Howard Jackson (director, writer) spent more than 3 years as field director on the Road to Tamworth shooting solo in over 100 regional towns for segments broadcast weekly on the Country Music Channel, Australia. In the latter half of the 2000s he has concentrated on directing, filming and editing environmental pieces on engaging communities, funded with grants by the State and Federal Governments. Jackson has numerous writing and stage directing credits including plays at the Belvoir and the Sydney Theatre Company. Ten of his twenty years of teaching filmmaking was spent teaching Australian Aboriginal filmmakers at Eora College. Recently he wrote the screenplay for Jammin in the Middle E (SBS TV, Australia) and co-wrote the animation feature Trouble Down Under (presently in preproduction).
The biggest problem is that nobodys ever heard of them. Even people in Sabah have not heard about the Bornean sun bear. Since they have never heard of them, they cant care so we thought thats one thing we can help.
