This January, we collaborated with Lulu Sanders from LA, USA for filming her reality TV show called ‘Celebrity Charity Exposed’, which was majorly focused on showing what celebrities are doing for charities. The Nepal edition showcased one such celebrity, Petra Nemcova, who lost her fiancé in a tsunami and founded ‘Happy Hearts Fund’, with the aim to help natural calamity-inflicted people all around the world. Happy Hearts Fund, in collaboration with All Hands Volunteers, has been building schools all around Nepal, after the country was shaken and devastated by the major earthquake of April 2015.
We traveled to Sindhupalchowk and Nuwakot, the most affected districts, where the schools are still being constructed, some being on the verge of completion. The shoot was a total of 3 days, with constant travel to different schools filming the progress and interviewing the students and the teachers. Every school greeted the gang of foreigners with garlands and flowers, but so were all the filming crew respected and greeted, showing the hospitality that Nepal is so eminent about. Various musical programs and games entertained the guests who came all the way and have been constantly helping to build Nepal and make it better.
Something that really fascinated all of us was what we saw at Shree Bachchhala Devi School in Nuwakot, where volunteers from over 28 countries have been volunteering to build the school for around 3 months and were wearing traditional Dhaka Topi, during the School Handover Program. Overall, it was a great experience for the filming team as well as everyone who were part of the short but fruitful trip. Kathmandu Films prides itself to be a part of such a wonderful filming experience and take Nepalese cinematics around the world, spreading a positive message. Kathmandu Films welcomes you all to come to Nepal and work with us. Let us fix and film together because your satisfaction is our honor.
