Kai Meyer - Assistant Producer / Director / Drone Cinematography
Kai moved from Germany to British Columbia, Canada in 2013 to pursue his studies in biology. He graduated with a degree specialization in Ecology/Animal Behaviour and completed his research thesis on marine mammals under the supervision of world-renowned scientists Dr. John Ford and Dr. Jane Watson.
As a marine mammal biologist for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada, Kai gathered countless hours in the field, spending his summers on research vessels working with virtually all marine mammal species in the Northwest Pacific. In 2018 he was a major part of ‘PRISMM’, Canada’s largest marine mammal survey on the west coast yet.
With a never-ending passion for bringing stories to life while working in the field, Kai joined River Road Films in 2018. Here he aims to combine years of TV production experience he gained back in Germany with the knowledge and skills he acquired as a biologist, and make natural history programs that fascinate, provoke, and inspire. Kai has worked on shows for Netflix, Discovery, Sky, National Geographic, Disney and CBC.
