About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

His hope is that we will fall back in love with planet Earth if we start listening. In lyrical short film Being Hear, filmmakers Palmer Morse and Matt Mikkelsen capture Hempton in his element as he shares the importance of preserving the silence. To experience the full range of nature's orchestra, headphones are highly recommended.
