This film for SolarAid was shot on Mafia Island, Tanzania. We began shooting 30 seconds after meeting Athmani. I carried a small camera on a stick, and was accompanied by @Ralph_Greenland from SolarAid UK. Our translator was Irene Chalya from SolarAid Tanzania.

As filmmakers, we have a micro-footprint - in terms of resources, energy, mobility, cost - yet the images are cinematic and the sense of 'being there' is palpable.

This was shot on a Canon 550D with Technicolor CineStyle and Magic Lantern firmware, with a 28mm f2.8 lens.
