This is a long term project, definitely not one that is wrapped. Conservancies are always built around compromise, whether it be between cattle, people, tourism, hunting and wildlife, there are always challenges. These films, and the ones still in production, are raising awareness for these struggles, whilst also humanising the different sides.
Camera operated and edited by George Leakey.
Voiceover by Nic Kershaw.
In partnership with Alex Walker's Serian and Conservancy Guardians.
Kokoto - Live Slow, Ride Fast
Four friends. Some former Tour de France riders, some relatively new to the competitive scene go out on an adventure. The aim of this project was to keep it as close to action as possible, and as I was filming other things, they asked for just some pick up shots and interviews.
Produced by LSRF.
The Last Two
A short film looking at the aftermath of Sudan's death and the remaining two female Northern White Rhinos in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya.
Shot, directed and edited by George Leakey. Voiceover and character by James Mwenda.
