Zambia Shorts

I'll continue to put clips from the Zambia trip up in the coming days. Here are a few of my favorites.

I guess a van full of white people with big cameras is not something the kids in Zambia see everyday. So every time we jumped out of the van, 50 kids would run up to us. This made it very difficult to get isolated shots. During one attempt, MD asked if I could distract the masses. Clapping seemed to be the international language.

This was one of the most difficult shots to manage but ended up being one of my favorites. We asked the teachers if we could listen to the children sing sometime before they ate lunch. The teachers took that to mean "right now!" Before we could finish getting set up, the teachers stopped their lessons and marched 150 kids out to the schoolyard. They lined up and started singing. We scrambled around to get the audio ready. They just continued to sing. This footage is probably 10 minutes into their singing when we finally got things set up.

We spent a lot of time with a young lady named Abigail and her family. They get water out of a well in their front yard. This is a shot of her little brother getting water.

More videos to come!
