The first sparks of Wildfire were struck in 2008, when eco architect and film maker Leonie Mervis, created Ecobuzz an online TV channel to explore the use of new media and film as a way of sharing green ideas and encouraging environmental action.
Today Wildfire consists of a dynamic professional team of film makers, designers and environmental educators, volunteers and activists who are passionate about creating a better world for all. They bring to each project a deep understanding of environmental issues and their skills in viral video campaigns, documentary films, environmental education initiatives and digital design.
– film maker, designer & eco architect, established Wildfire to bring together a group of professionals who could use their skills in design & film to create a better world.
