As an associate producer on this project, I was assigned to research and make cold calls to find compelling stories for this documentary. There were a variety of animals in need of prosthetics - from cats, dogs, an alligator and even birds. I coordinated all travel plans and logistics for shoots in seven different cities, and traveled to most shoots as a field producer. It was so rewarding to build relationships with the warm caretakers and creative prostheticians dedicated to helping these animals live normal lives again. I also cut additional content to feature on the PBS Nature website, seen above.
