This is a short Documentary/Awareness film looking at the problems with drowning of the coast of Dakar, Senegal West Africa. It looks at the lives that it affects and the way that the local people want to take action and help prevent these tragedies by working with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
It covers how they plan to develop their own lifeguard operations and make their beaches a safer place for everyone.
It is an amazing project that will help to save many lives in the future, it is also only one of the many projects that the RNLI is working on worldwide.
This was a great project to work on and i had lots of control over the film, I directed, shot and edited this film with help from a talented script writer Rory Stamp and also a great voice over artist Ace Bhatti.
Please find some time to watch this film and see what work is being done globally by the RNLI in preventing loss of life at sea.
