We returned from our expedition after traversing many beautiful landscapes, scouring two ancient temples, night swimming in plenty bodies of water, and shooting enough footage to make a commercial, but what I really took away from Belize was the warmth of its people. They were unconditionally helpful, enthusiastic, and giving, even when (especially when) they seemed to have very little to give.
Though I’ve yet to see it, friends are alerting me that my ad for the New York Lottery is up on phone booths, at bus stops, and in subways around the city. I’m not sure I had even had my coffee before I was standing in the middle of a crowded MTA bus having a complete stranger lather me with sunblock. But hey, that’s… show business?
Capturing each of the light sources in my bedroom on a late spring afternoon. A pink lamp. A loose bulb. An overhead orb. A reading light. Two big blue windows. Shot through a small sheet of frosted glass.
I was producer and 2nd director of photography for this piece showcasing the Hunts Point Alliance for Children.
It was such a privilege to meet the children and administration of this incredible institution. Shooting this has inspired me to seek more work that is committed to sharing the experiences of those who want to make this world a more hospitable place for others to grow and thrive.
