Story & Editorial Project: IDEOCookstove Initiative


Job: Editing, color correction, music/sound mix

……….. worked with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves to identify opportunities to increase demand for clean cookstoves in Tanzania and beyond.

This is a video that I cut together from video supplied by IDEO. Working with the writer I crafted a film would show what the day-to-day lives of women in Tanzania using cookstoves actually looked like.

Cinematography: Purgatorio – Feature Documentary

Rodrigo Reyes Director

Justin Chin Director of Photography

Camera Sony NEX FS100


“A searing, horrifying, at times starkly beautiful documentary. Brilliantly photographed, this is a strikingly assured work […] offering an impressionistic ground-level view of the simmering humanitarian crisis occurring just outside, and often within, American borders.”

– Andrew Barker, Variety
