Arriving in Laos

Life and Times in Laos

It has been about six months since I packed up my life in Melbourne and moved over to Vientiane, Laos. After a bit of travelling around Myanmar, I settled in Vientiane with a few contacts, no job, no place to live, and not knowing how much photography or video work I would pick up.

Still editing the documentary about RAMSI (Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands), I was in no rush to go in search of work. However not long after arriving I found myself taking on a position as an art director at the newly formed digital marketing agency (digital monkey). With clients such as Beerlao, Pepsi, Kuanjai magazine, Miss Laos, it was an exciting introduction to Laos.

Over this time I have worked mainly within digital marketing, on facebook campaigns. I have also filmed a few event videos, a quick ad for sting energy drink, as well as some behind the scenes videos.

A short travel video filmed in Myanmar (Burma). Filmed using Canon 5D MII, over a 1 month trip in Yangon, Mandalay, Inle Lake, Bagan, Kalaw. The video takes in some of the highlights of a beautiful country that is still just opening up. I hope to go back and travel through there again to see how much it changes.
