Sharing the story of whales through collaborative media.

Dr Gianna Savoie is an award-winning documentary producer, writer, and professor with two decades of experience in natural history film-making and a penchant for powerful storytelling that has led her into some of the most critical conservation issues on the planet.

Trained as an environmental biologist, she pairs her love of science with the art of film-making to craft stories that not only inform, but deeply resonate. Her Emmy-nominated work has been featured on PBS, National Geographic, Discovery, and the BBC, as well as in theatrical documentaries and in print and web publications.

Dubbed The Mountain Mermaid, Gianna founded the Ocean Media Institute, a global, non-profit media collective that serves to enrich and expand the public's engagement in ocean science and conservation through innovative visual media and artistic approaches to ocean literacy. In her quest to 'pay it forward' and inspire the next generation of environmental storytellers, she is Director of Filmmaking in the Centre for Science Communication at the University of Otago.

In this presentation, Gianna discusses her work to bring the stories and science of whales to the public through collaborative media creation.
