New Series of Naked & Afraid on Location in Koh Kong in Cambodia

The latest series of Naked & Afraid premiered on the Discovery Channel last night and the much anticipated Cambodia episode will be coming soon.


A popular show on the Discovery Channel, the Naked & Afraid team travelled to Cambodia to shoot an episode in the first part of 2014.  Working with Renegade 83 Productions, Hanuman Films months coordinated all the scouting for this shoot and selected the final remote location for the contestants to survive. After initial consideration of jungle areas as varied as Mondulkiri, Bokor and Chi Phat, we eventually settled on a remote location in Koh Kong Province about 45 minutes upriver from Koh Kong town. This ensured the crew had a convenient logistical base while the talent could still be dropped in a very remote jungle area with no human contact. The three-week shoot started in the middle of January with the two contestants being dropped in the jungle. Hanuman Films provided a large support team for this shoot, including our Fixer Vutha Soth and a local crew that included two medics, two runners and several boat drivers to get the crew in and out of the remote location. While some of the crew had to get naked for this shoot, it was clear they didn’t need to be afraid with Hanuman Films running the shoot.

Indus Films of the UK was commissioned by the BBC to produce a landmark series on the Mekong River and Hanuman Films was contacted as the line production company to assist with the four-part series featuring Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and China. Hanuman Films line produced the first two episodes in the series covering Vietnam and Laos and provided advice and recommendations for the third episode in Laos. Popular television presenter Sue Perkins fronted the show and for episode 1 she journeyed from Ho Chi Minh City through the Mekong Delta and into Cambodia. She visited the incredible floating market of Cai Rang and met a survivor of Tuol Sleng Prison before travelling northeast to the majestic temples of Angkor and the Tonle Sap Lake. Sue and the Indus crew spent several days living in the village of Kompong Pluk, learning about fishing techniques and local lifestyles. The great lake is the heartbeat of Cambodia and the incredible rise and fall in its water levels are intimately connected to the rise and fall of the Mekong River. The lake is known to expand to five times its normal area during the wet season, making it a vital source of fish and protein for the Cambodian population.

For episode 2, the focus moved to the wildlife in Cambodia and Sue joined a Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) organised by leading wildlife NGO Wildlife Alliance and the Cambodian government, on a wildlife bust in Koh Kong. She then travelled deep into Mondulkiri Province in the northeast of Cambodia where she visited the Elephant Valley Project (EVP) and learnt about their ecotourism initiatives to protect retired working elephants. In Kratie Province, she encountered rare freshwater dolphins in the Mekong River, as well as the rare Cantor’s Turtle. Finally the team travelled up to Ratanakiri to meet the minority people of this remote province and learn how dams and deforestation might affect their lives as the region develops.

Filming has now wrapped on this new mini-series and it will be screened on the BBC later in 2014.

Hanuman Films Hotel Video of La Residence d’Angkor in Siem Reap

Hanuman Films was recently on location at La Residence d’Angkor in Siem Reap to shoot this promotional hotel video. Hanuman Films has a series of hotel video packages available for properties seeking to promote themselves.

Before you read on, did you know that video now ranks higher than images and text in Google searches? This means if you don’t have a promotional video on your website, then you will be losing out on business to your competitors that do use video. Google owns Youtube, so Youtube-hosted videos outstrip all others when working on search engine optimization (SEO).

Hanuman Films is the most experienced production servicing company in the Mekong region. We have worked on more than 100 international productions in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia during more than a decade of film-making. Hanuman Films has been operating since 2000 and has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry including Paramount, Angelina Jolie, BBC, Jeremy Clarkson, Discovery, Gordon Ramsay, Nat Geo, Charlie Boorman, Radical Media, Pepsi and Daniel Craig. Hanuman Films brought Tomb Raider to the temples of Angkor and brought the Top Gear team to Vietnam.

Hanuman Films also offers bespoke hotel video production, drawing on our unique perspective on the travel industry thanks to our respected sister company Hanuman Travel (www.hanuman.travel). When it comes to marketing your hotel in the internet age, most potential customers would rather watch a 2-minute video then read several pages of a website or brochure. If a picture tells a thousand words, just imagine what video can do for your property? The key to marketing in this attention-deficit age is to attract their interest from the outset and clean, crisp HD video makes this possible.

Unlike many hotel video production companies promoting their services, Hanuman Films does not attempt to hold on to the copyright of the hotel video. Once we have finished our shoot and edited the agreed videos for your property, you will own full rights to these videos. Hanuman Films and sister company Hanuman Travel reserve the right to use the videos for their own promotional purposes online, but the rights to the video are then handed over to you and the video can be used on a DVD or online in any way that you choose.

In association with this Hanuman Films proposal for a hotel video, sister company Hanuman Travel will actively promote your video in a number of important ways. Hanuman Travel plans to feature a video of your property on our Hanuman Travel TV Youtube Channel and our very own www.hanuman.travel website.
