Project Description

“Making of The Leopard Son” – Discovery Channel

What does it take to make a feature film about a young leopard growing up in Serengeti bush? Director Holly Stadtler spent six weeks following renowned wildlife cinematographer Hugo van Lawick and his crew to present this fascinating behind-the-scenes portrait. THE MAKING OF THE LEOPARD SON captures the dedicated crew’s efforts to film wildlife from a glider, to record sound from a hot air balloon, and to film leopard behavior from a custom built Landrover.
