Shooting Abroad / by Alex Simpson

For the last 7 weeks I've been making my way around Colombia, Costa Rica and Nicaragua shooting a selection of short form projects on topics ranging from speciality coffee in the mountains of Armenia to the environmental efforts of those based on the tiny island of Ometepe.

This adventure has been just that; a real adventure, and for me the joy of travel filmmaking is in the unknown, the unexpected and the unforeseen situations in which we find ourselves purely by opening up to those around us. It does make me question just how much more we could experience in our day to day lives if we were to apply these principles of living to our everyday routine.

In the coming weeks I will be editing these projects together and collaborating with some online publications to showcase the work.
