A month gone already? Seems like we just got here – and our blog is woefully behind. But we have SOOO much awesome 4K footage for our upcoming: Piles of Bricks (Revisited) our look at Nepal’s 2015 earthquake recovery efforts five years later.
What’d we do?
Of course, it is next to impossible to avoid mishaps on extended trips to remote places like this and this visit was no exception with the passing of our cat Oreo while we were gone. Bobbie was also pickpocketed of her phone, but she got it back after racing down the street urchin that messed with the wrong girl.
Thanks to all that are making this possible, especially Amit Nepali and his awesome family in Lalitpur and brother Kishan for the use of his motorbike that make our remote shoots possible. Also, thanks to Revs Shyam Nepali, Rinzi Lama, and the Anglican church office in Kathmandu for all their support. Special kudos to Hindu priest and brother Susan Kapali who arranged and accompanied us on awesome shoots and interviews. As always, none of this is possible without co-producer/cinematographer Bobbie Richards - and my mom Boots Richards who keeps it all moving along from home.
We’ll be putting out more as we get closer to the release of Piles of Bricks (Revisited) in April as we try to shed light on what happened to
the $4 billion the world promised to the people of Nepal. And with it our ongoing research, assistance and documentation of the people and issues entangled in the economic and environmental issues upon which we focus.
As always, thanks for reading and your continued support.
