A pioneering film crew aims to bring the perils of Darkest Africa to the streets of London via the newfangled silver screen. At the start of the campaign roll 1d6:
1 Wilkinson’s orders require him to take the film crew at start of campaign.
2-3 Wilkinson may choose to take film crew at start of campaign.
4-5 Film crew accompanies gunboat/river launch and then joins expedition.

Whilst accompanied by the film crew, extra Campaign Points can be gained (see card details below). Campaign Points gained in this way are discarded if the film crew are killed (or otherwise lost).
The film crew are represented by a group of four suitable figures and treated as an additional baggage unit. They have enough of their own equipment to manage so can't act as porters to carry other objects. All other baggage rules apply.
