He’s shot films deep in the jungles of Thailand and Brazil, through bone chilling temperatures in Antarctica, and under strained conditions from political coups to maneuvering in a cave of prehistoric art with only hand-held cameras and minimal crew.</p><p>His latest work is extreme in a different way… a startling public service announcement about the dangers of texting while driving.
