Jeff Erwin’s latest journey took him to Cambodia with World Vision and the popular Christian Band, Big Daddy Weave.
While there, the members of Big Daddy Weave had the amazing opportunity to see first hand some of the incredible work World Vision is doing to help rehabilitate young women sold into human trafficking, treat and feed homeless children in Phnom Penh and implement technology to innovate farms on the outskirts of the city.
The band also had the opportunity to meet their sponsored children for the first time. They recount their experiences in this appeal video that is being used during their concerts to encourage the audience to join them in sponsoring a child in need.

The MoVI M10 is a handheld 3-axis digital stabilized camera gimbal, so advanced it redefines the possibilities for camera movement. We are excited to have this new tool in our arsenal. It is the very first bit of test footage we made using the MoVI. This example was shot by a single operator using a Canon 6D and a Canon 24 mm Cine Prime lens. In the future, a Canon C300 with a 24 Prime lens will be our standard set up.
