Ajambule Media

Ajambule Media came about in 2010 as a way to share the photos and videos I was creating while living in Mozambique, Africa. The Facebook page is still available and the Internet Archive Wayback Machine can give you a good idea of what the site used to look like back when it was being updated. Sick in Africa, the documentary series, began filming in April 2015. Ajambule Media served as my launching point for general info and updates but has now been replaced with SickinAfrica.com. Expat Media Pro, another entity of mine with a different media focus, started in 2015. Clients accepted under that identity are not listed below. See ExpatMediaPro.com for more details.

Video

Video production has been a part of my life since 1993 when I worked as an assistant in industrial and wedding videography. I obtained a Bachelors of Arts in 1995 in Audio & Video Production and an Masters of Arts in Digital Storytelling in September 2016. Much of my work in Africa has focused on promotional work for various groups as well as cultural events that I filmed for the Mozambican government and various village elders.

In 2015 I spent 10 months filming Yawo Muslims in my area as they sought help for their illnesses in order to get a better understanding of the unique beliefs and practices at work. This work will become an online series in which each episode will focus on various topics so that those doing health in Africa can better understand how these things work.
