Environmental Film Foundation (AEFF): This NGO specialises
in making excellent feature length documentaries in East Africa
focusing upon important environmental issues. They had made a film
on the Great Ruaha River and therefore had a number of rushes,
not used in the final production, that were invaluable in this
project. We made specific requests for film on particular topics
to which Simon Trevor kindly responded. www.aeffonline.org
Sue Stolberger: Sue is a trustee of FORS and an artist living in the Ruaha National Park. As such she has first hand access to many of the issues and events that happen in and around the area and has an excellent archive of footage taken on her personal miniDV camera. She kindly made this available to use in this project.
As one of the foremost natural history film-makers in the world,
Alan has made many fantastic films. For many years now he has also
been translating and making copies of these and distributing them
for local educational use around East Africa. He was also recently
the winner of the Wildscreen Filmmakers for Conservation Award. So
we were very pleased when he
& Richard Brock: As founder of the Brock Initiative, Richard offered up all his footage for use in all Brock Initiative projects. Although not specific to the area, it has proved invaluable, covering virtually any ecosystem and animal around. This flexibility means, for example, that you can edit-in international examples within a local film, thus really enriching the final product. Needless to say Richard has also, except for local logistic costs, financially backed the entire project. Without his support and vision, this project would have never have happened and so we are eternally grateful to him.
