Daniel and I had some fun with a little choreography on his portfolio book that we printed during my first week at his place for the NY Foto Show Portfolio reviews. Biggest challenge was to flip the pages on sound ( which wasn’t really necessary considering the fact that everything could have been chopped up in post production but we liked the challenge ) and to include the lazy chubby housecat in the video. We failed on the cat thing but I think we did a good job with the page-flips.

Last monday I’ve been on my first bigger shoot on set and shot a behind the scenes movie. I have way too much material but looking forward to get into the post work. It was a mixed beauty shoot with crazy metal masks and beside me there were two assistants on set as well as the head props designer, a make up artist and the model who flew in from Portland. 18 goddamn hours day of work starting at 7:30 in the morning. What a crazy day.

Big things happening in the near future. I will have to say goodbye to San Francisco and the United States on monday, flying out to Mexico for a day, transfering to…CUBAAAAAAAAAA!!! As much as I would like to tell you about the job I’ll be doing over there, I can’t really give you details. But I will give you the reasons after completion when I have left Cuba. As some of you know, the US have an embargo against Cuba which prohibits any kind of trading where money is involved.

What I can tell, it’s going to be a photography/videography job and I can’t wait to get that trip started.

I hope to be able to go online in Cuba and show you some pictures of me drinking homemade rum and smoking a handrolled Cohiba while dancing to some smooth Latin bar-beats. Can’t f…… wait!
