About

The Wolves of Isle Royale

Isle Royale is situated 53 miles out into Lake Superior, the worlds largest body of fresh water and is only accessible via ferry or sea plane for a select few months each year. Isle Royale is the ONLY National Park that is an island and it just happens to be home to several packs of Timber Wolves and numerous moose. It is a unique situation in a unique habitat. A virtual Galapagos in the United States. The terrain is rugged and exposed to the wildly changing weather of Lake Superior.

If I can get funded I want to spend 5-7 days during the summer of 2011 on the island producing a multimedia documentary to be distributed to public schools starting in the state of Michigan, and hopefully to others around the country. My aim is to educate children on the dynamics of the wolf/moose relationship on this remote island, as well as showing them the beauty of the landscape this island offers. It will be mixed media utilizing HD video and high resolution still images. All media will be captured using dSLR’s, the documentary will then be burned on DVD’s and will be accompanied by a fact sheet or pamphlet outlining what is contained in the documentary as well as a license to freely reproduce and redistribute this for educational purposes. I also plan on making the documentary available as a digital download to expedite its availability to other school systems in other states.

The funding for this project will pay for the renting the following items required to complete the documentary.

A dSLR capable of recording HD Video, several lenses, camping equipment, travel expenses, production equipment, and post production supplies including blank DVD's, mailing supplies, labels etc. And of course the prints awarded to those who fund at reward receiving levels!

I currently own a lot of camera equipment but nothing capable of capturing high definition video at this time.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my proposal and look forward to your support.
