Expedition Chesapeake Director Takes Home 6 Giant Screen Awards

The Giant Screen Cinema Association (GSCA) presented its annual Achievement Awards this week at the GSCA International Conference and Trade Show in Austin, Texas. The awards are given each year to recognize excellence in filmmaking and marketing in the giant screen cinema industry.

Executive Producer for Expedition Chesapeake, John O’Connell, and Vice President of Science and IMAX Programs at Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, Steve Bishop, just returned from the GSCA conference and are happy to announce that Expedition Chesapeake Director, David Lickley, dominated the GSCA Awards for his film Born to Be Wild!

His credits include directing some of the most successful giant screen nature films of all time, including “Born to Be Wild,” “Bears,” and Jane Goodall’s “Wild Chimpanzees,” which won the Giant Screen Cinema Association’s Best Film for Lifelong Learning Award in 2002.
