What an incredible month it has been in Thessaloniki, Greece.  Although some of the work we do is rather un-cinematic  (from preproduction meetings to all-day editing), this video shows some of the best times here in Greece.  Enjoy!

Today we were blessed with the best weather we could have had in Thessaloniki, Greece.  It was absolutely incredible.  Not a cloud in the sky.  Today was our main day of shooting and it needed to be great.  Amazingly, all the pieces came together and we were able to have a pretty flawless day.  A big thanks to everyone here in Greece who helped make the day so fun and exciting.  We love this A21 group and the community that they have here in Greece.  So blessed to be supporting their campaign to end slavery!

I heard it said once that time is slowed down when we experience new things. Our brain takes in information and expands the memories so a day starts to feel like a week, a week like a month, and a year like 5. If it is true that new experiences make time seem longer, then I guess we’re in for a long 2013. But something tells me that at the end of it all, it will seem like just a dream that has flown by.

Venezuela in Retrospect

Caracas Venezuela

With reckless abandon we left our comfortable home destined for Caracas, Venezuela to share the powerful stories of street children being rescued and hope being restored. We had no idea what to expect but we now understand it could not have been a better fit for our first month on tour.
