Our dream is to shoot a documentary about Gorilla Conservation in Kibale, Uganda. The film will look at the impact of the current tourism market on the Kibale National Forest, and investigate how the government uses tourist money to aid in conservation. Along our journey to find out how Uganda's government appropriates tourist funds, we will highlight the ancient Batwa People, exploring their removal from the forest and how it westernized their culture.
This project will take about one week to film, and will happen in a remote part of Uganda with a team of two videographers.
This documentary will aim to give global tourists an insight into what goes on in Uganda when it comes to the conservation of the last remaining wild African Mountain Gorillas.
The amount of money tourists spend on this life-changing experience is exorbitant - a single permit that allows you to observe the Gorillas is US $600 for 1 Hour. So we have to wonder, is it the government using this money for what they say? Research shows that only 20% of the funds actually goes into conservation, so what is happening to the rest? Our documentary wants to find the truth!
Help us tell this important story and hopefully make a difference in keeping these majestic beasts alive for many generations to come...
Funds raised for this project will be used to get the team to Uganda, go towards their accommodation, and to get them into the Kibale National Forest.
