Description

Jean Hartley, born in Kenya, is acknowledged as being the first to legitimise �fixing� for wildlife film crews. Over the last 25 years, she has worked on over a thousand films, the vast majority being about wildlife and nature. She features five of the great film makers who all started their careers in Kenya in the1950s, legends whom she is proud to call personal friends. Watching all of their films, and many more, she became fascinated by the history of film making in Kenya and determined to find out when it all started. In this insightful book, she traces the roots of wildlife film back a hundred years, drawing on accounts of the original film makers and the professional hunters who guided those early safaris. She tracks the changes from those grainy, speeded up, silent films through to the technologically perfect High Definition and 3D films that are being made today.

‘But it is certainly a sacrilege to tamper with natural history. I appeal to you, film authors and fellow-producers. Before you produce or write animal films, consult authentic and authoritative books that have been written by men who have spent many years acquiring first hand personal knowledge of the primeval forests, the deserts and the jungle.’
– Joseph Delmont,Wild Animals on the Films(1925).

Acknowledgements
Many people have been very kind in helping me research this book. Some have lent me books or given me links to the internet, most have trawled their memories, and many have dug out bits of their own family history including photographs, press cuttings, books, and even copies of films. Some have even spent time in libraries overseas, coming up with obscure articles and information. I thank them all, and couldn’t have even scratched the surface of the subject without them.
