A week in Production..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The past week has been a flurry of activity. Being in video production has taken me to many interesting places.. You can’t say the job is boring. This is but a brief recap of what and who I’ve had the chance to work with:

  • In Lake Louise with a Canadian Paralympic Snowboarder
  • With an independent musician from Guatemala shooting in Inglewood and Canmore.
  • In a hockey rink with the Canadian Sledge Hockey team.
  • On the Canmore Nordic Centre track in the middle of the night.
  • In a nice warm office filming a fun parody corporate video.

I’ve watched an AD pull a dolly on ice skate with the grace of Elizabeth Manley (You remember who she is.. don’t pretend!), saw a RED Camera get bolted to a paddle to be used as a sling arm, I was told how it is possible to put a GoPro in a Pizza Oven, I worked with a pair of mexican theatre actor brothers and a pirate.

My water cooler is a craft services table on the side of the hockey rink, my TPS reports are bogeys walking into the shot and my pieces of flair are the set radio that I automatically get assigned when I get on set, plus batteries and call sheets.

My start time is earlier than yours, my quitting time is later than yours and sometimes I don’t even get to go home… but I wouldn’t want to do anything else in this world. I run late to meet with friends because I’m rendering and uploading, my notepad is full of ideas and my Pinterest is a look book for stupid ideas. I don’t have any games on my iPhone but I have 10 different video making apps on it. I have a slate on my ipad.

If any of this applies to you, know that you aren’t alone. If you’re out there making film, shooting videos and doing what you love, hang in there, just keep at it.

Sometimes you get to capture something beautiful..

The General’s Connection presents: Ayamarca Festival of the Dead

 

Had the pleasure to attend and capture The General’s Connection Presents: Ayamarca: Festival of the Dead.

Fire performances, dancing, live bands, stilts, contests, Burlesque, Gorlesque (I knew this existed, didn’t know what it was called) Alt Culture in general. The face painting was pretty cool, love the “Dia de los Muertos” look, the Catrina look on people. This is just one part of Calgary’s diverse art scene that a lot of people don’t know about.
