For this assignment our crews filmed in Benin, Burkina Faso, Peru, India and Cambodia. With the smallest crew - film director and cameraman - and a limited stay, we not only interviewed all people involved in a wide variety of local projects, we also managed to catch the atmosphere and the beauty at every location.
Some feat considering that we were in-and-out of some countries after a day and a half - including airport administration. Every single shot has later been used in the editing.
With interviews in Khmer and Indic languages, pre-cutting the content was also quite challenging.
The result is 'Switching the Poles', an Award Winning documentary about the unique capacity building program of the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp in developing countries, supported by the Belgian Development Cooperation.
