Ateles Films - Ambassadors
Leofoto & Think Tank
Wildlife and Natural History Filmmakers
Michael Sanderson and An a Luisa Santos are professional filmmakers specialising in nature and documentary films for cinema and television. Together as Ateles Films, they film around the world in exotic and distant wildernesses, for various channels and clients including NHK, France Televisions, Terra Mater, BBC and National Geographic. Travelling deep into rainforests, high mountains and deserts, they take their specialized camera equipment with them to tell the stories about the wildlife in these extraordinary locations.
Ana and Michael are ambassadors for Think Tank and Leofoto. In their film projects, they need equipment that is stable, strong, ergonomic, light materials and safe. Leofoto and Think Tank offer all of this together. Leofoto tripods give the needed stability when filming and light weight when mobility is important. The Think Tank bags offer safe transport and protection when they travel around the world, especially to rough and wild places. Working in inhospitable areas makes it even more important that the camera bags and tripods are of the best quality.
