Fishy Sweat, a documentary movie about TPI Brondong
Fishy Sweat, my first short documentary movie, will be released in a week. This post will tell you how I do the voice over from my bedroom with portable booth. The process is really quick.

You’re about to watch Fishy Sweat, a short documentary movie that features the Fish Auction Center (TPI) Brondong, which we released on September 3, 2015. You can watch it as a streaming video or download the movie to your phone or computer for free.
In the process of the movie, we used an Android phone to shoot the videos and spent four hours taking pictures in TPI Brondong, blending with many fish and sweaty workers.

Although I had experiences with WordPres self-hosting, in fact, this is my first time buying a hosting and domain–so far I had relied on free hosting services like 000Webhost or Kilu.de, which both have very limited features and bandwidth.
