I spent another few weeks this past May/June down in Bolivia working on the Feature Doc Charge. Bolivia, what can I say. Its really like nowhere else I have been. It really is the closet thing to a modern day wild west. It was really interesting being back a second time. Despite being bitten by fire ants on my first trip and getting violently ill on BOTH trips, I still think its a pretty amazing place and can't wait to go back (one more trip is in the works).
Once again we took two RED packages and a set of super speeds down (+ 7 other cases of gear). I gotta thank my best bud, adventure buddy and wonderful AC Nick for a killer job (he is the handsome fellow in most of the photos).
Morning cloud coverage over La Paz.
Redeye flight + altitude adjustment from airplane to 14,000 feet = Making it very difficult to count light stands (rental house, La Paz)
Union Hall walk up. Felt like NYC.
This is nearly 14,750 feet above sea level.
We shot a lot of establishing shots on 8 meters of dolly track. Badass.
Mike (director / awesome dolly grip), Me (DP), and Yve (sound women / one of the best all around crew members!)
Nick and Mike.

Yve and our 100mm macro!
We filmed in a coco market. Probably one of the most interesting locations I have ever worked in.
Then we shot in a church. Bolivia gets weird.
