Project No Rest


Project No Rest

Last year I had an incredible opportunity to shoot with my good friend and Director/writer, Cliff Bumgardner in Raleigh, NC. We crunched a 5 day shoot into 3 days because of a small hurricane named Florence.

The films we created are being used to educate and rehabilitate victims of human trafficking, including labor, illicit massage industry, and child sex trafficking.

I read it on the flight back to GSP and couldn't get over how engaging and visual this commercial was. I could see it immediately. A few days later I found myself, Mason, and Shama in a meeting, talking about how we could get this thing shot.
