December 2018 – we can celebrate a little anniversary
10 years since the foundation of the Escape to Nature production, 10 documentaries, more than 80 awards at international film festivals around the world …
Christmas – a time of fulfilled wishes. In the beginning, we had a wish. To capture the beauty that compels us to delve deeper, to voluntarily be stung by aggressive mosquitoes, to experience literally by touch sharks and the descendants of cannibals. The desire to transform the exuberant yet disappearing world into a series of moving images. We learned on the fly; we refused to be deterred by Libor’s loss of a finger or my consciousness a couple dozen meters under the sea, confiscation of our equipment, or especially the constant carousel ride of securing additional funding. Ten years of Escapes, ten years of beautiful, crazy experiences and self-denial, with utmost gratitude for everything we’ve had the chance to experience. We started by putting our hearts and enthusiasm into the project; with time, we’ve added experience, partners, trophies from film festivals … and plenty of wrinkles. Fewer corals and sharks; more tourist attractions, resorts, and roads along which civilization bulldozers through untouched nature. This year Christmas brings a look back at our early days with the broadcast of our first episodes during the traditional holiday television schedule. So if you’d like to watch a fairytale that you can experience for real, tune in to “ČT2” (a channel of the Czech National Television – Ceska televize) at Christmas time in Czech language.
