Security Briefing in Haiti
by Nari Kye, Associate Producer
Please note: There are no actors in the video you are about to see. The looks of sheer terror on our faces are real.
Only three days in, the cholera outbreak, the heat, the hostility towards the camera, and the overall lack of infrastructure has made this shoot one of the hardest on record. This country had just gone through a devastating earthquake that killed over 300,000 people and left over a million homeless and now an epic storm is expected to touch down. As the rain started to descend and the giant orange and red vortex on the satellite feed came closer and closer to Port-au-Prince, we thought it was time to have that inevitable “worst case scenerio” talk. Our intrepid security team, Rhidian and Rob, sits Tom, myself and Todd (filming) down to discuss some events that could very well occur in the next few hours if Hurricane Tomas hits Haiti’s capital.
