We are incredibly proud to have CNN International in Cote d’Ivoire with our team.
C.R.E.E.R’s future Director, Erick with Matt, CNN’s Executive Producer early this morning
It’s been kept a secret for the last two months whilst preparations were underway in London, New York & Cote d’Ivoire to assist their crew of four; Richard Quest, CNN’s Business Presenter is part of the team that is currently filming.
Short roadside break for Richard Quest & Matt to take some photos!
Our Ivorian team have been instrumental in assisting CNN’s passage to Cote d’Ivoire with visas & helping arrange meetings. We’re also indebted to U. Roberto Romano, Cinematographer (Shady Chocolate & Dark Side of Chocolate) who assisted our cause with a dinner meeting in New York.
This morning at 7am, our Secretary, Paul Camille & Director, Erick picked up the CNN team at their hotel.
They have gone up-country & are showing CNN ‘another’ side of Cote d’Ivoire for three days. CNN were initially invited by Nestle’s President to carry out filming on the progress that they’ve made since CNN’s last film about cocoa production & child labour.
Roll, camera, action … in a cocoa plantation!
Currently as this is typed they’re deep into a cocoa plantation & filming as this photo shows; we’ll update you as we hear more from them!
Thanks for your support!
