What We're Doing Here
Any thought in the back of my head that this trip was going to be a bit of a vacation has long been banished (well, maybe it is a bit, but a very, very small bit.) We are busy from morning to night and struggling with the task at hand. It's a little like driving down the freeway with your eyes closed -- we know we're moving fast and that there's not very much time and that the simple decisions we make here will make a big difference down the road -- and I think we're both a little daunted by the size of the job.
For anyone who doesn't know, the overview: We are spending these three weeks with two teams of people from the organization we work with (CRM); one in Glasgow and one in Pretoria. I'm functioning as the producer/interviewer/photographer, Andy is the videographer/photographer. We're working to understand what we're seeing, organize it, compile it, and shoot it so that it can be communicated clearly to people who know nothing about it. And do it in a visually interesting way. This, I am discovering, is difficult work.
