THE JASON WILLIAM INTERVIEW + TRABAJANDO 4 PART
Things just kind of lined up perfectly and Jason made it to Barcelona for a month, his first time ever leaving the U.S. and we ended up filmed most this part. I knew that he was going to see Barcelona in a unique way, and I wanted to document it as best as I could.
