Getting the first shot is always really difficult. In fact, one of my fellow classmates in college made a documentary on getting the first shot. He took footage on a set while they set up for, I think, around eight hours before they finally moved to the second shot they needed.
Yeah. That's filmmaking. And I realized, after the fact, that I was a little brief yesterday. We were able to solve quite a few problems, such as: Getting the lights to no longer reflect in the whiteboard or off the books on the bookcase, position the table properly, and generally reduce Justin's reflection on the whiteboard.
And this morning, we had another issue to resolve:
Ironing the Lab Coat
The "oh no" you hear from Amber at the end there... that was the iron staining the coat.
Once we got going, and Justin got his "groove" back, things went quite well. Some very funny stuff... which is good. We know others are going to like the DVD when we're rolling with laughter while we make it.
And one of the things that I find funny is that somehow Justin's face tends to end up perfectly behind the "white balance" icon on my screen.
