Natural History AP -AVAILABLE

With a background in graphics, animation, zoology and conservation (MSc.) I now combine my interests mainly in natural history TV but also travel/adventure/other genres.

Starting out in animation, I have a storytelling background. I then retrained and worked in wildlife research and conservation for over 10 years including working abroad, in the UK and in both office and remote field conditions. My diverse background has given me a varied portfolio of skills along with a strong network of wildlife contacts around the world.

I have a particular interest in conservation, wildlife behaviour, communication, science, travel, adventure and children’s TV/filming projects. I’m an enthusiastic, reliable, easy going and friendly team member offering practical and creative support to wildlife productions and am keen to gain more writing/producing/directing experience.

Key skills
In depth knowledge and experience working with wildlife and conservation issues particularly in Africa and the UK, research/development of ideas for various channels, edit producing/producing/directing, live OBs, setting up and providing practical support for UK and overseas shoots, liaising with people at various levels and nationalities, living and working in small teams in remote locations.

Kristina has been a highly valued member of the Springwatch, Autumnwatch, Winterwatch team for over 12 months. Her natural history knowledge is invaluable and her diligence and attention to detail excellent. She is one of the most supportive and inclusive team members I have worked with and I would see her as asset to any team upon which she worked. During her time with the series she directed and edited a number of natural history films - both animal led and presenter led. The results were lovely and all her films were included in the transmitted programmes and added value to the content across the series.
