Well I am here, after months of trying to conceptualise what this journey would feel like I am in it. Africa, Malawi, it is an amazing feeling and I am so excited about getting started and telling some compelling stories.
I was met at the Airport by David Ng’ambi from World Vision Malawi and driven to the hotel where I sit and write this now. I have already learnt some interesting things about Malawi, everyone introduces themselves with their full name and Malawian tea is really good, I look forward to trying the coffee tomorrow which David tells me is some of the best in Africa, big call!
Jon Snyder and Lindsey Talerico-Hedren from World Vision and World Vision New Zealand join me tomorrow and with David we will all sit down and start coming up with a plan of where and with who we will film.
Like Taz we have a shortlist of 3 really amazing clients as possible subjects to work with. All their stories are inspirational and I really hope we can tell their story in a respectful and inspirational way.
We have a good idea of direction but not knowing really who we will be working with we have left much to be decided whilst we are here, which is great for the way I work!
Really looking forward to having the whole crew here and getting stuck in. And can’t wait to see how the other finalist are getting on : )
