Some are blurry, some are not, who cares, is film, that makes it badass, plus, i wasn’t even trying very hard, i was trying to burn up a roll of 120 quickly, and using an iPhone to meter the light.

His name is unknown at this time, but I’m working on getting it. He told me that he was a school teacher in Binh Duong, things got bad so he left and went down into the Mekong to become a boat operator.

A exported frame from a video we worked on together involving the largest hand painted Coke advertisement ever, in Vietnam. Unfortunately we had to work under a massive green tent which caused everything to have green color cast to it. Color grading the video was a nightmare because we couldn’t get all of the green out, as evident in this photo. I spent an hour on this just trying to get it to look some what normal.
