Director: Dietmar Nill
In 2005, the animal photographer Dietmar Nill started working on nature documentaries. For his first camera work on ‘Bats – wait until dark’ he and Volker Arzt received a camera award and the Heinz Sielmann Award at international animal and nature film festivals. He is specifically adept at filming raptors and bats. He has once again teamed up with Klaus Weissmann for the production of ‘Return of the Peregrine Falcon’ and ‘The Journey of the Snow Owls’.
Director: Klaus Weißmann
From early childhood on Klaus Weissmann’s passion has been watching animals and nature. The trained biologist works as a freelance author and cameraman. Starting in 1998 he has been producing documentaries focused on nature and species, science and expeditions for German’s public service broadcasting channels. With every new project he tries to find the right mixture of ‘infotainment’ and takes a humorous approach in order to awaken his audience’s interest in animals and nature.
