We annouce three movie projects and call for funding now. We need sponsors and investors to produce our next movie ideas. We want to produce:
- FILM PROJECT „Rescue Mission Raja Ampat“
After their self-rescue, the film crew becomes aware of how valuable the coral triangle and Raja Ampat are for the earth and makes a detour to the island ‘Bangka’ in the natural paradise of North Sulawesi not far from Raja Ampat. Situated in the middle of the tropical underwater wonder between the Bunaken Marine National Park and the famous ‘Lembeh Strait’ a small island, which was almost tragically destroyed by human hands, and thus one of the most wondrous coral areas in the world.
But the civil disobedience and resistance of the island population by all judicial instances of Indonesia brought the destruction of the island and surrounding nature to a halt. In North Sulawesi we also meet two other German scientists, who tried intensively to resist an iron ore mine on the island of Bangka together with the locals.
Legislative changes in Indonesia allowed the provincial government to grant planning permission for an iron ore mine on the island of Banka. The island’s inhabitants, resort managers, divers and scientists thus saw the near destruction of the island and of the entire underwater region by this environmental sin.
Contrary to the ecolological importance in the region, and unfortunately the island of Bangka lies only just outside the Bunaken Marine National Park and near the island of Lembeh, an evil disaster and crime against nature was organized here by corrupt politicians, because since 2010 a mining company from Hong Kong arranged the establishment of an iron ore mine on the beautiful island of Bangka against the will and resistance of the inhabitants of Bangka. After a long struggle, the inhabitants won against the system of machinations of the environmental destroyers.
The marine area lies in the middle of the Russel Wallace Line and is unique in the underwater world. The 2700 inhabitants of Bangka live from fishing, coconut plantations and above all diving tourism. With the mine the entire region was brought into great danger, because also the nearby Marine National Park and the Strait of Lembeh can be sedimented via ocean currents through the mine, which would have led to the death of the corals and thus all fauna and flora.
We film the background of this environmental scandal and analyse the future consequences for nature through such industrial projects. In our film we show the fantastic underwater wonders in front of Bangka and ‘Lembeh Strait’. A marine region which is famous for its world of small creepy animals under and above water. A lot of species have originated here on the Russel Wallace line, which are endemic only here and therefore worth to be protected.
But the region is not only threatened by mining operations, but also by the immense plastic waste that floats in the sea, because there is no reasonable recycling concept in North Sulawesi, and in addition there is the problem of untreated sewage, as well as the fact that the general rise in water temperatures in the coral triangle causes the corals and thus the reefs to die.
2. FILM PROJECT „White Maasai Warrior II – Move the cows back“
We want to continue our adventures in the heart of Africa and solve a promise Benjo made to the Maasai Morans he joined in our first movie.
Benjo changed back to act as a real Maasai Warrior and steel original swiss cows to bring them back to the Morans in the Maasai Mara Serengeti Ecosystem.
As a thank you the Morans invite and show Benjo very fascinating locations in Tanszania like a hike to the active volcano and ‘Mount of God’ of the Maasai folks onto the Mt. Ol Doinyo Lengai, the Natron lake and explorings into the Ngorongoro crater.
3. FILM PROJECT „Baby Adventures“
We continue our adventures in and around the Med. and Red Sea by yacht sailing and scuba diving with babies on board. Biologist and filmmaker Stephan Stahl and friends become dad and have to learn to grow and guide their children.
We search for answers how a young child could be right developed and educated by doing adventure traveling with a child. Finding some families doing exciting travels together with their children. We research a different life style for children and what is the best for young kids.
We need to fund these three movies with help from the audience.
