One day, while filming in Africa, M. Carpenter was severely attacked by an angry warthog family, but survived the incident by defending himself with the tripod of his camera. From that day on, the natives called Carpenter „lembe ingonyama“, meaning „He who fights like a lion“. A lion operating a camera became the logo of the Company and our proud motto has been „We fight like a lion for our films“ ever since.
