BOZEMAN — A film made by a group of graduates of Montana State University’s Science and Natural Filmmaking program will lead off National Geographic’s second annual Big Cat Week at 6 and 9 p.m. Dec. 11 on the Nat Geo WILD channel. Grizzly Creek Films “Stalking the Mountain Lion with Casey Anderson,” leads off programming for the seven-night Big Cat Week series that features stories about nature’s fiercest felines and the people working to save them at 6 p.m. Sunday.

“American Cougar,” a film featuring Bozeman-based scientist Howard Quigley, follows. “Stalking” will repeat at 9 p.m. The members of Grizzly Creek Films will be on hand at a premiere event that begins at 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, at PUB 317 in Bozeman. “Stalking the Mountain Lion” is the latest one-hour television production from Grizzly Creek Films. Filmed in the backcountry outside Yellowstone National Park throughout the winter of 2010-11, “Stalking the Mountain Lion” features local residents Casey Anderson and cat tracker Tyler Johnerson as they track and film “the ghost of the Rockies.” The show blends high-speed imagery, advanced camera technology and compelling natural behavior.
