New Video Reel from Tawi-Tawi

Last month I teamed up with The EXTRA MILE Productions who documented my trip to Tawi-Tawi, the southern most province in the Philippines. This is a place I had always wanted to visit, but because of certain security issues it took some planning to make a trip happen. More than three years on since we started this project on Kickstarter we are still going strong with plans to continue this important work. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and to the amazing team who put this production together. This is just a reel, so stay tuned for the actual episodes to come.

Agta Community Looking at Their Photos

A year after our first visit to this Agta community in a remote part of the Sierra Madres, we returned with photos. The community was so excited to see their photos and it certainly was a highlight of this visit. It’s moments like this that make this project more fulfilling, seeing the different communities react positively to what we are doing. (Video taken with iPod).

A Short Video Message & Our New Facebook Page

Although we are somewhat shy being the ones in front of the camera, we thought we would do a short video update as we enter into the final stretch of our campaign. We also decided to create a Facebook Page for the project to share more spontaneous updates during our journey. We think it will be a great way to send out quick updates once we get in the field.
