Location: South Africa

Hi Luke, can you tell us a little about your background and upbringing? What inspired you to be a filmmaker?
I was born in South Africa in Johannesburg. When I was a child we moved to Mpumalanga. Our farm bordered the Kruger National Park so every spare moment we'd be in the park watching wildlife. Later I moved to Durban on the east coast of South Africa where my love for the ocean was born. Currently I have a base in SA and London.
I worked as a game ranger for 2 years in private game reserves in SA. Living in the bush is an incredible, beautiful experience so the leap to recording images is natural progression really. I studied Film and TV for 3 years and concentrated on making programmmes that challenge peoples perceptions. This was the difficult part. Today I work as a freelance DOP/ Director.

Who are your personal heroes?
My hero would have to be Nelson Mandela- a saint of a man who after 27 years in prison came out with no anger in his heart. And orchestrated a peaceful change of power-a miracle!

One Day On Earth thanks Luke Cormack for agreeing to join us on 10.10.10 to film his passions.

All the Best,
The One Day On Earth Team
