Community-based Biodiversity Conservation Films

CBCF is currently a conservation filmmaking Not-for-profit limited company, running in and among Kenyan and Tanzanian Indigenous Communities rich in Biodiversity but poor in resources.


Project Achievements 2008-2009

Over 80 young conservationists have been trained in filmmaking in more than seven film-making workshops at field camps in East Africa – Olkiramatian (Kenya’s South Rift), Mkuru (in the shadow of Tanzania’s Mt Meru), Lake Bogoria and Lake Naivasha (two lakes in Kenya’s Rift Valley; each twice). The training pattern is for two weeks intensive fieldwork teaching the principals of camera work and digital editing, using Final Cut Pro on Apple Macintosh laptops, to be followed a few weeks later by an intensive further week’s classroom editing. All the 2008 trainees were given a further week of intensive training in storytelling/ script writing, which was repeated later in 2009.
