The documentary team has been moving fast and furious. Over the past 6 days we've filmed interviews, b-roll footage, and human interest shots in locations all over the city of Lima. After multiple 14-hour days of production and filming, we arrived in the beautiful city of Arequipa last night for the next phase of the documentary.
We'll be in Arequipa for 4 days filming interviews with key stakeholders (Father Alex) and visiting with collaborative partners to truly capture the message of building bridges that is so central to the work of HBI.
One thing that continues to surprise me - the lessons I receive from projects like this. The documentarians - two amazing young men by the name of Will Cuddy and Zachary Feiner - are teaching me so much. They are consummate professionals and have such easy going and gentle personalities. I am learning so much from these young men about the work and story of HBI. The more I talk about our programs, projects and model - the more I learn about our organization.
I feel so privileged to be surrounded by such an amazing team of individuals. Stay tuned for more updates and photos from this amazing adventure that is the making of the HBI documentary.
