The Year is 2013, Katherine McClure, a UC Santa Cruz graduate student leads a team of young female scientists through the jungles of Hawaii in search of an answer to an important question- How is the Hawaii Amahiki suddenly developing immunity to Avian Malaria? What can we say, outside of Shred America, this must have been one of the most intense, and inspiring video shots I have ever been on. Not only is Hawaii an amazing place to film, but Katherine McClure was a complete rock star from start to finish. Her work is super important and she continues her research on the Big Island to this day. I am forever grateful for her hospitality and for her willingness for me to document the process. Without her, this mini-documentary would not have been possible. Aloha.
