This film played at an event inside the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History before an audience of 500 global leaders. The centerpiece of the museum is a 50 ton elephant on display, which we cleverly brought to life by have the “elephant in the room” share a story with the audience that expresses his opinion on their efforts to address the planet’s serious environmental problems.
Documentary for Discovery’s Inside Out series
More than 4.5 million tons of tuna are caught each year as part of a $5 billion industry that is an economic lifeline for Pacific island countries. But for how much longer?
Saving our Tuna, a new half-hour documentary to be broadcast across Asia in June for World Oceans Day, takes you to the richest fishing grounds on the planet, where fleets of fishing vessels equipped with sonar, and sophisticated satellite tracking devices are catching millions of tons of tuna, making it the third most harvested fish in the ocean.
The race is on to see if technology can also help save a commodity that is a way of life for so many. Harvest rates have been increasing dramatically over the last decade, placing pressure on a resource that is vital as a food source and an important means of livelihood.
GEF: Planet at the Limit
Climate change is a reality affecting all of us. Time is no longer on our side and we need to act now. This is the main message of the new GEF documentary, a film that presents the reality of climate change but also highlights the work the GEF supports to mitigate or reverse global warming and help people adapt to the impacts of a changed climate. The film illustrates the linkages to climate change in the work GEF supports in other environmental focal areas, demonstrating synergies across the various fields of GEF investments.
Documentary for the Global Environment Facility about ridding the planet of toxic chemicals
In May, 2013 Arrowhead produced Planet Detox, a half-hour film that highlighted the GEF’s efforts to support local communities as they work to reduce the harmful effects of chemicals in our environment. Filmed on location in the Phillipines, China, Mexico, Tanzania and Kenya in just 21 days, the film is a testament to Arrowhead’s ability to deliver amazing content under a tight deadline and budget. The film debuted at the COP6 conference in May of 2013.
Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are a group of chemicals that cause cancers, birth defects, learning disabilities and other health problems in humans and wildlife.
The GEF funds projects in developing countries to assist them in phasing out and eliminating these hazardous chemicals.
The story of POPs is the story of human health, and behind every GEF project there are dedicated men and women working every day to protect us all from these chemicals.
This film tells some of their amazing stories.
Documentary for Discovery Networks and UNDP about access to energy
Flip a switch, plug in a cord, push a button…the power of electricity is a given in the modern world, but for 1.3 billion of the Earth’s people, energy production infrastructure is not available for heating, cooking or even lighting one’s way. Yet, in some of the most remote and impoverished areas of Asia, innovative solutions are powering local communities and changing people’s lives. “Inside Out: One Simple Solution” travels to Nepal, India, and the Philippines to uncover the amazing and simple solutions that are being found to solve one of the world’s toughest problems, energy poverty.
Discovery Asia’s “Inside Out” is an episodic series that dives into complex and thought-provoking topics. For “One Simple Solution,” Arrowhead Films trudges through the mountains, the slums and the mud to capture the human effects of energy poverty and the inspiring stories of innovation that are solving it. Director Patrick Fries, cinematographer Daniel DeLoach, editor Paul Dumas and producer Richard Gaylord are proud to deliver another stunning HD production for Discovery Asia.
