I finished up a documentary for Vice called Elephant Poachers in Kenya a few months ago. This is a section about an elephant orphanage that didn’t make the final cut. Since the trip to the orphanage gave me some pretty adorable footage, I decided to post it here. I hope you enjoy. (you can see the full Vice documentary here: http://youtu.be/ygHH40MAL7w)
I made this video with my buddy Robert Krulwich. It was part of the live show that Radiolab put on a few months ago. Watch the full Radiolab Live show called Apocalyptical here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K52vD…
Also, the silence that you hear at the top of the video happens because the Robert Krulwich character from the stage show is speaking to the Robert Krulwich character in this video. Later on in the video, Robert speaks to his co-host Jad Abumrad.
I just finished up a video for Vice about the upswing in elephant poaching in Kenya. You hear from a couple of poachers, a gun dealer and an ivory dealer. The video also introduces a very special group of rangers who protect elephants, I learned a lot making this one and hope you enjoy it. Take a look here.
Here is the second segment I shot, produced and edited about the technology boom happening in Kenya. Did you know that more people use mobile money in Kenya than anywhere else in the world? Mobile money works similar to a debit card, but purchases are made with a cell phone instead of a plastic card. Watch the video here.
Take a look at the first segment from my latest travels in Kenya. Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, is experiencing a booming technology scene. The developing country has a 40% unemployment rate, so, many young Kenyans are becoming tech entrepreneurs. In addition to being home to multiple startups, Kenya is also building a multi-billion dollar city, just for tech companies. Watch the video here.
