I am Rosie Thomas. I spent over 300 days filming 32 Chimps in South East Senegal as the Producer of BBC America's Dynasties. AMA
Hello Reddit, I am Rosie Thomas, a producer/director at BBC Studios Natural History Unit and I spent the past four years producing the Chimpanzee episode of the Dynasties series.
I have worked on award-winning productions including Africa and Monkey Planet. I have traveled all over the world filming a wide range of different animals, from elephants in Central Africa to lizards in Tasmania, but have spent a large part of my career filming primates, all across the globe.
I spent the last two years filming a single group of chimpanzees in a remote part of Senegal for the Dynasties series, now premiering Saturdays at 9pm ET on BBC America.
