"My father's television series, Marty Stouffer's Wild America, set out to educate and entertain the world on the subject of North American Wildlife 33 years ago. It has successfully done so since it first premiered on PBS in 1980s, creating 120 half-hour Programs and 12 one-hour Specials that make up the award-winning Film Series “Wild America”. My father has served as both an entertainer and educator and he has been the subject of interviews, articles, television programs, feature films, and books.
Our goal is to future proof this national treasure, by ReMastering all 120 Programs of The “Wild America” Film Collection in 4K Ultra HD and to bring it to as many educational institutions across the US as possible. Because “Wild America” was shot on Film, we can use the original negatives to make a new 4K scan on today’s state-of-the-art equipment. This will create a true 4K digital copy and will increase the color saturation, fidelity, resolution and sharpness with a subtlety of light that cannot be accomplished in Standard Definition or even High-Definition.
We hope to continue this educational experience for all those kids who now have kids, that grew up watching Marty teach them through the television screen. The "Wild America" Film Collection documents the behavior of virtually every representative North American Mammal, Bird, Fish, and Reptile, as well as the Natural Wonders and Scenic Beauty of the North American Wilderness. This spectacular and irreplaceable Collection - the most comprehensive Film Library in existence on the subject - is the quintessential Natural History Video Encyclopedia of our entire living continent. There is simply nothing else like it in existence!
You may have even seen the show before or are an existing fan... If not I’d like to invite you to explore and Enjoy our Wild America." —Hannah Stouffer
