"Trapped" -- a film about camera trapping

Last year, Emily Narrow wrote to tell me she was making a film on camera trapping.

Emily is pursuing an MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State.

She wanted to use some critter photos from Camera Trap Codger, and of course I was happy to oblige.

She did a great job on that film, which captures the ups and downs of camera trapping.

Now she is busy with new projects.

"For my second year film", she writes, "I am coordinating with the National Park Service and the Yellowstone Association to make a film for them about Yellowstone in winter. That film should be finished around late spring/early summer. I'm also a junior producer on a science/natural history podcast called TERRA".

And with a touch of the ole camera trapper's blues to boot. Well done and welcome to the club.

Congratulations you are still teaching and influencing the young. Not always an easy thing to accomplish. Especially for us "old Codgers" .

I can totally identify with her! Fairly new to the camera trapping game, I've been through that sweet expectation, and that bitter let down. Very nicely done!
