I'm Laurie Hedges

I make films in order to advance wildlife conservation efforts across the globe. Otherwise I may be surfing, snowboarding or adventuring in the wild. Formally I am trained as a wildlife biologist, but since 2017, I have been working directly with conservation groups to produce films to advance conservation goals.

It is my sincere belief that film is a powerful tool to lobby for change, raise funding, gather awareness to issues, spread messages to a global audience or educate stakeholders to concepts.


In order to bring about change, we need to get better at telling stories. Films have been a medium by which to do this for over a century, and have been adopted by almost every sector of society. Its power in using emotion to effect change is apparent in the movements it has been integral to. Conservation deserves to have access to this medium - whether an explainer animation or a short documentary. Get in touch and let's hatch some ideas.
