A few behind the scenes photos of the short doc filming

When you’re doing street interviews and documentary-style production, there’s intentionality mixed with a high degree of spontaneity.  Here are a few shots from behind the scenes.

This is one of my favourite moments, when a wedding couple agreed to give us an interview.  We’re just setting up the shot beside their wedding car.

If that looks like a super awesome microphone looking like it’s set up in someone’s clothes closet, then you’re right!  We laid down some voice-tracks at Grant’s place (Editor), and the best quality audio was if we diffused the space with lots of materials that can absorb sound.  Nice wardrobe, Grant.

The opening and closing of the short doc was shot at Canadian Mennonite University in the beautiful historic building on the north side of the campus.  Fun fact…the photo frames on the walls are of graduated classes from the founding colleges.  My Dad’s photo can be found in one of those frames from the late 50’s.  Kind of cool to be taping a film that leans on the legacy of creativity my parents instilled in me during their many years of radio broadcasting.
