Bad Rabbit Studio is an independent, award-winning team of two filmmakers based in Harare, Zimbabwe. With a deep commitment to storytelling and a love for the people and landscapes of Southern Africa, Bad Rabbit Studio strives to create impactful and meaningful work, approaching every project with care, integrity, and a desire to shed light on the stories that matter.

We specialise in conservation and social impact storytelling through film, photography, and writing. Our mission is to use these mediums to raise awareness, inspire action, and foster a deeper understanding of the issues that affect our environment and society. By shining a spotlight on the often-overlooked stories of the resilience of rural communities and the complex issues that shape environmental decision making, we aim to inspire conversation, provoke thought and contribute towards a deeper understanding of the continent’s complexities and rich heritage.
