So, this week I’m in Ghana. I’m shooting a corporate documentary for a Goldmine.

In the past month, I’ve been a pin cushion… Hep A/B, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Polio & 3 Rabies shots.

Tomorrow is our first shoot day. We are in So far, block 21, 22 & 26 seem free and clear.

I already have had to pull out the solder gun as my return 1/8″ cable got stuck in the door of the pickup truck bed and snapped. Extra glad I brought my solder/repair kit.

More adventures to come!

Shoot Day 1 – Kumasi, Ghana

We had a long day today. We spent most of it in the mud at a mine site in a very remote area.  We got some great footage and interviews. The jib shots look fantastic.  We’re shooting on Sony EX3s.

Somehow my coiled boom cable  AND my internal boompole cable both needed solder repair. EXTRA extra glad I brought the solder kit!

As things come in threes, my SLR lens UV Filter broke.  Well, better it than the lens!

We finished the day at Geodrill HQ.  After that, it was back to the hotel.

Tomorrow, we’re shooting at a second drill site, and then off to the airport to fly back to Accra to shoot there.
