Warren Freimond, Jessica Immelman and Alex Rodel (with footage by South African filmmaker Ryan Sean Davy) produce “The Rhino’s Song” to be released on World Rhino Day September 22, 2012.
Jess got it all started: “I’m in South Africa for the summer and we want to produce a rhino video for Nikela, is that okay?”
What a question? “Of course it’s okay!” Warren, a friend of Jess’ an aspiring videographer and wildlife lover was ready to go to work. The plan: Have the video ready to celebrate World Rhino Day 2012.
As a volunteer run organization, we here at Nikela, are super grateful to all who offer time and expertise to help protect endangered and threatened wildlife species and educate for the future so others will do the same.
Many thanks go to Warren Freimond…
Wonderful People Wednesday – Warren Freimond
I grew up in Johannesburg and moved down to Durban at the age of 13. I finished matric and went on to study Graphic Design and started getting involved in the video and photography side of things. I have always had a massive passion for wildlife and seize any opportunity to spend time in the bush.
I intend to combine the aspects of Graphics and Design with Wildlife and my passion for Photography and Film in order to promote, protect and conserve this incredible natural element of life.
Two videos I’m most proud of so far are one done on collaring a Male lion in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe as part of a conservation program being run by Oxford university.
And the other, also a Rhino awareness video for my uncles Wildlife Insurance business.
As you can see Warren is a man of few words. Both these videos are well done. You can learn more about Warren’s work by visiting his blog.
We look forward to the release of “The Rhino’s Song” produced by him, Jess and Alex, using their photos and awesome footage provided compliments of South African filmmaker Ryan Sean Davy.
We look forward to working together on future projects Warren and wish you well in your journey as you do what you can to help protect Africa’s endangered and threatened species, like the rhino.
