Mini Bio (1)
Film-maker and wildlife conservationist, Jimmy Greenwood has directed, filmed and edited all of his own moving picture material as well as writing and narrating over many years. He has his own Film Production company, Feral Film Productions in Nanyuki on the Laikipia plateau below Mount Kenya.
Jimmy is a Videographer and Producer with over 14 years of experience creating and delivering high quality short films for promotion, social media, fund-raising, corporate communication and branding. Through directing his own company, he has also had the opportunity to produce large-scale projects for corporate clients whilst managing and leading his own skilled team of specialists. He is experienced in delivering projects from conception through to the final product and to lead on all aspects of film production from the creative seed and budget to directing, filming, editing and sound. His many years of experience in working across all aspects of film production have also taught him to adapt creatively to suit any budget and to work alongside clients with different backgrounds and expectations to create engaging and ground breaking content. His experience has also given him the skills to work cross-culturally in remote communities and to tell stories which might not otherwise be heard. His passion for story telling, whether human or wildlife and dedication to detail and technical accuracy makes him a valuable member of any team.
Now also operating out of Nairobi, Feral Film is forging partnerships with the most creative film production companies on the African continent and linking these with connections across the planet. Ginger Ink Kenya, Passion Pictures London, Quite Bright Films and Viewfinders Kenya alongside UNICEF, BBC Bristol, BBC Africa, Women One in Toronto, CNN and Sony Germany are all partners with whom Feral has forged blossoming partnerships during 2018.
Having learnt his film making skills the hard way, chasing Chimpanzees around the forested slopes of the Mahale Mountains in Tanzania, Jimmy also makes fund-raising films for wildlife conservation projects, humanitarian charities and promotional films for eco-tourism safaris as part of the Feral Film Foundation - which is subsidised through Feral's commercial work.
FFF is an entity to connect crowd-funding resources to local communities in need of support via film-based social media. The primary focus is in areas of human wildlife conflict, working with existing organisations to identify targets and partners to help build a co-operative solution for all.
FFF identifies creative young individuals within these communities who may not necessarily have academic perseverance and shares necessary basic film-making and web 2.0 engineering skills to enable them to create unique material for upload to keep their project current.
