Tanzania: shooting a film in Tanzania

Six American students are blogging about their experience shooting a feature film in Tanzania: Here are a few memorable moments from being on the set:
* Yelling “action!” right before the fight scene
* Waiting for neighborhood pigs to stop squealing so that we could shoot the scene
* Trying to shoot scenes without any electricity
* Getting carsick while logging shots and riding backwards in a van on a bumpy road
