Assignment: Taipei, Ryukyu Islands, Kagoshima & Shanghai

This most recent overseas assignment took me to Taiwan, Japan and China. Lecturing on the craft of cinematography on board the Silver Shadow, a luxury ship operated by the Italian cruise ship company Silversea, based out of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. The talks for guests centre on my work as a cinematographer, particularly in the field of documentary. From time to time I shoot short sequences at various locations and screen them at my lectures.

A clear day in China is rare. This short video shows a stunning sunrise unfolding during our slow sail up the Huangpu River to arrive near the centre of the city of Shanghai. Packing a Sony A7R Mk2, I chose a Sony PXW-X70 recording in 4K DCI to shoot this piece and edited it with FCPX.
