Traveling In the Philippines

Posted: March 18, 2012 in Philippines

Keeping a shooting schedule in the Philippines has been brutal due to the craziness of the airports and the madness of delays for hours as well as straight up cancelled flights. Right now, we’re sitting amongst our mountain of bags and camera gear. This is only our second location and the stress of actually trying to shoot this documentary is been doubled, if not tripled by the mishaps of travel.
When producing on a shoestring budget, it doesn’t help that more money needs to be spent to keep schedules, its literally maddening. Our goal at the moment is to get out of Boracay, back to Manila, where I have to rush to a photoshoot and interview with Esquire magazine. Also at the airport we have to unite with our other cousin, Justin, who is another camera man for our crew. He’s never been to the Philippines and has been in transit from the states for over 24 hours. I hope we can find him before he gets lost.
On top of all that, we have to make our connecting flight to Davao, our third location. Traveling with our little renegade crew is little like a traveling circus. The men are watching the bags and the women are yelling at the airline people… More fun in the Philippines.

  1. Awww it’s really like that here, but I’m glad you’re exploring your roots!
