After a power outage that pushed the concert back two hours, somehow we still filled the house at Teatro Melia in Havana. My all Cuban crew did an amazing job covering the concert with 12 cameras. All equipment (including A7Rs, dollys, and cranes) was in house in case you were wondering! Planning a shoot ahead of time in Cuba is impossible. I couldn't get my DP on the phone let alone email. The next morning, with minutes to spare for the airport, my producer delivers the drive with all of the media backed up. I checked from the taxi and sure enough it was the wrong drive. Fortunately, our plane was cancelled and we had to spend an extra night so I was able to get most of the footage before i left for the U.S. The missing footage took over a month to get! The biggest challenge was to trust it would all work out. And the footage came out beautiful. "Expectations" may not be in the Cuban vocabulary, but "friendship", "kindness", and "generosity" are.
