Today's Video Slot is a shoutout to director AJ Greenwood and DOP Tammy Williams, (with a nod to Finch and to Google), whose series of short films give a moving account of the lives of six members of the LGBTQIA+ community in the Asia Pacific region.
According to an article in MA+D Daily, in pre-production, Greenwood worked alongside each person to write a piece of prose about their individual identity journey. She then designed a visual portrait based on the everyday life of each individual to be used as a backdrop in which to set their story.
With the pre-production, all executed remotely from Sydney and Auckland, the team took off on a whirlwind shoot schedule through the Asia-Pacific. As Covid-19 began to spread, they had to navigate the production process to round off the seven-part series. It was a one-and-a-half-year journey for Greenwood.
