Filmmaking is a collaborative process from start to finish. As we move forward with film production, we welcome any help we can get along the way. Experts and enthusiasts are encouraged to read about the following ways you can contribute:

Do you have any film or video footage from Cameroon? We are looking for images of mvet players, or ceremonies which include the mvet or balafon, particularly from the Center or South Province circa 1950 – 1970. We are also interested in a range of archival images of Cameroon.

Do you have audio cassettes or CDs of radio programs, musical performances, or albums that include mvet-playing or early Bikutsi music from the 1950's and 60's?

Please contact us if you do.

In all instances, we will make a dub of the source and return the original promptly to your attention. You will be credited in the final film.
