Talofa! So far I’ve been in Samoa for five days, recorded 84GB of audio, shot 307 photos, and have a LOT of stories to tell! But some photos will have to suffice for now…
This is why I always sit in the window seat
View of Apia from Daves Eco Lodge
Recording EXT from INT – at night recorded some flying foxes/bats!
Moody beach – first few days were grey & rainy but humid & hot!
Will write more about this photo later – shot some video getting there, it was a 20minute trek through dense bush… Got to this shelter literally a minute before a torrential downpour (which is why we went there – it features in the film) Three minutes later & we would have got drenched!
Recording curfew at Manunu Village – the families singing hymns was so beautiful, especially with mics 20m apart! One of the older chiefs of the village came and sat beside me while we recorded. I’ll never forget the look on his face as he listened…..
Recording coconut splitting & husking
Fish for lunch!
Beautiful sunny Sunday at Saleapaga Beach
Bittersweet – across the road from this beach are the many ruins of houses & lives destroyed by the Tsunami
