This planet is diverse, and the people who live on it are the wealth of it.
From the North to the South, from the high mountains to the vast sea, we are the sublime result of thousands of years of history where human beings were learning, growing and living in harmony with Mother Nature.
We are Nature, and we belong to her.
This is what we as Triple One Productions believe in.
Triple One Productions: Who we are
Our indie collective formed after we realized during our travels that we share the same passion to both fields - research and cinematography - and a mutual goal which is creating a visual medium for indigenous communities and the ones in need of protection to deliver their message through and touch the outside masses.

As Triple One Productions we are seeking new experiences, explorations as well as new topics to cover throughout our travels around the globe, offering a unique standard and a high-quality production. We focus on traditional cultures, indigenous communities, spirituality as well as socio-cultural exchanges and conflicts. We incorporate in our frames, which are a vivid representation of our talents and visions, different types of digital technologies to deliver the most objective yet artistic image. This way we are reaching an audience which is interested in the diversity of existence, ready to broaden its horizon and evolve its consciousness.
With our new project „Kipatsi“ we appeal to the people to raise awareness towards mother nature, reminding that the Amazonia is the world's green lung and holder of invaluable knowledge about natural healing and immense richness of unique flora and fauna. It's due to raising consumerism and alienation that ignorance is growing, resulting in a downward spiral with tremendous impact on the environment, the psyche and the balance between materiality and spirituality. We spare no efforts to find the right middle course between valuable entertainment (through visually beautiful and moving pictures) and education (through objective presentation of our subject and its message) in order to change the status-quo in a sustainable and reasonable way.
The New Project: "Kipatsi"
The ongoing deforestation of the rainforests, the excessive pollution of the rivers, the constant extraction and transportation of natural gas and the brutal invasion of the rich lands by the machineries of big oil companies and other big profit-oriented corporations are being catastrophic on the indigenous communities of Peru, one of the last keepers of the invaluable knowledge about Mother Nature.
Now we feel the urge of calling the world’s attention to this cataclysm more than ever and this is why we decided to visit a Machiguenga community, one of the main indigenous communities of the Peruvian Amazonia, and make a documentary film that highlights the main aspects of their life in a highly aesthetic yet touching way, presenting their culture and traditions, their lifestyle and belief system and calling the viewer´s attention to the major problems they are facing every day.
Who are the Machiguenga?
The Machiguenga is one of the main indigenous communities of Peru; "matsigenka" or "machiguenga" means "The People", and they live in the Amazon rainforest and in some areas of the "sierras" between the Andes and the Amazonia. It is an animistic society that believes in the respect and in connection with Mother Nature. They were used to trade for hundreds of years with the Inca Empire, they were used to be nomadic hunters and their life was, and is still is based on fishing and farming yucca/manioc. The machiguenga people hold an invaluable wisdom and knowledge about the Nature and its balance, and they were living for thousand of years in this land. Today, they are being endangered by the gas pipeline projects that are initiated by big international corporations.
To make this unique documentary film happen we call on you, our fans and backers as well as any person who would like to get involved. This is your opportunity to become a part of a movement that is thought-provoking and follows a free-spirited way.
Today, through your contribution, being small or big, you will be helping us reach our goal, helping these indigenous people spread and deliver their message and helping in the protection of the wisdom and knowledge they hold about Mother Nature or the “Pacha MAMA“.
The Budget: what is needed and why?
In order to follow the Machiguenga community for 3 months in the Peruvian Amazonia Rainforest and be able to create a high-quality film shot in 4K-resolution and of 60-70 minutes duration we need to raise funds of $50.000 in the next 30 days. This way we can recondition parts of our equipment, invest in new gear and get as close as possible to our subject.
Investing in additional cameras and operators as well as in professional post-production enables us to bring you this extraordinary experience and get ready for the big cinema screens and festivals. Furthermore, funding our new documentary „Kipatsi“ through you - the crowd - ensures 100% creativity freedom - from the cradle to the grave. The funds are needed for the following production expenses:
Video & Sound Equipment (cameras, stabilizers, drones, lenses, batteries, tripods, windshields, microphones):
Travel Expenses (flight tickets, accomodation, catering, transport):
Post Production (sound editting & design, color-correction, grading):
Miscelaneous (work station, software, visas, hard-drives, film festival expenses):
Perks (production, purchase, shipping):
Fees (Indiegogo, Paypal, bank transaction fees):
