Building the SUDU

This will be a short post, since it must only be said that trust must exist for a crew listen and work with care.  As I have seen far too often, a crew which has neither respect nor trust of its supervision has no accountability for the quality of work it produces.  When language is barrier – as here in Addis, where 2 of my crew out of 30 spoke a working level of English – this is even more so critical.

Imagine for a moment, a short, blonde, white woman giving orders on a construction site in Africa.  Respect for leadership only occurs when there is a clear respect for the laborer – which means being willing to drop the camera and to share the hard work with your crew, to earn it.
