will present natural photogenic locations in the Pennsylvania. The club members will also see how a story can be made into a film format by using still only still images and how these image are combined to form a single theme while promoting a plea for the protection and preservation of the subject. A club member can than apply this to projects they may want to develop and produce whether it be a small family event or a major social journalistic issue. During the question and answer period I’ll be very happy to answer any questions about the production of the project.

Additionally here is a link to my website which has some more information about the program.
