Here’s a great second post from my friend Joey Daoud on the progress of our Haitian machete film at the halfway point.
Children climbing the walls of Cap Rouge, Jacmel, Haiti. I love this photo because it reminds me of our small crew’s endeavor to capture an important cultural nuance of the Haitian people, while overcoming many small obstacles one-step at a time. We are a band of storytellers who’ve signed-up to meet a man called “Professor” …
The hardest part of the day was conjuring up the will power not to eat the props. And yes, they tasted as good as they looked. I appreciated William’s approach to creating a mood for his still life photographs and attention to detail.

The work of David Attenborough has been an inspiration of mine since I was a kid. His work as a scientist and film maker is admirable and world renowned. When I considered recutting my time lapse reel I thought why not pair it with something more then just a pretty song.
In my search for audio content, I discovered a recent speech Mr. Attenborough made at the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce that stressed the finite capacity of the earth to support the ever growing population of the world. His tone and focus only complimented the dozen of speeches I had just watched on TED throughout the week.
The message isn’t new, but it’s always worth a reminder.
With this in mind, I selected some of my shots to compliment his edited message.
I hope you enjoy.
