Andrew Malcolm Films

Andrew Malcolm Films is a travel and wildlife documentary production house based in California. We are currently working with the Wildlife Emergency Fund, and other South African Conservation groups, in the development of the wildlife series Saving Giants. Saving Giants follows conservation icons as they embark on daring initiatives designed to save Africa's remaining iconic species. 


Their two most recent projects are "Malelane", the story of the attempt to rescue five African elephants before they are shot. And "Coming Home: The Mpilo and Makhosi Story" about the translocation of two juvenile Southern White Rhinos, one of whom was orphaned through poaching. 

Andrew Malcolm Films has previously produced the award winning feature documentary titled "Discovery Mode", filmed over a period of five months in South East Asia, profiling the phenomenon of Millennial travel.

Two more films are currently in post-production for the Saving Giants series, with a further two to be filmed in the coming year.

SAVING GIANTS PRESENTS:

COMING HOME: THE MPILO AND MAKHOSI STORY

Winner of the 2021 International Wildlife Film Festival AUDIENCE AWARD, COMING HOME is a documentary feature about the translocation of two orphaned rhino calves in Zululand, South Africa to the Somkhanda Community Game Reserve. A dedicated team of conservationists from multiple organizations spent four years hand rearing, and protecting Mpilo and Makhosi for their eventual re-wilding in the African bush.


For Makhosi, Somkhanda would be a new home. For Mpilo, it was a return to the place of his birth. In 2017, Mpilo's mother was a victim of the rhino poaching crisis. Mpilo was left next to the body of his dead mother for days before being found and rescued. Coming Home is a film which attempts to show the realities of what tragedies have befallen Africa's natural heritage, and those passionate people who have dedicated their lives to its restoration and protection.

SAVING GIANTS PRESENTS:

MALELANE

Saving Giants presents "Malelane", the story of a historic rescue effort to translocate five African elephants from inevitable death.


In June of 2020 five elephants broke out of their reserve in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa and began crossing a national highway. This posed an outstanding problem for South African authorities. Do nothing, and it was only a matter of time before a road accident occurred, which may come at the cost of a human life.


For the government, two options remained. The first, to shoot the animals. The second, to attempt a lighting fast emergency rescue effort to move the animals to safety.

In an attempt to save the animals' lives, a team of legendary conservationists, including Kester Vickery (Conservation Solutions), Dr. Dave Cooper (KZN Wildlife), Dr. Peter Rodgers, Dereck Milburn (Aspinall Foundation), and bush helicopter pilot Jana Meyer, mobilized a rescue party, with record setting speed. A project which would normally take months to plan, was mobilized in three days. The objective, to solve the problem by translocating the animals to safety before an accident or a rifle did.


"Malelane" follows their story of ingenuity and perseverance over those three days.
