Africa Video Production for EUMETSAT

Filming at EUMETSAT

Design & Data is pleased to be producing a set of five videos for the promotion of EUMETSAT activities in Africa.  Each video will be delivered as standalone videos for distribution on EUMETSAT websites and social media channels.

The series of interviews will cover far-ranging topics of EUMETSAT’s activities in Africa, including data access, food security, weather forecasting and disaster impact, climate monitoring and EUMETSAT’s partnerships with the EU and Africa.

Production will involve filming and editing of a series of interviews (including contextual footage) in HD format in addition to editing of existing interview footage.

A team from Design & Data first headed to EUMETSAT's headquarters in Darmstadt this week during the RAIDEG meeting (RA-I Data Expert Group) – a group established by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in cooperation with EUMETSAT. The team spoke with a number of experts about EUMETSAT's activities in Africa.

The team will then head to Nairobi, Kenya next week to the MESA (Monitoring for Environment and Security) Forum and the Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD). The MESA forum contributes to the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES) and focuses on using Earth Observation (EO) data and information products for environment and sustainable development. The team will interview some of the delegates at this forum and also capture footage in and around the KMD.
