  • Permission to use Drone Footage of Mt Kilimanjaro

    Hi Espen!

    This is Omkar Potdar and Sehran Mohsin – independent film makers from Mumbai, India.

    Last week, we successfully reached the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa with three blind men and some sighted persons. This was the first ever inclusive expedition of its kind in the world.

    We have extensively filmed the entire journey and are looking to make a short film on the climb and what went through.

    The main purpose of the film is to promote the fact we need to include and look at persons with disability as ordinary people.

    We came across your excellent drone footage in this video and were looking if we could use some of it in our documentary.

    We can share details of shots and their duration once we have an approval from you.

    Since the expedition was organized by a not for profit organization (ABBF – Adventure beyond barriers foundation), we are not going to be using the film for commercial purpose but solely to create more awareness.

    Since we won't be able to provide a monetary return on it, we will definitely add your/ company's name in the end credits of the film and also give a link to your youtube channel in the description. We are planning to send the film across to various adventure film festivals in Asia and abroad.

    Please let me know if you would be willing to share your footage with us. Also do let us know if you have something else in mind.

    This is the start towards a great cause and we are hoping for a positive response from you.

    Best Regards,
