In 2008 a small team of us traveled to Ghana, West Africa. Our Canadian friend Paul was already living in Accra and felt there was real potential for tourism in this part of the world. We thought there might be a chance for us to shoot some footage of West Africa with a positive slant - something missing and seldom seen through most media. We proposed to the Ghanaian tourism board a 22-minute promotional video showcasing travel potential around the country. They loved the idea. They supplied us with a vehicle, a guide, and a signed letter from the minister of tourism - essentially, the keys to the country.
The promotional tourism video was successfully completed shortly after returning to Canada. I wanted to edit a second video that showed more of the personal side of our trip. This video. A small snapshot of our adventure and some great insight into what travel in Ghana really is like. Please enjoy.
