This past August a few friends and I set off to Cairo, Egypt and Beirut, Lebanon for 6 weeks to shoot a documentary. This is a montage of some of the footage we shot. Check it out

Footage looks great. Especially that shot early in the morning with the light shining in through some fog or mist or whatever is was at about 2:30. Great looking.

Wonderful imagery. Some of the longer-lensed shots seemed to struggle with focus a little bit, but it didn't stop the overall whole collection from looking fantastic in my opinion.

The wider shots with deeper focus really pop out and it was a pleasure to watch :)

What is the documentary about?

The documentary was about the current political and economical situation in both countries we interviewed Authors and Scholars such as Alaa Al Aswany (Author of Yakobian Building) as well as Lebanese Historian Fawwaz Traboulsi (author of A History of Modern Lebanon)

I knew we had to get great visuals to better contrast the dry subjects.

Beautiful work!! You really made great use of the Pocket Dolly. The shot of the man in the hut at night and the low angle of the cracked earth with the goats are especially great. What is the music?

Let us know when the documentary gets released, I look forward to seeing it.

Thanks for the kind words.

The song is by Nikos and the title is Secret Love.

I will for sure post updates as soon as the doc is cut.
