About Elam Stoltzfus:
Cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus’s freelance films and awarded environmental documentaries have been shown on ABC, CNN, PBS and Weather Channel. As part of a team of leading naturalists documenting the proposed Florida Wildlife Corridor for PBS, Stoltzfus’ journey brought him through the very heart of the state, from the southern tip of the Everglades to Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp.

During his journey of 1,000 miles made over 100 consecutive days, he determined that his next film project would focus on one of the world’s rarest ecosystems, the Coastal Dune Lakes of Walton County.  Stoltzfus returns to the area as E2C’s Visiting Artist and Scholar to produce a one-hour HD documentary intended to raise public awareness and help preserve this valuable ecosystem.  Currently working with scientists in Florida, New Zealand and Australia, he will interview area tourism experts, historians and naturalists to create a strong educational value for a national audience. Stoltzfus, who was honored as guest speaker at FSU’s 2013 commencement ceremony, will screen his film The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition at The REP Theatre and Walton County Schools.
