In November of 2009 4 people, Bob Davis, Anton Lorimer, Kenny Kim and Jim Davis-Hicks journeyed to the East African country of Tanzania. The goal of the trip was to document and create a compelling film that captured the clean water needs of the region and the efforts of Thirst Relief International. Cinematographers Anton Lorimer and Bob Davis shot the project in a documentary style that attempts to capture the real struggles and efforts of the people in Africa. Kenny Kim was the designated photographer and blogger that relayed the day to day progress to the rest of the world. Jim Davis-Hicks, Founder and President of Thirst Relief International acted as guide and spokesperson of Thirst Relief. Post production/editing was performed by Lorimerworks.

On a personal note, it was a life changing experience that we all hope to share with everyone. Please take 15 minutes of your day to view this video and pass the word out to others. Visit this site to find out more information.

Trailer for Thirst Relief Project in Tanzania

December 14th, 2009

As most of you know from my previous blog entry, I had the privilege of going on a special project for Thirst Relief International last month to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in Africa.

As most of you know from my previous blog entry, I had the privilege of going on a special project for Thirst Relief International last month to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in Africa. Bob Davis (Video Stud 1), Anton Lorimer (Video Stud 2), Jim Davis Hicks (President/Boss Man) & I all agree that we had a trip of a lifetime capturing video & photo footage to use to help promote what Thirst Relief is doing around the world to face the water crisis. I wanted to share (hot off the press) the trailer that Anton has just posted to wet our appetite. The three of us were all armed with our Canon gears (5D & 7D for video & Mark 1D III for photos) and were able to capture some amazing footage of what’s going on in Tanzania.

Perhaps you can consider giving Thirst Relief a donation this holiday season in the midst of all our busy shopping season. It takes $5 dollars to impact a life by giving them access to clean drinking water that we take for granted. Together, we can make a difference in this world.

Leaving for Africa…A Benefit Project for Thirst Relief

November 2nd, 2009

I couldn’t fall asleep last night as I sat in front of my computer pinching myself to see if this is still true. Ever since college, one of my dream/goal was to go to Africa. Many of my friends who have visited there have told me that you owe it to yourself to visit this […]

 

I couldn’t fall asleep last night as I sat in front of my computer pinching myself to see if this is still true. Ever since college, one of my dream/goal was to go to Africa. Many of my friends who have visited there have told me that you owe it to yourself to visit this place. I am going there today and am thrilled and excited like a child going to Disneyland for the first time. I can’t wait to see how God is going to use me on this trip to open my eyes. I’m praying that through this trip my vision will broaden to see the world with clearer eyes and come back a changed man. Here’s a brief description of what I will be doing in Tanzania:

Nov. 2-11, 2009: Four photographers, one purpose . . . to document the work of Thirst Relief International and show how life saving Bio-Sand Water Filters and wells can save lives! Join Bob Davis, Anton Lorimer, Jim Davis-Hicks and me Kenny Kim as we embark on a storytelling journey that will forever impact your life and ours! Follow us online as we tell the story of pastor Mwambungoo who makes a living building and installing thirst relief filters while caring for the needs of his fellow villagers. See how one filter, one well, one person can impact the lives of so many!

Throughout this trip, I will attempt to blog about our experience there as well as some other insights. Follow us on twitter for more quick/brief updates:

I have never been to Tanzania so I do not have any images to share with you. So I visited the blog of previous Thirs Relief team that visited there. I found two of these beautiful images by my friend/super-talented photographer Ben Harrison and I hope he does not mind that I am using them here. 🙂

I am also grateful for my sponsors that have went above and beyond in partnering with me to see this project grow. Thank you.
