Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting rehearsal footage for the project, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…It's day two of shooting.…You know, actually I'm going to say it's our second day of shooting.…When I say it's day two of shooting it makes me sound like…I'm in a hostage situation of some kind, and I'm actually really enjoying myself.…Yesterday we shot at Steven's house.…We got the interview that's going to form the basis…of the whole piece, that's what I'm going to edit to.…And we knew that today was going to be coming into a rehearsal space.…We hadn't been able to see the space ahead of time,…and its turned out to be pretty much exactly what I expected.…This is a retail space that's been converted…into a theater with some theater seating in it.…
And it's a, it's a very nice little very functional space.…When we came in, we had to spend some time thinking about, how do we use this space.…It's all black.…There are no windows. There's some theater seating.…So, I spent some time looking around with the camera…taking meter readings, trying to figure out how the light's working,…trying it with the house lights on and with some stage lighting on.…
