Filming in Zimbabwe

My team and I have just completed a few days filming and photographing in Zimbabwe for MIET Africa, an educational non-profit organisation that helps Ministries of Education strengthen syllabus and schooling systems on the continent.

The project is an interesting one in that it’s focus is on youth agency in #Africa… the need to give young people on the continent a bigger space at the table when it comes to the educational decisions that are made on their behalf. Our job, as a team of filmmakers, was to interview these young students at (multiple locations), and get authentic, unscripted responses to important questions, making sure not to have the technical elements of the #filming and #photography get in the way in the natural spontaneity of the answers.

You can probably see from the picture above that we like to keep our #camera kit small… we do this for a number of reasons, quick set ups, easy to run around with and fewer explanations needed for airport customs officials. Another big factor of using set up (#sonyA7Siii cameras) is the convergence of film and photo they offer.

Time to pack the cameras and gear and prepare for the next leg of our shoot in #Zambia. A big thanks to everyone who made filming in Zimbabwe such a pleasure.
