Roll call for Guyanese talent!

A Brooklyn filmmaker is on the hunt for two Guyanese actors for his new film coming out next year. Guyanese-American movie maker Stefon Bristol is creating a full length version of his award-winning short film, “See You Yesterday.” His Spike Lee produced project, follows two black teen prodigies who create a time machine to prevent one of their brothers from becoming the victim of police brutality.

The roles call for two Afro-Guyanese actors between the ages of 50 and 70 years old. They play the grandparents of lead character Sebastian Thomas, who is of Guyanese descent in the film. Bristol says the roles are minor, but central to Sebastian’s character and upbringing.

Red Deer filmmaker goes on African safari with Wild TV


Flying in a wind-rocked helicopter above the South African savanna, Red Deer filmmaker Rueben Tschetter strained to capture a white rhino on video — without falling out of the chopper.

When he was hired as a camera operator for two safari episodes for the Wild TV show The Edge, Tschetter knew he would be in for an adventure.

Much of what Tschetter experienced in Africa from May 9-20 fell outside his comfort zone — from flying in a door-less helicopter that took-off before his seat belt was buckled — to walking 25 km in a day with hunters tracking wildebeests in a game farm near the Botswana border.

“It was crazy… it was my first time in South Africa, my first time in a helicopter, my first time shooting a…

Monday, May 7, 2018, 6:27 PM – A South African filmmaker is dead after suffering a “fatal run-in with a giraffe on set,” northwest of Johannesburg according to filming agency CallaCrew.

Carlos Carvalho, 47, had been working on a shoot at the Glen Afric safari lodge last week when the giraffe swung its neck and knocked him over.

He was flown to a Johannesburg hospital but died of his injuries that night.

The owner of the lodge says the giraffe did nothing wrong and will not be put down, according to the CBC.
