We shot in the beautiful province of Batangas in the Philippines, along Taal lake where our story takes place. Since we shot in July, weather constraints prevented most of my available contacts to be available, leaving the crew to be extremely skeletal. I was willing to operate the camera myself, but put my foot down on having a dedicated sound recordist who used the Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic and the Rodelink system. Having this setup turned out to be an advantage for us, as we found ourselves being extremely flexible and even finishing ahead of schedule.
