Safety Update from Nepal and Bangladesh

Safety Update for WWF Trip

To all our friends aware we were filming in Bangladesh and Nepal over the last few weeks. We can report we managed to get back safely avoiding the serious flooding. Fortunately the second part of the field trip was cut short for unrelated reasons resulting in us not venturing outside of Kathmandu. This was extremely lucky for us as ALL the locations we planned to visit are now underwater with no road access, clean water or communications.

As our project was focusing on global flood prevention the work now seems more relevant than ever.

Our thoughts are with the millions of people who were not so fortunate.

Western media haven’t reported much information on the full extent of the flood. More information is available here

Smoke hoods save lives

We are really excited to announce we’ll be producing a series of short films in Nepal for our friends at Practical Action. This means the office will be officially closed for 2 weeks (14th – 26th October) and run by an answering machine. Emails may be picked up, however due to the remote locations we are filming in it’s likely there will be a delay in response.

We are supporting their smoke hood appeal and will be following a family as they deal with the health effects of cooking on an open fire inside the home.

Approximately 10 times more people die from smoke related illness than malaria. We find this statistic shocking and so we’re super happy that practical action has chosen to work with us on this great campaign.
