Changing the Narrative

2021-10-06T09:35:43+00:00

We have been the only Africans making wildlife documentaries in Africa for some time, but we are changing this through new partnerships that will catalyze the industry. In July, WildlifeDirect received a special package, a RED Komodo camera from Red Digital Cinema in the USA. We thank Brian Henderson, the Director Global Business Development at RED for making this possible. This is one of the most sought after cameras in the wildlife film industry and is an essential part of our filming toolkit.
