We’re excited to be the first to share with you our 2018/19 National Geographic Live series! Lovingly called Nat Geo Live, this is a series of inspirational, and informative presentations that cover topics from film making to photography to environmental issues. We look forward to experiencing four new stories with you.
The explorers featured in the upcoming season takes us deep in our oceans to territories high and far and share many breathtaking views from the highest of mountains.
Mark Synnott is a man ever on the brink of new discovery. A big wall rock-climber of the highest order, he’s made legendary first ascents of some of the world’s tallest, most forbidding walls, from Baffin Island to Pakistan. Today, he uses his skills to break scientific ground, reaching incredibly inaccessible environments in search of rare species. It’s all in the spirit of adventure and exploration in order to educate about these sites of strange, remote beauty.
When filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade won Nat Geo WILD’s WILD TO INSPIRE short film competition in 2015, he never dreamed that the opportunity would lead to his own wildlife series. However, his winning short film, “ Adapt,” left audiences and judges moved and inspired, proving to Nat Geo WILD just how much experience and unmistakable talent the aspiring filmmaker possessed. Now, DeAndrade’s dream of using his passion for filmmaking to showcase his love for wildlife has become a reality. A native of Brazil, nature courses through his veins. DeAndrade’s main mission behind his work is to inspire others to fall in love with the wild. He believes that when you love something, you fight to protect it.
Explore rarely seen undersea worlds with two photographers creating a visual voice for the world’s oceans. David Doubilet is a legend in underwater photography. Together with his wife and underwater partner, photojournalist Jennifer Hayes, he has explored three unique marine environments for National Geographic. Join them to explore the rich and diverse waters of Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea, part of the “coral triangle.” Follow them into the world beneath the Antarctic ice, then north to the Gulf of St. Lawrence to see whales, wolfish, and harp seals. Together, they’ll go beyond the published stories to share the reality of “behind-the-camera” adventures.
For extreme filmmaker Bryan Smith, the line between going for it and going too far is often blurry—especially when you’re exploring the earth’s most remote environments. In this edge-of-your-seat presentation, Bryan shows you what it means to adventure with purpose, and why he believes the best expeditions are the ones with a healthy chance of failure. He’s faced machete-wielding locals in Papua New Guinea, suffered frostbite during the first-ever ice climb of Niagara Falls, explored the South Pacific’s deepest canyons, and scaled North America’s tallest mountains to bring you behind the scenes and capture the impossible.
