At the top of the hour is One Lucky Elephant's Director Lisa Leeman and Producer Cristina Colissimo. Where does an elephant go after a life in the circus? Sixteen years have passed since circus producer David Balding adopted Flora, the orphaned baby African elephant he lovingly raised as part of his family and made the star of his show. We'll talk about the making of this film and how it changed their ways of thinking.

At half past, Taggart Siegel speaks with us about the making of Queen of The Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? This film is an in-depth investigation to discover the causes and solutions behind Colony Collapse Disorder; a phenomenon where honeybees vanish from their hives, never to return. Queen of The Sun follows the voices and visions of underrepresented beekeepers, philosophers, and scientists around the world, all struggling for the survival of the bees.

Starting at the 60 min mark, we will have the Director of Sustainability, Diane Wheeler, of the LEED Silver Second Line Studios in New Orleans talking about the first certified sustainable production space in the USA.
