Find Your Unknown in Vietnam
Fixer in Vietnam has helped a film crew from a travel gear company in the US film in Vietnam their commercial video of "Find Your Unknown". Eagle Creek is encouragement and motive for us to discover the amazing wonders in Vietnam and across the world.
The Eagle Creek's fast-paced crew spent 8 days in Vietnam and it was a really tight schedule. In 6 shoot days, we travelled continuously from Hanoi up to the North West mountainous town of Sapa. On the way to Sapa, we stopped at Thac Ba lake, the place called "Ha Long on land". It was only us and nature. The environment was so peaceful and quiet.
From busy streets and historical Long Bien bridge in Hanoi, we went to a desert human-made fresh lake in Yen Bai province and then ripened rice terraces in Sapa. In Sapa, we had a visit to the house of an old shaman. He was an ethnic minority of Red Dzao. At his house, we experienced a memorable moment with local people sitting around a traditional cookstove in the middle of the house. He also prayed the luck and good health for filming crew.
The next filming destination was amazing waterfalls in Dalat, the cool city called little Paris in the Central Highlands. It was really "Find the Unknown" journey and challenged the physical strength of all crew members. We filmed at two waterfalls, the first one was the Pongour waterfall and the other was the Datanla waterfall. Three models shared together interesting moments when they experienced adventurous activities at Datanla waterfall.
The final shooting location was hot and desert sand dunes in Phan Rang, Thap Cham city. It was a journey through the night from a cool city in The Central Highlands down to a beach city located at the area where rarely rains. It is said that this area received only a few days of rain each year. Three models had a three-wheel motorcycle ride on the red sand dunes in Phan Rang, Thap Cham city. And together, we enjoyed the sunrise on top of a rock close to the coast road.
It was a pleasure for Fixer in Vietnam's team, local crew and all models to have this opportunity to work with filming crew from Eagle Creek. It was a tough challenge to shoot Find The Unknown project in 5 amazing shooting locations in Vietnam in 6 shoot days across the country with different terrain and weather condition.
