Los Angeles-headquartered Ample Entertainment — co-founded by Ari Mark (pictured left) and Phil Lott (right) — is moving into blue chip natural history with the launch of its first dedicated natural history division, Ample Nature.

Ample is also partnering with professionals in the natural history space, including EP and BAFTA-winning cinematographer Sophie Darlington (Our Planet, Dynasties); writer David Fowler (Disney’s Born in China, Dolphin Reef); Emmy Award-winning underwater cinematographer Didier Noirot (Blue Planet); BAFTA- and Emmy-winning natural history cinematographer John Shier (Hostile Planet); and creature artist David Krentz (Walking with Dinosaurs).
