The Ark

8 Aug

A film I Directed, my talented brother Joel Redman shot and the excellent Tim Lewis produced.

In the face of rising extinction rates in animal species, The Frozen Ark Project aims to collect and save tissue containing DNA from creatures facing extinction and to store these valuable specimens for posterity.

I made the film because it helped me to legitimise some of the thoughts I was having about my approach to conservation. With the conservation world increasingly justifying itself on an economic basis, it was liberating to hear Professor Bryan Clarke talking about how it’s not only possible but perfectly legitimate to be motivated to conserve simply because nature, in all its many and varied forms, is beautiful.

I hope it encourages more people to talk about conservation based on emotion rather than reducing the magnificence of the natural world to nothing more than its perceived economic value and possible financial benefits.

This film was intended to be part of a longer film on an endemic amphibian species but that was difficult to justify to commissioners, so we made this, and it helped to calcify some things in my head. Enjoy
