In 2015, Filipe won National Geographic’s “Wild to Inspire” short film competition and was invited to help shoot documentaries in Africa with National Geographic.

His show, Untamed with Filipe DeAndrade, premiered in 2017 National Geographic WILD’s YouTube Channel.  With a crew of three, DeAndrade and his team have traveled across the United States in a repurposed ambulance filming in Florida, South Carolina, Louisiana, and New Mexico. They’ve had close encounters with crocodiles, mountain lions, coyotes, monkeys, birds, and an 87-pound snapping turtle. Currently, DeAndrade continues to capture incredible phenomena through his series.
