I’m not on a project team this time. It’s just me by my lonesome. Some very cool stuff happened recently in Uganda and there are new things on the horizon. I go for both of these things.
Without giving it all away, I can say that my work will be threefold. There will be only a small bit of video work to fill in some gaps in a previous project that we decide to tweak and use later in the year. The rest will be largely journalism with some still photography to highlight some very cool work and discipleship that is going on among local staff. I’ve missed having a heavier load of still photography, so I’m really looking forward to not having to think in video clips so much. Plus, with a 26-hour flight I figure I can knock out that whole editing project before I even hit American soil.
I will be missing the team dynamic as that is always one of my favorite parts of project trips. I really enjoy connecting with others over this shared excitement for the work. But I get the chance to live a few days with two staff familys I don’t currently know well and get to know them much better. My days will be spent working but my evenings will mostly likely be spent relaxing with new friends. No hunching over a computer until 1:00 a.m., staring at Final Cut Pro, tossing down coffee and gummy bears to stay awake. I might actually get some sleep on this one!
I won’t blog for a couple of weeks. Our website does not respond well to anything other than a screaming fast wifi connection so I won’t bother to try to blog from Uganda. You can find me on Instagram because it’s my favorite.
