Two filmmakers find themselves in Port-au-Prince during the earthquake and create a short, cinematic portrait of Haitian life.
Continuing with this series on Haiti, the Le Clerc brothers found themselves in the country when the earthquake occurred. Primarily there to document a non-profit’s work, they spent time on top of their assignment to showcase ordinary moments with incredible, cinematic quality. Using the glidetrack allowed for the visuals to be dynamic but remain intimate.
As I (intern Lindsay) prepare for my opportunity to document the situation in Haiti, I’m keeping in mind what accessible filming equipment can produce such professional-looking visuals, like a skateboard-turned-dolly. That and these other Haiti in View series videos will help me develop my arsenal of video ninja skills. What do you think is lacking in today’s coverage of Haiti?
