Between shooting stills in Afghanistan and filming a documentary in Pakistan, Ross also just completed a 30 second ad with Antidote for the Haven Partnership, an Irish charity working in Haiti.
The key issues the charity focuses on are water, shelter and education, so along with ad agency Red Dog a campaign was created to put things in perspective for Irish viewers. Ross and the Antidote team spent 4 days in Haiti, working from Port au Prince and other nearby towns to get in and document people’s stories and the conditions being faced there. It was a truly unique trip, witnessing some of the world’s poorest places, but also experiencing the pride and generosity of the Haitian people.
The tail end of our trip also collided with the arrival of Hurricane Isaac, which meant airport closures and a few more days on the ground until it passed! The finished piece is here.
