    Sente Sente
    A Luganda phrase meaning "Money Money".



    Tag: Winning a brutal street-fight is only the beginning.

    Story Behind the Film: My former project "The Community Room" took a backseat as Ken Kupelian and I had the opportunity to travel to Africa, into Uganda, to do some photojournalist work for the KUZA non-profit program.

    I did not think we would be able to do an entry since we were busy with the trip, but while we were there we had a day free to shoot something. So we organized a project with Morgan, one of the students funded in the KUZA program, and shot an entry on location in Kampala, Uganda with students and locals.

    This looks great! Shooting overseas can be tough because you aren't familiar with anything, AND if you forget something (like charging a battery even), it can kill an entire day due to sketchy power and the likes. I'm looking forward to this!

    What did you shoot this on?

    The location, backpack and action shots make me think of the opening chase scene in Casino Royale (2006).
    Lots to live up to.

    Looks good. Best of luck.

    Yeah, I had that in the back of my mind! Such a great scene.

    Shot on an overheating T2i and a GH2. Audio on a Zoom.
