American naturalist and TV presenter Casey Anderson (pictured) has launched VisionHawk, a prodco set to focus on wildlife-based programming.
The Montana-based indie’s programming slate will be driven by blue chip experiences through “authentic, cinematic and science-inspired storytelling.” The prodco will specialize in Ultra HD 6K and the latest in gyro stabilization technology, which allows filmmakers to capture wild animals from the air, land or sea through unshakeable camera stability.
Anderson has more than 20 years of experience in wildlife filmmaking, having previously hosted and exec produced Nat Geo Wild’s Expedition Wild and America the Wild with Casey Anderson. He is also the founder, director and co-owner of the Montana Grizzly Encounter Rescue and Educational Sanctuary, aiding in the rescue of grizzly bears from poor captivity situations while furthering the study of the species.
The prodco’s first project is a five-part docuseries that has been commissioned by CuriosityStream, the world’s first SVOD service dedicated to non-fiction entertainment, which today (September 30) launched to customers worldwide following its U.S. roll-out in March.
“VisionHawk brings together a rock star team of experienced professionals with the very best in today’s technology to give audiences and executives what they’re looking for: dynamic, untold stories filmed in a jaw-dropping cinematic style,” said Anderson in a statement. “They’ll be compelling visual journeys into the unknown, designed to draw in new viewers and inspire the next generation to care for the natural world.”
