Whilst in South Africa doing a series of workshop, I made 4 mini docs, which you can see here: Ponte Tower, Portrait of a projectionist, the salt water drinkers and the tracker and the banker. These were not commissioned films. There were done for myself and for the pleasure that I take in telling stories. I am a huge advocate of shooting for yourself when you can. It gives you incredible creative freedom which paid work often doesn’t give you, and for me on these workshops gigs I need to make sure I shoot whilst on them, as filming is so important to me. I love to teach. I love shooting more!
I recently did a week-long workshop gig in the Dominican Republic. My first time there. Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to see anything of the Island, but I did have an afternoon off, so I had to shoot a mini doc in that time. [read & watch]
