Katie Schular | Pangolins

With the childhood nickname “Bug Girl,” it’s no surprise that Katie grew up to be a wildlife filmmaker. She's always had a fascination with the natural world—a real love and admiration for all things wild. She has a particular interest in lesser-known and lesser-appreciated animals—those that don’t get put into movies or made into stuffed animals. Her recent film, Pangolin, traces the poaching and smuggling routes of the endangered pangolin, a small, scaly mammal that resembles an anteater. The film was recently nominated for the Short Award in Great Britain’s Wildscreen Festival and it recently won the Short Film Award at the American Conservation Film Festival. Pangolin required a lot of detective work, panglions need all the help they can get as they are one of the most illegally trafficked animals in the world. She produced the film during a yearlong fellowship in the Philippines, where she worked closely with local conservationists and wildlife organizations to identify and depict the plight of the endangered animal.
An advocate for the most at-risk species, Katie works at the nexus between science, empathy, and storytelling. A decade of working with partner organizations spanning six continents, including National Geographic, Smithsonian, BBC, The Wilderness Society, HBO and PBS has afforded her self-sufficiency in all aspects of production. As a recipient of the Henry Luce Fellowship, Katie spent more than a year in Southeast Asia collaborating with scientists and conservation organizations. As Founder and Head of Production for Coral & Oak Studios, Katie creates award-winning films which have accrued millions of views across social media and inspired tangible results on the ground. Her award-winning documentary, Pangolin has reached over 50 million people, winning six Best Short Awards and has been an important tool for conservation. Katie is a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art and Design and she currently lives and works in Washington DC with her husband and dog, Bullseye.
