Sure, perhaps it's been a bit between posts, but rest assured things are moving forward nicely. Remember, we work full-time and we are always at the mercy of our subjects' availability. All that aside, yesterday was one helluva day! Three, that's right THREE interviews scheduled, all at different locations. It resulted in some fantastic stuff, that said, Murphy's law did make a few appearances... two of the three locations we experienced unforeseen ambient audio issues. After reviewing the rushes, I believe with some elbow grease, these minor audio issues could be resolved. Fingers crossed. Below are just a few pics of yesterdays adventures!
Day 4 was great! You probably can't make out the backdrop of this location, but we are in fact in a media booth above a baseball stadium. Now you're probably wondering, why on earth would we be conducting a hockey documentary interview in a baseball stadium? Well, the person we interviewed was Bryan Graham (pictured below) and he's one of the co-owners of Thunder Bay's baseball team. And his connection to our story is that he was a radio announcer back in 91/92 covering the Thunder Bay Thunder Hawks. He had some great insights to the team and what it meant to Thunder Bay. So that's why we thought shooting in a media booth actually made sense.
Another day in the books! This past weekend we had the chance to sit down with Bryan Wyatt. Bryan was part of the media who reported on the 91/92 Thunder Bay Thunder Hawks and had a great perspective on what the team meant to the city, and also, told a unique story about an experience he had with the Colonial Cup! Below are some images of our latest shoot.
Yesterday evening we filmed our first interview for CUP CONFIDENTIAL at the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in Thunder Bay. It's a wonderful place to relive and educate yourself about the very strong sports history this whole region has. Diane Imrie was our interview and was extremely knowledgeable about both the 91/92 Thunder Bay Thunder Hawks team and the whole Colonial Cup story. Below is the only photo we took of the shoot, my apologies, but because this was our first interview we were all extremely busy doing other behind-the-scenes things.
Well we're underway! That's right, over the weekend we went out to capture some b-roll footage for CUP CONFIDENTIAL. To those not familiar with what b-roll is, basically it's the shots you see overtop of the 'talking heads' in documentaries. These can often be location shots, scenic shots, action shots, product shots, you get the idea. For the most part, filmmakers require TONS of b-roll footage because adding it to documentaries makes them far more interesting. Below are a few locations we shot at around Thunder Bay.
