Today we were in one of the prettiest regions of Indonesia, so lush & green in the central southern tip of Java.

1st location was a Stalagmite cave in the grounds of an Ashram, such a peaceful, colourful garden that surrounded the entrance down into the deep dark cave, wet, muddy & cold. You could see the mist gently hovering over pools of water, the only sounds were the occasional drops of water from the jaggered roof and the flutter of bats as they flew by our heads.

A challenging scene it was, working with minimal light & slippery surfaces, not to mention our Lead, Jessica being bound & blindfolded!

The afternoon saw a journey that seemed to take forever – but finally took us to the waterfall we had been wanting to shoot at. A stunning waterfall that had rare access to the very top was our 2nd location & here we shot a scene filled with fear, self doubt, then finally achievement. With some assistance from a friendly local, we pulled off the action scene with success & made the long journey back to our hotel, feeling pleased with our accomplishments but sad that tomorrow will be our last day in paradise.
