Behind the Scenes:
The assignment to capture this experience on film proved an amazing journey for untitled cinematographer, Abraham Joffe. With his experience in wildlife and documentary production, he was up to the task to tackle the epic size of the shoot – solo.
Abraham: “This project was an hugely rewarding one. Every day was a new adventure full of glorious landscapes and wildlife. What was really brilliant is the fact that I got to really live the iconic images experience and therefore felt very comfortable in helping translate that to screen. Many thanks to Denis Glennon for allowing me the freedom to shoot this journey as I saw fit and to Shem Compion and Jay Collier for their fantastic support. Thank you also to the great clients who where so accepting and enthusiastic of my inclusion on this safari.
