Production Update: Less Than One Week
Next Friday, we will begin production on our adaptive sports video. Pool will be the first sequence that we shoot. As day one of production draws closer, we are making final arrangements with cast, crew and our location contacts. The Student Union ,at The University of Utah, has generously offered to let us shoot the pool sequence in their activities area. Because this is a video dedicated to adaptive sports/activities for individuals with disabilities, we will be utilizing a completely wheelchair accessible pool table for our shoot. The pool sequence will most likely be 25-30 seconds of the finished project, which means each shot must be carefully orchestrated and executed. Our entire pool sequence has been storyboarded, which will help both the DP and myself in constructing shots.
On a personal note, I'm excited to finally begin shooting. This project has been several years in the making. We have one year to shoot, edit, color correct, sound mix and score the entire production. So, I will have a lot of work ahead of me. As will the rest of my collaborators, whithout whom this project couldn't take flight.
