So I get a call in September of last year if I would like to go to Ethiopia for 3 weeks to shoot a doc about seed farmers.
No real budget, very low pay, no crew! Just me and the director. I loved every second of it!

We went through Addis Ababa after a shoot in Liberia. Interesting, but would have loved to get out of the city. Where were you based?

We were based in Addis but went all over the place, the country is huge! The size of France and Spain combined. some of the locations
were very remote, 1 hour flight, 4 hours in a 4x4 and then another hour by foot. Spectacularly beautiful places we went to and the people
are hospitable and genuinely warm. We did have 2 guys with AK47's with us all the time though which does take a bit of adjustment!

You should maybe write a book about your experiences and filming. Would make for an interesting read.
