WildSides


An Award-Winning Documentary and Educational Multimedia Non-Profit.

Create.    Educate.    Empower.

WildSides is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to creating educational and documentary multimedia to help us rise above conflict, explore common ground and identify solutions to help make our world a better place. Our work can apply to many issues, but we chose to begin with humans and wildlife to see where it takes us. We use film, podcasts, social media and internet-based content to celebrate our differences, while highlighting our similarities. In a world laden with conflict, we have found this to be a better way to approach our disagreements. Together, we can build a more understanding world!

Three Primary Initiatives Throughout 2018 & 2019:

Case Study: Red Wolf Conflict

This multimedia project is an update of our 2012 work. It will explore human and wildlife stories on all sides of the conflict over the endangered red wolf, while identifying similarities among everyone. We explore the social, economic, scientific and other aspects of food, family, health, nature & more.

ALS, Environment & Wildlife

Building from the success of our documentary, Staring Down Fate, WildSides is developing educational multimedia delving into a new "Human-Wildlife Common Ground" project: environmental issues connected with human neurodegenerative diseases (like ALS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's) and wildlife health.

Youth Storytellers

WildSides is developing this new program to teach storytelling to our youth. The purpose is to:

1) Teach our youth a skill set that will help them in school, life and their future; 2) encourage understanding and empathy for other perspectives; and 3) create a mentor network to help our youth on their road to success.

STARING DOWN FATE: Our Award-Winning Feature Documentary  

Four years of filming about the endangered red wolf issue took a drastic turn in 2015. Chris Lucash, a red wolf biologist, was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). The following two years resulted in this film. Staring Down Fate is a documentary film about searching for purpose in life and in mortality; about finding inspiration in the face of uncertainty. It is a story about 7.4 billion people and our relationship with nature, told through one person's life - Chris Lucash. This intimate, timely and deeply personal film inspires us to live our lives with purpose.
