Video: Six Months At Sea In The Merchant Marine

In this short documentary, Martin Machado tried to answer some of the common questions that he usually gets about shipping. “The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on my six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. Thanks for watching.”
