Movie Making with Christine

Movie Magic
Today, Christine asked me to help her with her project that she has to do with her informal apprenticeship as a Director of Photography. Her assignment was to shoot in 16mm film a story that she had come up with on her own. Christine has never shot in film before. She had never used a Bolex before. She had never had to come up with a script before and shoot a story without the luxury of editing afterwards (this was a requirement of the assignment). And I have never been ON CAMERA before.

We were both a tad stressed.

Anyhow, once we got going it was actually super fun and it was cool to problem-solve... Christine would keep forgetting to wind the camera up and so she'd end up with these short segments she didn't intend. We had to make it look like she did it on purpose, of course. I think that it's going to turn out pretty good. And no, not because I'm a spectacular actress. Christine made it easy on me.

Looking forward to what we came up with!
