Ginkers: The Ginkening

Sunday we had another shoot and it went very well. Our subject was very receptive to being filmed and quite relaxed, which made for a good shoot as Rob elicited great anecdotes from her as Matt and I sat back and watched. It's one of the last shoots we're going to do as we wrap up the film and it has been a hell of a fun ride. Between the people I've met and the stories I've heard, I'm going to be sad to see it end. Of course I'll see them all again on the computer as we edit them, but there's something so personal about filming the documentary that it's hard to shake the thrill of peeking into a bit of someone's history. I also got to use my steadicam, which was a thrill. It worked well from what I could see. I can't wait to check the footage more, as I was walking backwards and that's tough to do normally, much less when you're walking through the woods and trying to avoid branches, trees and elves. We have another shoot coming up at the end of the month. More on it then.
