City of the Dead
Couple of changes to viewmagazine with 800px video strips and an article and video on international assignment. Cairo was awesome and I have more than enough hours to produce a range of mini docs.
The landscape and architecture, French influenced in places, was intoxicating. Robb (Visual Editors) and I produced a podcast which is on Robb's site that sums up the last days.
I'm looking to open up more and become more expansive in pointing to original work I'm coming across all the while. Currently watching Beastie Boys - Isle of W. festival - Whoah that takes us all back.
Now then did I tell you about the city of the dead - a region in Cairo where about five million people live amongst the buried. "For many Cairenes the City of the Dead is a mysterious, foreboding area. Many Cairenes are aware of its existence but few understand this group of vast cemeteries that stretches out along the base of the Moqattam Hills" More from this website which captures it pretty well.
