Chasing the Dragon

In 2008 Roger accompanied world renowned cinematographer Didier Noirot on an expedition to dive with nile crocodiles in the papyrus caves of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, an experience which was documented in the award winning film “Into the the Dragon’s Lair”, produced and directed by the Foster Brothers. He subsequently traveled to Costa Rica to make a film about one mans extraordinary relationship with an American crocodile which was broadcast on the National Geographic Channel in 2013, before returning again to the Okavango to further explore the watery cave systems of these ancient apex predators. Drawing on his experiences and learning’s from making these films, Roger presents a 40 minute illustrated talk which explores the themes of risk and fear, first in the context of the film projects themselves and then in the broader contexts of business and one’s own personal life.
