When not shooting a feature length documentary this summer in rural North Carolina, George Desort is exploring and filming the 50 Lakes of Isle Royale for his latest independent project. The island has become a second home for Desort since joining the Isle Royale Wolf-Moose Study in 2005 as a filmmaker and photographer. His work has appeared in Audubon, National Geographic, Backpacker, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and PBS affiliates across the country. Fortunate Wilderness, the wolf and moose study of Isle Royale was a finalist at the 2009 International Wildlife Film Festival, and will be the featured film of the Arctic Film Festival at North House Folk School in 2011.
