David gives time to back jumbo conservation scheme

Gary Hodges with orphaned baby elephantMedia Services TV producer David Felber has completed work on Wild at Art – a documentary project that aims to raise more than £20,000 to support wildlife and conservation charities.

David donated his professional services to produce a DVD, which follows wildlife artist Gary Hodges (pictured left) through the creation of a new drawing from start to finish.

Wild at Art is presented and narrated by actress and conservationist, Rula Lenska.

The documentary starts at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s baby elephant orphanage in Nairobi where Gary Hodges captures photographic reference material to create a new drawing.

The documentary details the dedication and hard work that goes into rearing orphaned elephants.

The limited edition DVD, which will be sold to collectors of Gary Hodges art, gives an insight into how the artist creates his remarkable drawings and his passion for conservation. The DVD also includes a series of out-takes – one of which recently appeared on ITV’s It’ll Be Alright On The Night.
