After The Fire
A documentary telling the story of the 2018 Malibu fires and how the residents of this coastal paradise dealt with this epic natural disaster. A story about the spirit and soul of a community which is home to some of the most creative people on the planet.
I've been fortunate to call Malibu home for many years. This is a one minute clip taken from a longer version that's in the works which features the beauty of this 21 mile stretch of coastline in Southern California. Malibu also happens to be home to some of the most creative, artistic people on the planet.

Cockfighting is an ancient Balinese tradition and although the government officially frowns upon it, for the male inhabitants of Bali it is an integral part of their daily lives. Cockfights were originally held as part of a religious ceremony TABUH RAH and are normally staged in the village temples, and are held to expel evil spirits.
Over time the ceremonies have transitioned into an unofficial national sport, much the same way cockfighting has done in neighboring countries like the Phillippines and Thailand. Cockfights are typically clandestine and off limits to foreigners and outsiders. Cockrel ... the movie gives you a glimpse into a world inaccessible to most.

Little India KL
"On my first trip to Kuala Lumpur with an afternoon to kill, I decided to walk the streets of downtown little India shooting whatever caught my eye. The local vendors were all very friendly and happy to be filmed, which is not always the case. I sampled the amazing food on offer (wished I could've eaten in more than one place as it all looked so delicious) I was eventually invited to tea and a chat with a very cool elderly gentlemen and we spent an hour or so discussing a range of topics. It was a fine day, great vibes from everyone there. I highly recommended a visit if your ever in the neighbourhood." SLH
The North Sea
The North East of Scotland has many scenic villages and towns scattered along its rugged coastline. Newton Hill, just north of the town Stonehaven is one such nook. The temperatures get close to zero in this part of the world during the winter months, but a hike around the cliffs and down to the rocks to take in the scenery and watch the powerful North sea waves pound the shore is still an awesome sight to behold, and never gets old to me.
