EOC 092: The Science Communicators – Nate Dappen’s Path to Becoming a Science Filmmaker
4 days ago
Our guest on today’s show is science filmmaker Nate Dappen. Like many of the folks that we choose to profile on this show, Nate has a background in both science and art - he worked as a photographer while getting his PhD in evolutionary biology. As he was nearing the end of his graduate program him and a fellow graduate student, Neil Lossen, became interested in science filmmaking. they produced their first few films together soon after graduating, and never looked back!
I met Nate at this year’s International Wildlife Film Festival, where he won an award for his new film, Islands of Creation. I’m really excited about what Nate and his colleagues at Day’s Edge Productions are doing in the world of science and conservation filmmaking, and it is an honor to have him on the show!
