Los Angeles B-Roll
First day of production. We took Los Angeles B-roll, images we’ll use to tell the story of the journey: driving on the road, the skyline, the traffic, the desert, and the sun setting behind the mountains. Sharat mounted the camera on the hood of the car for these shots with the help of our cinematographer Matt Blute (in the picture) and Don Presley. Don joined us as our first Assistant Camera, but he also plays the role of the second assistant camera, the film loader, the master of lighting, electric, lenses, vehicle repair service, and off-color jokes. He turned down two jobs to do our project, including a feature film and a music video. Matt, Sharat, and I are grateful to have him. The first day was a success.
