In the small town of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, one man has made it his mission to lessen the amount of trash in the dumps, to make use of materials that can't be tossed aside, and educate the youth - specifically he collects used milk containers. Designed to prevent leakage and spoilage, milk containers are perfectly made to never degrade in strength.
All footage for this video was shot on Canon XA10's by two Actuality Media crews preparing to film the short documentaries "¿Que Será del Caribe?" and "CoopeTal"
Actuality Media is on the ground with every student crew to oversee production of these short documentaries, providing the services of executive producer, production manager, location scout, additional editing, and whatever else is needed to complete the project.
We are more than a film study abroad program.
