Filming is almost second nature to me, I feel my most comfortable and at home with my camera slung over my shoulder, tripod in hand and trusted backpack stuffed full of everything I might need. Using our 24L RIKR backpack in the country where it’s actually made, and where a lot of the plastic comes from, felt really rewarding.
There’s a luxury about traveling to far flung places like here in northern Sumatra, but it’s definitely not glamorous - the trip started from Heathrow flying overnight to Doha, followed buy another 9 hr flight to Jakarta. With all the flying we do at GROUNDTRUTH, we calculate every mile travelled and offset our CO2 footprint with Wildlife Works and their Mai Ndombe REDD+ project based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). This project protects over 740,000 acres of the world’s second-largest intact rainforest.
