A week after the devastating earthquake hit Haiti, I was hired to shoot ENG footage for two international networks. This is a montage of personal footage I shot of the aftermath during my spare time, in and around Port au Prince. We were in Haiti for a total of 6 days in which 2 of those days were spent traveling to and from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Due to the situation on the ground, all the footage was shot in 2 days, under direct sunlight and a great deal of pressure. As demanding as it was, it taught me how to pick shots on the fly, and in "not so perfect" lighting or shooting conditions.

In regards to equipment, we traveled very lightly as security and logistics were our main concerns at that time. Once again the Kessler Pocket Dolly proved to be an essential tool in capturing my images.

Lenses used:
Canon 16-35 f2.8 L-series
Canon 70-200 f2.8 L-series
Canon 24-70 f2.8 L-series

Locations: Port au Prince, Leogane, Carrefour

Producer: Susan Modaress

Music: Eric Wollo

Editing/ Color grading: Khalid Mohtaseb

16mm is a much better vibe. Canon 5d is ten a penny.

Devastatingly beautiful - great work.

Just checked out your Egypt / Lebanon Montage also. Some amazing imagery. The pocket dolly ads such a big creative advantage in those types of situations.

Congrats.

Regards, James
