Just a quick update to show off what my wife just purchased for me. 🙂 Yes, that is lights and a green screen. Combine that with even our frugal (I’m not allowed to call it cheap) little tripod and camcorder, and add the audio gear and mixer from podcasting and I have the beginnings of a lovely studio!
Whew! What a weekend! I had a fantastic time with a great group of talented people who I have to give a shoutout to: N.R. Brown, Jay Chandlier, Ryan Easterly, Catherine Hefferan, Lauren Karas, Julia Myers, Matt Winterhalter, and Keri Williams. We are “Meridian Rain.” 🙂
We spent this last weekend writing, rehearsing, finding/setting up locations, shooting, editing, and submitting a short 5-minute film for the Disability Film Challenge (DFC). The DFC is a 48 Hour short film competition whose purpose is “to motivate disabled and non-disabled film makers to be proactive in the film industry and to supply them with a means of exposure for themselves and their projects.” I included their promotional video below.
And because I cannot hold back the awesome, just a few photos from the set of “Barking Brothers”:
PS And as a fun little fact, Team Meridian Rain consisted of far more cast and crew with disabilities, than without.
Just had to share. Tonight is my first class on the essentials of documentary film. I’m so excited!
