Geoff Luck, filmmaker/Executive Producer at National Geographic Television, reveals how his experience with filming elephants in Botswana taught him that by seeing ourselves as just another animal species, we can develop a richer way to live with every living being on the planet.

Geoff Luck is a filmmaker who has produced, directed, shot or edited more than a hundred programs for National Geographic over the past decade. His award-winning work on nature, science and culture has also been featured on PBS, Discovery, The Sundance Channel, Showtime, and showcased at the Museum of Modern Art. He holds degrees in filmmaking from Harvard University and the San Francisco Art Institute and currently lives in Amsterdam with his wife and two daughters.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
