This is my dream and my worst nightmare. I am really thrilled to begin the 2nd chapter of my three-part project.

The 1st chapter was shot in Iceland and it was by far one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. It went beyond what I could have ever expected.

Now we are going to Danakil Depression, Ethiopia, the hottest place on Earth. Things are about to get dark and beautiful. Thank you so much for making this project possible. It means the world to me. You have no idea.

I want to see hell on earth. I thought I already experienced it but this seems more legit.

Depression sold me.

Our intention is to raise $6,000 to fund our trip. We set off for Addis Ababa on January 23rd and need your help to make this vision become reality. The money is being used to cover travel costs, the tour to Erta Ale and Danakil, and the film equipment.
