Cinematographer Giovani Lampassi was filming on location in Louisiana in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit. He witnessed first hand the devastation of the people. How quickly their belongings became reduced to what could be carried in a garbage bag and it got him thinking. How could he be prepared for if and when there is an earthquake in Los Angeles? Giovani has worked on shows like Party Down and Up All Night. He’s currently on hit Fox show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. And he’s known amongst his friends and colleagues as being uber prepared. Most specifically the apple of the eye of his preparedness is having a 72 hour earthquake ready bag in the back of his car. He is so passionate about this in fact that he’s dedicated a whole blog to it! He encourages all of his co-workers and family members to have one, and He’s spent hours and hours of his personal time combing over the details of his bag and perfecting it to a science. In this episode, you’ll find out what is a 72 hour bag, what goes in one, and why, and how Giovani became so passionate about this.
