I received a call a few weeks ago to go to Rwanda and be a part of a video crew doing documentary work for a non-profit that's doing great things there. Recording albums and doing 'audio for video' are not very similar, but I enjoyed it so much. The people of Rwanda have faced unimaginable pain because of the genocide that happened in 1994. 1 million people killed in 100 days. I still can't process that.
My work there was very heavy, but the stories of reconciliation were beautiful. I ran around with a sweet Sound Devices audio rig and did my best to capture everything. Thanks to Contrast Films for hiring me.
