    Default documentary in Haiti

    Hi everyone, I have an order for a documentary in Haiti. I'll be soon based in DR... How "safe" and convenient is it to cross the border a few times carrying quite expensive video devices...

    Well, I'll go with my own car fore sure. But I stil dont know where I'll go in Haiti. Certainly different places. But as I said, I'll be carrying some quite expensives devices: camcorders, computers, tripod, steadycam, drone equiped with a cam...
    My concern is safety in Haiti of course. But also, about passing expensive devices through the border...

    Depending on where you go I think it may be worth it to have security.

    You also need a solid contact in Haiti; someone of standing. And you MUST report to the embassy of your country. You might even need to have a Minustah guard...

    Well I cant really travel with bodyguards, namely because i'll have to meet and interview poeple. It must be done in a cool atmosphere... I think I can handle that part. But it's crossing the border which bothers me the most... I wouldnt want to be asked some idiotic taxes because I pass the border with expensive stuff...

    If that is the case I would stay in the DR and go to Quanaminthe for the day only.

    Or any border town if you are not going to have an escort.
