Big Cat Rescue Media Producer Wanted
We have loved having Chris Poole as our media producer for the past 6 years, but he and his wife are moving to California on August 30, 2014.

In 2008 we were the 6th most popular Non Profit on YouTube with 111,000 views. By 2014 we had 81,918,219 views. We aren't just looking for someone who Read More

Yesterday was EPIC for big cats!
Our Senate bill S1381 had a hearing and the only oral suggestion made by anyone in the room was that the exemptions be more narrow to insure that the bad guys don't manage to slip through the cracks to deal in big cats. Passing the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act will end so much suffering! Champaign was flowing last night!

Through Glass Video Thru July 4 2014
I love Google Glass because it can give YOU a view of what it is like to run a big cat sanctuary from my purr-spective; up close and purr-sonal. But it doesn't record in HD, so if I try to edit video captured with Glass and video captured from my iPhone, which is high def, it produces a finished product that is not high def.
Maybe that is because I use iMovie. I need to learn Final Cut Pro, but it makes sense that you can't record in 720 and produce Read More
