Dennis Harris and Wendy Christensen have built lives around a vocation many people never even consider: taxidermy. Harris owns a studio in rural Michigan where he constructs gravity-defying suspension mounts, and Christensen is one the few remaining full-time museum taxidermists in the country.  Both are fixtures at the biennial World Taxidermy Competition.  Taxidermists is a window into an often overlooked but surprisingly vibrant world of art, science, and competition.

  1. This was an incredibly good short film. I really enjoyed it, especially since I admired Wendy’s work in the museum setting for decades and also Dennis’. There were so many interesting topics touched on ever so briefly in this film that could have been expounded in a feature-length documentary.
