"I remember the time we were
in Africa -- Mozambique, actually, for the first time. We'd been to Asia
-- there was a shoot in India and Bangladesh in the mid-90s, and Anne
and I had been to Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia before --
but I will always remember that slightly vertiginous feeling of both jetlag,
and of being completely at home at the same time. I guess that's one of
the big reasons we love doing this work: it is a beautiful world, and
we get to travel far and near to hear and tell important stories."
Nepal, Italy, France, The Netherlands,
India, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Nicaragua, Namibia, Mozambique,
South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mexico -- you name it, we've been there! We
travel for pleasure when we can, and we travel for work much of the rest
of the time.

Travelling as a film crew requires
a bit more work than leisure travel, if only because we can't afford to
be off our game when we're on the clock. So we read up on travel
warnings and visa requirements, exchange
rates and time
formats and ATM
When we come home, the US Customs
Service could ding us for a 10% duty on all of our equipment if we don't
register with them in advance to prove that we owned everything before
we left. We've got model, value, and serial number for everything from
battery packs to walkie talkies listed out and stamped on their special
take our own water
bottles -- each with its own filter inside the bottle! -- when we
know that drinking the local water is risky. David puts a sock over the
faucet in the hotel bathroom, so he remembers to brush his teeth with
filtered water. And, of course, we take the appropriate drugs
to keep the nastiest bugs at bay.
We love our travel agent. Drop us
a line and we'll send you his number.
