They Call Me Pest

Update posted by Diane Gueho On Jul 26, 2016

We have already captured some amazing images but not enough for the documentary to be complete. As you could guess, filming interesting images of bats is tricky. They sleep during the day and hang at the top of very tall trees. What we really want to film is when they are active, which is at night. You need top quality equipment to capture images of a subject far away from the camera, and even better equipment when you have little to no light.

-Equipment
We will need to hire cameras and lenses. We also want to get drone images of bats flying and images of the Island’s unique wildlife in general from the air.
-Transport/fuel
For this project we will need to travel all around the island to film the diverse wildlife and interview different people.
-Editor
We need someone to edit the film. If you aren’t familiar with how filmmaking works, especially documentaries, then you wouldn’t know that to make a wildlife documentary you accumulate hours of footage that an editor has to go through, choose and cut.
-Animations
We would like to show the significant pollination contribution that bats have on the island. We think that the best way to explain that would be through an animation.
-Grading
Grading is the process of altering and enhancing the colour of a motion picture. We want to hire a professional so that we can make the documentary’s images as beautiful as real life.
-Music & Sound
Every movie needs music, we are working in collaboration with the famous Mauritian band ‘Grup Latanier’ for a soundtrack and will also need to hire some sound recording equipment for filming on location.

Now you know what the funds are needed for, if you want to see this film come true then share and make a donation ! :)

Je suis mauricienne par adoption, je suis mariée à un mauricien depuis 33 ans, et j'aime l'Ile Maurice. J'ai foulé le sol mauricien pour la 1Úre fois en 1981... J'ai, depuis, suivi son développement, souvent avec beaucoup de tristesse. J'habite Ebene et lorsque l'année derniÚre au mois de novembre, je suivais en direct le massacre des chauve-souris, j'étais horrifiée. Ma colére était indescriptible du fait de mon impuissance à changer le cours des choses, ma tristesse profonde. Je pleurais à chaque coup de feu qui faisait écho et qui tirait de leur sommeil ces pauvres roussettes de leur sommeil en formant un gigantesque nuage noire au-dessus de la montagne. Le spectacle était désolant, macabre... Et je ne pouvais rien faire si ce n'est crier mon désarroi en le dénonçant sur les réseaux sociaux. En voyant votre vidéo ce matin, qu'une amie partageait, j'ai eu un regain d'espoir. Je vous souhaite tout le succÚs que vous méritez pour cette initiative qui j'espÚre portera ses fruits auprÚs des mauriciens mais surtout auprÚs des autorités mauriciennes... Merci.
