Path to Dien Bien Phu

Recently, I had the chance to work as an extra for a film commemorating the 60th year anniversary of Vietnam’s victory over the French. Besides pretending to be a French soldier I also got to pretend being a war photographer between takes. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do it again.

  1. Fantastic Tyler! What an experience… I think the idea of being a ‘war photographer’ was perfect, I sure wish I was there doing that with you — a woman’s point of view! Who knows what I would have seen through my camera ‘eye’ — do it again if you have the chance,,, if you have any more photos — POST them!– great,

  2. Wonderful Tyler,,, what a great experience, did anyone of the Vietnamese actors offer their perspective on this event? Are they just like young people here, don’t know anything about anything!!! ? Just curious what the participants knew before they read the script…? Deb
