Surgery Ship

About The TV Series

The Surgery Ship - Series - was shot when Mercy Ships visited Benin, West Africa between 2016-2017. The film crew family grew a lot bigger from the single film! 3 shoot crews followed patients and medics onboard the Africa Mercy over a 16 week shoot period. Back in Australia an equally big post production team comprising of editors, edit assists, story post producers, translators and many other technical people all worked together to create 8 hours of stories for National Geographic People Channel.


Here’s a picture from our first shoot day!

And here is the crew after 3 months of living and working together.
