The name "Forest Clay" originated as the moniker for Owner/Founder Eddie Roqueta's DIY music project in high school. Growing up in the suburbs of South Florida, Roqueta explored his curiosity for nature trudging through muddy swamps, observing the life around him, and translating his findings into experimental musical compositions. Over the years, Roqueta's expression of the natural world has changed from music to film, but his curiosity for the natural world remains unsatisfied.
In 2012, Eddie Roqueta created Forest Clay Productions as a tribute to the unshakeable curiosity he felt for nature at a young age. The goal for Forest Clay Productions is to share interesting, untold, and diverse stories about nature, wildlife, and people to a global online and broadcast audience using cutting edge cinematography and storytelling practices.
