Photos from a breast cancer awareness video shoot

I was in Bangkok doing the post-production for RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS when I saw an old acquaintance of mine, Claire Khoo, asking on Facebook whether anyone would be able to help her do a video about breast cancer awareness.

Claire, of course, was known as Minishorts back in the day and had a very popular blog. I've even done some guest posts for her. Those were almost 9 years ago. An eternity.

She is a breast cancer survivor too.

I decided to join the cause. Assembled a team to do a video where breast cancer survivors like Claire and many others, along with their friends and family, could share their stories. There are those who didn't survive, so their family members could tell their stories too.

Yesterday morning, I triumphantly declared the beginning of the shoot... but accidentally leaving out the "CANCER" in the "BREAST CANCER AWARENESS". As you can see from the comments, Comedy ensued.

TK, of course, posted way more good photos of the shoot.

And this was me, doing some directing stuff. (No, I really was just adjusting my hoodie)

I got Steve Long, a long-time friend and very experienced DoP (also a director) to shoot for me. It was our very first collaboration!

Gonna start syncing the audio and do my editing.
