INDONESIAN JUNGLE BOOGIE
Jakarta at night. If you don’t mind diesel fumes and earthquakes, it’s a richly rewarding photo op.
We are winding up a 2 week project in Asia with a stop in smog and earthquake plagued Jakarta on the island of Java, country of Indonesia. We took our client’s environmental expert out in the jungle – just a few feet from the jobsite – for an appropriate background
Papua New Guinea, home of cannibals and penis guords, was our main shoot location and is by far The Most Remote place on the planet I’ve visited. I stand-in for a worker while Chris fine tunes composition and lighting for one of the construction shots. I actually love industrial settings – yes, they are dirty and dangerous, but they make such majestic and grandiose backgrounds.
More on this fascinating trip when I get back – can’t keep clients waiting!
