Jim, in the blue cap, was the cameraman, and when he was ready for us to start speaking or moving, he'd say "go ahead."
The crew checked out the footage on this small screen.
We shot in the front yard, back yard, kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining room, bedroom, entryway and driveway.
(This shoot took place in mid-June, but John wouldn't let me post these pictures until the video was complete.)
But this wasn't the end of shooting. We also shot footage at the Wedge Co-op and SET's composting site in Empire Township, shot all the props in a basement storage room at the Government Center, and we recorded voiceovers at the Government Center.
The next week, we were at the Wedge, at 7 a.m. The store is a beehive of activity, as Jim put it, at that time of day, with people stocking the shelves and getting the store ready for shoppers.
On the left is Steve from Public Affairs. He turned the outline into a script and directed the video.
And then later that day ... this is a storage room at the Government Center that was transformed into a studio for us to shoot the props.
I was in charge of arranging all the props and making sure we shot all the props on the list. As you'll see in the video, there were a lot of props.
We got a preview about halfway through the editing process. Deb (not pictured) did a fantastic job of putting the video together and editing it.
And then the week after that we went to the composting site, which you probably recognize from my earlier posts. I coordinated with the transfer station so we could film a load of organics being delivered.
Annnnnddd, here's the finished video! Scroll down about a third of the way down the page. You'll need Microsoft Silverlight to play it. Hope you find it useful! Making this video was a wonderful experience! I learned so much, and it was a lot of fun!
