A few wandering shots from a short weekend visit to Curitiba, Brazil. It’s a long winding climb up from the coast. The altitude gives the place more of a Pacific Northwest vibe than the rest of Brazil, which is now sweltering through mid-summer.
Producing a daily vlog is a revealing, invigorating creative experience. The format flexes artistic muscles and forces fast decisions. It pushes boundaries of participation and relationship. Failure and success are immediate, all with the chance to try again the next day. In the space of a month, I produced 90+ minutes of something worth watching.

Alone in Rome for a few days and thinking of y’all. I miss you. Grateful for so many good people in my life.
I’m in Brazil to screen the film with some participants. It’s an opportunity to reconnect without the camera and get their feedback to ensure they feel well represented by what I’ve put together. It’s been an amazing time.
