Wind Dancer in on multinational docu skein

U.K. shingle Off the Fence is collaborating with two U.S. co-producers on docu series, “Wildest Africa,” highlighting the damage being done to the continent’s ecosystems.

The 13-part skein, which Off the Fence is launching at Mip TV, is being made with indies Wind Dancer Films and Africa HD.

The series features such geographical wonders as the wild waters of the Zambezi river, the volcanoes of Virunga National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro’s herds of red elephants.
