Despite incredible experiences and encounters while traveling the world, many of our days are spent in our office during post-production. Each of us has our own preferences where we love to spend our time locked behind the computer and we adventure out or in to find the perfect coffee shop or desk.
Social justice documentaries are hard to make. As with traditional docs, almost everything’s out of the filmmaker’s control from the weather to the outcome. Actors are not following a script; real people are living their lives, and those, believe it or not, can be hard to predict.
Part 2 of a behind the scenes look at our time in Cambodia while making Rescue is Not Enough for Transitions Global. Almost every day at around 3 pm the clouds would gather and soon begin to downpour. Luckily, there were a few days we were able to enjoy some beautiful sunsets. Also, we spent a few days with Water of Life in Cambdia and you’ll see some of the children they are impacting in the photos below.
NEW FILM: “Rescue is Not Enough” – Transitions Global, Cambodia
Join the Lights is proud to present our new film from Cambodia: Rescue is Not Enough. When we first met with Transitions Global founders James and Athena Pond, they explained how they lacked a concise video to explain what Transitions does to provide effective, quality aftercare.
It’s been around 6 months since we premiered El Nino Que Llaman Mascota and we wanted to share a little bit of how the film is being used to help support the rescue and care of street children in Caracas, Venezuela.
Towards the end of May, after 6 months of travel and filmmaking, we decided to take a 5 day break in Cambodia. It was good to take a deep breath and not think about film or business every day. After one day in Phnom Penh, we rented some motorcycles and took the risk of driving the 6 hour road to Siem Reap ourselves.
