NATURE | Frogs: The Thin Green Line | Making the Film | PBS

Duration: 07:51


Allison Argo, the filmmaker behind “Frogs: The Thin Green Line,” discusses the making of the film in this Web-exclusive video. From the construction of an artificial pond set, to seeing the effects of the chytrid fungus first-hand, Allison describes the challenges she encountered in this project. With one-third of amphibian species threatened with extinction, Allison thinks the story of frogs “is probably the most important environmental story of our time.”
