Shot on location in Jordan for feature documentary The Portal - www.entertheportal.com
For Mais the fence was a plaything, part of the scenery, no more significant than the rocks she skipped over. I wondered if or when that perception might change. I hoped in a way it never would.
The images in this project were taken on location whilst filming the documentary 'The Portal', a film seeking out stories of inspiration and hope. From the USA, to Jordan, to Australia we followed in the footsteps of several awe-inspiring individuals, learning how they overcame adversity and crisis to explore the unique potential that all humans have to change our world from the inside out.
The film embodies a hybrid of documentary storytelling and dramatic reconstructions of pivotal moments from our characters' lives. This project illustrates moments from our filming journey - where we not only captured what we set out to film, but also had the privilege of experiencing so much more.
