The main use for a video in a park environment is to educate. They are utilized in video kiosks and park theatres but can also be sold in gift shops and put on websites. Videos are a great way to get an environment message across in a pleasant way. Videos are also utilized by parks to orient visitors to the parks trail system and what to look for along the way.
Jeff Hall has been filming Florida Parks for over 15 years. Starting with a film of some 135 Florida State Parks, this independently produced video guide was a labor of love. It took 2 years to film and edit and was sold by many of the State Parks for years. For over 10 years Jeff was a volunteer SCUBA Diver at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, helping to maintain the underwater Observatory under the watchful eyes of the resident manatees. He has produced dozens of environmental video pieces which mostly appeared on the TV show “Florida Naturally”.
He has produced Kiosk films for Florida Caverns state park, Homosassa Springs State Park, the Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve and has filmed segments with the National Wildlife refuge and the University of Florida in a number of locations.
