The founder and leader of the Animal Rescue Group Heiki Valner:
“My desire to start making a series and a magazine reporting on the joys and sorrows of different animal species dates back to 2008. As it was, though, my work as a reporter, my family, and attending to animals in need consumed all of my time and the idea was left collecting dust on the “Ideas and Dreams Awaiting Realization” shelf.
A few years ago I pulled myself together and did indeed finish my very first four episodes. There’s enough material to edit four more episodes as the summer long shoot produced quite a surplus of “crude material”. Yet, once again, I was buried under the needs of distressed animals and my animal stories never reached a wider audience. They probably never will as the stories are, by now, dated …
A series dedicated to animal health issues and providing advice and educational guidance to animal owners also lies in wait of being brought to life. Why not finally get these projects going!? This time around, bets would not be placed on TV but on the Internet, making us visible on computers and mobile phones. I don’t really feel like messing around with a mike and camera myself anymore but I am willing to lend a hand, heart and soul.
You don’t need to be a professional. I have been working in television for years and am there to provide any assistance and guidance until you’ll get a hang of it and are ready to proceed on your own. Naturally, qualities that you must already possess include a love of animals, eagerness for interpersonal communication, sincerity, no fear of public performance, a will to act, and a sense of mission. Proficiency in our beautiful native language, both in speech and writing, indeed only helps as well. We won’t get to this project before next year but do think about it and weigh it out – if you think you have what it takes to film, edit, and report, do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org“
You say that you really care?
Hopefully, these are not just empty words!
