Completely unrelated to this post - I watched the documentary your sister was playing proud of you for and I have to say, she has ample reason to be. It's a good thing you did and were involved with. I am proud to see people I dig do such things.

Thanks a lot, John. It was a little difficult filming over there at times and, upon returning, I found myself with a great deal of footage that was not easily usable (e.g. shaky handheld stuff where we couldn't easily use a tripod, etc.), but I think the content is certainly there and it was a great experience for myself and the mini-"crew" I had over there.

The second episode comes from much of the same shoot as the first, but I'll be going over to Sri Lanka again later this year to shoot the third episode and I think there will be some major improvements in visual presentation (while keeping the content solid).

It was an incredibly powerful experience being exposed to all those people who went through so much, and I am glad to be a part of bringing some more light on it.

Anyone can check out the videos at the Rebuild Ampara website ( They're a little compressed, obviously, but we had to keep in mind that people all over the world needed a realistic shot at downloading them, so we kept them as small as seemed reasonable :-) .

FYI - I watched both the documentary clips too ... nothing 'shaky' about it. Outstanding job by those volunteering to help in such a devastated region. (including you)
