"The purpose of this thesis is to provide a general guide on filming animals and how to adapt filmmaking practices to the wide variety of scenarios that it demands. It goes in depth to answer questions and bring up things worth considering when planning to shoot wildlife as well as inform the reader of techniques and practices which will not only streamline the process as much as possible but also promote safety. This thesis references techniques I have learned from researching professional wildlife filmmakers as well as my personal experience to demonstrate how to adapt to different scenarios shooting wildlife."
