We went down to Pioneer square and just got some footage of random folks, trying not to be too obtrusive. I used my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, along with the Metabones Pocket Speedbooster and a Nikon 55-300 zoom. Unfortunately my monopod’s bottom foot needed tightening, so the video was a bit shaky. Shooting longer distances didn’t help, either.
Back at home, I cut the best parts together and wrote an appropriate voice-over text. I tried reading it myself first (sitting in the car in the driveway, to minimize reverb) but it wasn’t nearly as good as Jennifer’s readings, so that’s who you hear. Then I quickly added a piano based score using Ableton’s Piano sample set, and that was it.
It turned out very differently from other submissions. It’s a long shot but who knows? For me, I learn something new in each little project I complete, so just for that it was valuable to me.
