World Water Day 2018: A Day at the Dam

Behind the Camera

Dust will never interfere with Wium's camerawork. We know their names, we see their hands, we hear their muffled commentary. safariLIVE wouldn’t be the same (or even possible) without the invisible men on the vehicle, the men behind the camera. Going through the countless comments and questions that viewers have, it’s not [...]

The Calm Before the Storm: An Intern’s Perspective of the Lead Up to TV
