Recent work: Video for the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020

I am very happy to share this brand video I produced for the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020 (World Economic Forum).

We produced multi-camera interviews in Jakarta and shot footage in Kalimantan (Borneo) and Sumatra, Indonesia. It also includes 2-D motion graphics.

It is edited in a narrative style, with soundbites from interviewees introducing the purpose of the organization and featuring two case studies from Brazil and Indonesia.

I really enjoyed working on this project, as I am particularly interested in climate change and environmental issues.

Today’s office: Jakarta, Indonesia

I am shooting photo and video for an international client in a 5-star hotel in Central Jakarta, Indonesia. This assignment involved a lot of planning and pre-production to make sure the setup is right and everything runs smoothly today. The assignment included multi-camera, continuous recording of a live event with 100+ people and several interviews.

All ready for the interviewee!

Recent work: Multimedia piece for Oxfam Australia

Recently I shot a photo story for Oxfam Australia in Lombok, Indonesia. I also edited the images as a multimedia slideshow, including additional video footage and audio recordings.

It is always interesting to work with multimedia and to see how certain photos, that might not be powerful enough to be used individually, take a strong role once they get added to a sequence.

Ramadhan starts in Indonesia

Today marks the beginning of the month of Ramadhan, holy to Muslims around the world, including about 200 million Indonesians. For a month, followers of Islam fast from dawn until sunset.

As the bright lights of this Jakarta mall reminded, if you’re feeling hungry (and/or cranky, they usually go together), just keep calm and carry on.

Keep calm -- it's Ramadhan

Back in Indonesia

I’m back to Jakarta. Back to Indonesia!

And just three days later, I’m getting ready to go on an assignment in Lombok (next to Bali). I barely had time to recover from my jet lag (12-hour time difference from Haiti) and here we are, on the run again! Continue reading
