Principal photography has begun on Colombia: Wild Magic.
Off The Fence, Colombian retail company Grupo Éxito and Ecoplanet Foundation are producing.
Mike See directs the Colombian biodiversity documentary that aims to raise awareness of the country’s fragile ecosystem.
The production itinerary includes the grasslands of the Orinoco region, the Andes, the Caribbean. Filming began nearly a year ago on the island of Malpelo and moved to the Amazon.
The crew is using a High Definition 6K Cineflex Ultra technology and the producers have targeted a Colombian release in the first quarter of 2015.
“Colombia: Wild Magic will not only show Colombians and audiences around the world how unique and fragile our country’s ecosystems are, but will generate a debate and raise awareness to make environmental conservation and sustainability a priority for the private and public sectors, ensuring we all take responsibility for its future,” said Grupo Éxito CEO Carlos Mario Giraldo.
“We understand that this perspective of our own country is mostly unknown by the vast majority of our population, so we decided to show it and do it the best way we could, because we believe we all need to know our country better in order to preserve our delicate ecosystem for future generations”, he stated.
“Throughout this 90-minute documentary, the viewer will become mesmerized by beautiful and inspiring footage,” said Ecoplanet director Francisco Forero.
“Passing from the frozen summits of the Andes, the richness of the Caribbean, the vast savannahs of eastern Colombia and the western jungle of the Pacific and the Amazon rainforest, it will undoubtedly become obvious how important our role is in its conservation.”
