The Nelson family, who founded and run Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, have been taking trips to Africa to bring the experience home to their guests for years. After cutting several shortform documentaries for them, I enjoyed the opportunity to let a single story develop over a 22 minute runtime.
The climb up Mount Kilimanjaro is their most adventurous challenge yet. Amazing mountain climbing footage and real drama captured by the team here- very proud to be a part of it and very happy with how well this story turned out in the editing room.
A second longform story was a very different quest- traveling across the Serengeti in search of The Great Migration. Martin, Chris, Tom & team captured some amazing and incredibly unique nature and scenic footage here (leopards! lions! rhinos!) that will work perfectly as paid media on travel channels.
