    Speechless Concept:
    I want to share some of these phenomenal remote spots that I'm incredibly lucky to visit on my expeditions and make them feel as real as possible to portray the experience.

    So I've decided that maybe the best way to do this is strip down the video, with raw footage only; No music, no David Attenborough, no fancy editing and no touching up. As it was on the day.

    And maybe, with no one telling you what to think and no music to stir the emotions, maybe it will be quite refreshing, and a lot more real?

    Stay tuned for the feature documentary: Speechless : The Polar Realm

  2. A powerful award winning documentary on the Northern Gateway Pipeline proposed to stretch from the tar sands to the Great Bear Rainforest on the coast of British Columbia. The film shows the splendor of nature and first nation culture threatened by tar sands export through world renown photographers and beautiful imagery. The film was created as a tool to educate and inspire. Please share it through social media, film screenings, film festivals and with your friends. It highlights the beauty we all want to protect but that Big Oil will sacrifice for short term gain. Go to pacificwild.org to help protect this beautiful place and BalanceMedia.tv for updates and current projects from the filmmaker.

  3. It was many years ago since I first visited Chile and Patagonia and fell in love with this spectacular country. I wanted to make a film to show this awesome land to as many people as possible, pretty sure that, unfortunately, Chile is still not as well known as it deserves. This short film is just the first step of the journey... Hope you like it as much as I did filming it.

  5. iLCP Fellow Ralph Lee Hopkins set out to tell the story of the Galápagos Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site protected for all humanity. He wanted to make photographic images that capture this fragile eco-region, its rich biodiversity, the people who live on the islands, and the threats the archipelago faces today.
    During many consecutive trips to the Galápagos, Ralph found the threats and the challenges: unsustainable development; overfishing; invasive species; increased tourism, and a rift between decision-makers and those who live on the islands. He also found a network of international conservation groups working with Galapagueños who are passionate about saving a place they love. Today, new coalitions are improving environmental education; organic farming; recycling; GPS tagging of sharks and other sensitive species; high-tech monitoring of the Marine Reserve, and enforcement of environmental laws.

    The Alliance team included Associate Producer, Writer, and Field Interviewer, Carol Ann Bassett; iLCP Director of Communications and Production Jenny Nichols; videographer Jeff Litton, and Ralph Lee Hopkins, who created the Alliance Project with the iLCP to produce this documentary. One outcome of the Alliance is “Voices of the Galápagos.” The film showcases the people who live on the Galápagos Islands and highlights their perspectives, goals, and on-going efforts to preserve the place they call home.
