It's Been A While....

As we were getting ready for our research trip to China, our friends at The Silkroad Project called us and asked if we'd be interested in making a short documentary about their concert tour. (The Silkroad Project is an amazing ensemble of world class musicians led by Mr. Yo-yo Ma.)

I thought about it for a short moment and decided to go for it!!! With our research trip just weeks away, there was a small window of time to fit the "China Tour" into our schedule. I figured it would be a great chance to gain some valuable experience in China, as well as a way to get rid of any anxieties and fears we may have had about making a documentary film about controversial topics inside modern-day China. Well, we're back safe with a renewed sense of purpose... China is a wonderful place with its own way of doing things. Having finished a film shot in Japan, I was well aware of the cultural differences and the approach I should have when interacting with the locals.

Shooting B-roll from Hong Kong Island...We're looking at all sorts of ways to fund our film!

People just look way cooler standing next to HD cameras!!!

Hong Kong at night was pretty much a meat market!

Pretty Colors!!!

Soooo romantic!!!!
