Domonic has been involved with Shared Universe since September 2016 when he travelled to South Africa to make a short documentary film about the charity and it’s work - specifically the relocation of a family of 7 elephants onto the Mapesu reserve.
As a film maker and producer, Domonic specialises in 360 filming for Virtual Reality productions. Whilst in South Africa he captured 360 footage which we now use as part of the Shared Universe ‘elephant days’ for primary schools. This experience includes footage showing sleeping elephants being lifted by their feet over the camera as they’re carefully placed into a truck for transportation, plus close-up footage of the elephants then waking up in the back of the truck before they head off to their new home. Both give the children a unique and engaging insight into what it takes to care for, and protect endangered species.
Domonic also contributes to the general running of the charity on a day to day basis, helping with project management, the pastoral care of volunteers, and assisting with other administration activities.
Domonic is currently a trustee of the foundation.
