CNN: Parts Unknown: Anthony Bourdain: Chiang Mai

Great episode of discovery with Tony and Andy Ricker: uncertain cuisines (pork parts, fish organs, etc,) and heavy drinking pushed us to use a selection of Zeiss ultra prime lenses to help accentuate those crystal clear moments of cultural connections, to the blurry unsobering moments after breakfast at a distillery: a karaoke/brothel, and a mesmerizing landscape of rice paddy terraces, thai.urban.ness.. all with a portable green.screen to move in/out of a Thai reality that brings the audience into Tony’s world and a world that our amazing graphic department created to move Andy and Tony in/out of dreamscapes and into the Chiang Mai reality of dreams and discovery.
