I created this GlobalPost series, which offers our field correspondents a venue for video snapshots of places and people that we find impressive, crazy or just unmistakably cool. The minute-long pieces show viewers everything from anti-Ebola evangelists in Mali; a Backstreet Boys-singing rebel on Syria’s front lines; or – in a this piece I shot as a prototype – a Rio de Janeiro slum where gunfire has given way to the best fried chicken in town.
