Tunisia // SPANA shoot
Recently Global Fire flew over to Tunisia to do some filming for SPANA (Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad). Mark was out there for 5 days getting footage for various UK news stations, which will broadcast later this month. Our brief was to capture the work of SPANA in Tunisia, following a vet from the UK as she inspects camels and carriage horses.
We spent the first 2 days in the tourist resorts in the north. The weather was surprisingly really bad – cold and windy – which proved a challenge as this was the time to get the tourist shots. We got what we needed though, along with some great footage of carriage horses in various conditions being inspected.
We then travelled south into the Sahara desert to the town of Tozeur. Here we spent 2 days capturing the launch of SPANA’s horse carriage licensing scheme and their mobile camel clinics in the heart of the desert. The weather picked up so we got some great sunny shots here.
It was great to spend 5 days with the SPANA team, getting a real insight into their work in Tunisia. Our footage will be broadcast on local news stations later this month.
