Emmy Award-winning prodco Passion Planet, a division of London factual producer Passion Pictures, has appointed Nick Stringer to the role of producer and director.
An award-winning wildlife producer and director with more than two decades of experience, Stringer will be tasked with working across Passion Planet’s specialist factual and natural history output. He is currently in development on a handful of ocean-focused projects that make up the company’s forthcoming series and productions.
“Nick gets his hands dirty both in the field and in the edit in order to tell wonderful natural history stories – he is an asset to the team,” said Passion Planet CEO Nick Southgate.
Stringer has previously spent more than 20 years in the field working as a director for British documentary studio Big Wave Productions. His past notable production credits include The Dolphins of Shark Bay and Turtle: The Incredible Journey.
Passion Planet recently walked away with an Emmy Award for Nic Brown’s feature-length documentary The Serengeti Rules in the outstanding nature documentary category during the 41st Annual News and Doc Emmy Awards.
Passion Planet’s recent output also includes the BBC special The Octopus in My House, and PBS’ H2O: The Molecule that Made Us, which will broadcast shortly on the BBC.
“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining Passion Planet,” added Stringer. “Their reputation for making award-winning shows with powerful stories and original narratives about important issues, is second to none.”
