Wow. It’s been an incredible year so far – just 2 weeks in. I spent New Years with friends in Hong Kong, continuing a tradition with my buddy Scott of going to a different international location every year. Scotland, London, Israel, Nicaragua, and now Hong Kong.
The last 12 days have been spent in Seoul, South Korea filming a documentary for Liberty in North Korea – an incredible organization that I’ve long supported and loved. We’re making a film about Danny, a 25-year-old North Korean who defected in 2005 and recently gained his US citizenship. I’m really excited about this story. Not only is Danny’s story compelling, but we’re trying to step outside of the box of what a non-profit doc can look like and really push ourselves creatively. I think it’s going to be a great little film.
Most of my snaps from the trip are on my iPhone but I grabbed a few stills here and there in-between shooting. Also, check out our little teaser we put together this week. It’s a short preliminary piece – mostly for LiNK to use to book screenings of the film this spring around the country – but it gives you a tiny taste of whats to come.
Lots happening this year. My head is already spinning thinking about all of the ground I have to cover. But I’m really energized and optimistic about all that’s happening in two zero one three.
