NEIL LOSIN, PhD | Owner / Producer

Neil Losin is a biologist, photographer, and filmmaker based in Miami, Florida. Neil earned his Ph.D. in UCLA’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in 2012, studying the evolution of territorial behavior in invasive lizards in Florida and the Caribbean. In 2010, Neil co-founded Day’s Edge Productions with fellow biologist Dr. Nate Dappen. Since then, Neil and Nate have produced films for clients like National Geographic, World Wildlife Fund, TRAFFIC, University of Miami, National Science Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and others. Their award-winning short film Snows of the Nile chronicles their 2013 expedition to re-capture historical photos of tropical glaciers in Uganda’s Rwenzori Mountains, creating a visual record of a century of climate change. Their first 1-hour film – Islands of Creation, to be broadcast in 2015 – is a documentary about how new species originate, filmed on location in the Solomon Islands. Nate and Neil also teach film production skills to fellow scientists through immersive workshops at universities and research centers.

MORGAN HEIM
Producer

MORGAN HEIM | Producer

Morgan Heim has been sneezed on by a whale, stampeded by bison and almost mistaken for salmon by hungry grizzly bears, all of which she took as great compliments, considering they let her live to spy on wildlife for another day. With a background in zoology (BS) and environmental journalism (MA), Morgan employs photo and filmmaking techniques ranging from aerials to camera traps and good old-fashioned photojournalism in order to share human stories of the natural world. She is an Associate Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, (iLCP), on the board of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) and alum of the prestigious Missouri Photo Workshop. Her work has appeared in the Banff Mountain Film Festival, as an official select in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and in such outlets as Smithsonian, National Parks, National Geographic NewsWatch, GEOLino Extra, NPR.org, The Nature Conservancy and High Country News. Morgan currently resides in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband Philipp and their tree-climbing dog, Javier.
