• Shooting in Socotra, Yemen 

    Last month I was in Socotra shooting a music video. Floating adrift between Yemen and Somalia, it’s not the easiest place to make a film, but if you can negotiate the various obstacles and refrain from reading the travel warnings it makes for a stunning location. We shot on a new Red Epic, I’ve included some screen grabs below. A lot of people have been writing asking if you can pull stills from the video stream now it’s in 6k. And the short answer is; it depends.

    Many thanks to Adhem, Johnny and Abdul.
