Afar Region, East Africa

Welcome To Afar:

I just got the word that we will be returning to Ethiopia to start our 3rd film on the Continent of Africa. This project will be shot in Ethiopia & Belize with the Sony EX3 camera package. The project will feature the people of The Afar region in Ethiopia and The Garifuna people of The Stann Creek District in Belize, both groups share a long and interesting history. The script will be completed by mid June so we can start to film in late August. This project will allow us to highlight both Belizean & Ethiopian culture and feature the musical chant of the people of Afar. The project is the brain child of Ethiopian producer, DJ Alemayehu & Belizean producer, Nigel P. Miguel. The Film will also feature Daryl Chill Mitchell in his feature film directorial debut.
