Securing more funding

We made five short films featuring each of their five partner African universities explaining how developing capacity in African universities stimulates research into new ways to control the disease. The films were shot on location over three weeks in Senegal, Ghana (see right), Uganda, Malawi and Tanzania, and were edited and signed off three weeks after filming finished, and helped secure additional funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust.

The case for capacity development

Following the success of the initial films, the MCDC asked us to create a twenty-minute documentary (see left) presenting the case for capacity development programs. Complementing existing footage with interviews of leading scientific figures, the film was shown to 900 delegates at the MIM 2013 Gala Dinner.
