Escape to Nature – film and photography production a project which has won over seventy awards at international film festivals in the Czech Republic and abroad.
Libor Spacek and Petra Dolezalova – travelers, filmmakers, professional photographers, divers, and environmentalists.
Libor and Petra´s similar interests and perception of nature influenced them enough to create a long term project called „Escape to Nature“. „We put all our knowledge and skills into our movies, photos and articles, which should show our audience the hidden depths of nature. We are meticulous about the quality of photographic and film footage, focusing not only on the beauty but also the fragility of life on our blue planet. We would like to contribute to the preservation of our planet with our work.“
As experienced divers Petra and Libor also focus on the underwater world. During their expeditions to the mountains, forests and other remote places on our planet, they know how to capture the uniqueness of the nature they see and local people they meet. Their films, photos and videos are spiced up by real life stories and background details of their mutual work.
The previews from their expeditions are published on this website and also in social and travel magazines, exhibitions, lectures and workshops. From larger footage the authors create documentaries for TV broadcasting in the Czech Republic and abroad, short videos for web presentations, advertisments, adjusted large-format photographs, calenders, books etc.
Specialization: complete production of documentary films, music videos, commercials, including filming under water or in the sky using remote controlled drones (UAS).

What we’re looking for the next project in the near future?
We are looking for an experienced Co-producer for negotiation with Partners, Sponsors, Investors and Donators for our new long-term project Escape to Nature (the series of ten documentaries for 4K television channels). The Co-producer will work closely with the director and the producer of the project.
A successful candidate should be an excellent communicator with great creativity, has interesting contacts beyond the borders of the Czech Republic. He should be help to bring finance to the project, prepare legal contracts with partners, sponsors or donors. He will participate on logistics of shooting locations. The knowledge of the control of film equipment is not a necessity, but an advantage. We prefer a candidate who has experience with film production abroad and has good contacts with potential partners, the television channels that should be broadcasting our films.
We can discuss about compensation based on budget of the project (We do not require direct participation in the post-production). Our goal is to create films focusing on the beauty nature and its conservation, wildlife under and above sea, culture and customs of the natives during visited destinations. We want to produce films that are visually stunning. Matter of course is shooting in 4K resolution above and under the water surface and from the air by drones (UAS).
We have a plan to stay in the Pacific on a catamaran for most of the months of the year for future five years. The rest of the time we want to devote ourselves to full postproduction and processing of the filmed footage. The main part of the project is planned for shooting the Pacific Islands but we do not exclude to go to the eastern part of Indonesia. We offer the opportunity to co-producers, partners and sponsors to personally participate on the project and stay on the catamaran with us during filming according to pre-arranged terms.
