WHEW. A busy few days of filming. Even though my folks went away for a whole week and I had the place to myself, I didn't have much time to take advantage of that Tom Cruise-Risky Business style.
Thursday was out at Logan in the middle of the heat, lugging around predominantly unnecessary (but rightfully precautionary) lighting equipment. Filmed some interviews with people working as volunteers in a multicultural learning and aid centre and some volunteers at an aged care respite home. Tried a Lebanese Hawaiian pizza for lunch. Damn cheap out there. Like, 1994 prices. It almost made me wish I lived in Logan. Almost. Then the moment passed. :p
Friday was a horrifically busy day at work, but then, it's December and it's the biggest shopping centre in town. What did I expect?
Jac and I attempted to find a park at Chermside on Saturday but literally could not find a single one. We turned around and went home instead.
Sunday I wrapped a Christmas video for a mate's work - had to reshoot a scene because there was a joke involving two men getting married. Wasn't offensive in anyone's opinion - including several gay men at the work - if anything, it was in support of gay marriage, but one politically correct, super serious person got all Marge Simpson-style nervous and we had to go back to the drawing board! Oh well. The video turned out quite well. I'd post it but, well, it would be inappropriate and for internal purposes only.
Today, was out at hilly hilly Kenmore to do some more educational videos for QRC. I also discovered today that the two previous educational/experimental ones I'd shot and edited were online at a site called "Teacher Tube" - a YouTube-style video sharing site with a strictly educational focus.
Tomorrow, it's back into the breach that is Christmas retail and get into some hardcore editing for a DVD due next week.
