Husband and wife team Melissa and David Rohm have more than three decades of experience behind the lens, and their passion for the natural world is what inspired them to launch WEF. Their goal is to make cause documentaries that educate, inform, and awe audiences, encouraging people to get involved with saving wild places and the living things that inhabit them.
They are currently working on film projects about the Golden Eagles of Greater Yellowstone's Big Horn Basin and a short film about threats to the Blackwater Canyon in West Virginia. They just finished the Flight 93 National Memorial DVD.
