A short film about the work of ETATU, a UK registered charity working to improve educational capacity, particularly for girls, in and around the coastal communities of Msambweni in Kenya.

Community-owned Conservancies are part of a vital network of wildlife corridors used by East Africa’s big animals, and provide sanctuary for a huge variety of wildlife, as well as directly benefiting the local people. This short documentary highlights the fragile nature of their ecosystem and the delicate balance involved in conserving wildlife alongside the open cattle ranches.

A short film highlighting the work of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, a pioneering legal advocacy NGO based in Hanoi, Vietnam that rescues child victims of trafficking and street children, and provides them with long term care & support.

His final product is excellent, and extremely useful for our organisation to illustrate and explain the complexity of what we do. What impressed me most, though, was how easy Rupert made the process of creating the film. From the way he structured the interview, to the preparation he undertook prior to coming, Rupert’s professionalism made the film making process incredibly straightforward - and fun!
