Treasures of the Regions

In Africa there is no shortage of distance and natural phenomena.  From the majestic waterfalls and untouched desert plains of Southern Africa all the way to North Africa where the Atlas Mountains separate the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline from the famous sand dune fields of the Sahara Desert. There are great distances that stretch from West Africa – the storyteller region – home to ancient Baobab trees that have witnessed centuries of history and have integrated with folklore, all the way across the continent to East Africa. Here you can discover the African Great Lakes, coastlines that are peppered with lazy Indian Ocean beach resorts and island locations as well as immense safari plains that host countless world-renowned wildlife documenting options. Central Africa proudly straddles the Equator with the great Congo River roaring through the region like a powerful lifeline.  The Congo River Basin offers a dense species richness which makes it a filmmaker’s oasis and even to this day large sections of the area remain virtually unstudied.
