Just got this sneak peek of the trailer for Guy Baker‘s film and thought you might want to take a look. It’s gorgeous. The audio is terrific. (I was location audio recorder, as an agent of Bitterroot Media, a pro audio recording outfit equipped with well cared for top of the line tools.)
I dare you to tell me you don’t want to watch this short film.
Forgive the abrupt stall out on my movie-a-day postings. Toward the end of February, business picked up and I no longer had the time to keep up with the posts. I hope to pick up the habit again, maybe in the Summer if things slow down. In the meantime, have a look at this fun(d)raising video I produced for the Johnson’s Creek Watershed Council.
Learn more about JCWC and contribute to their campaign for habitat restoration here.
Matt Clark, JCWC director, was a great collaborator full of energy, focus and ideas. (This isn’t the first time we worked together. He appeared as a body double for Van Oodles in Flossophy 101, a kids’ music video I produced a couple of years ago.) The JCWC shoot went really smoothly, except for the uproar of song birds that starting shrieking when a red tailed hawk decided to crash the set. The sun as our key light was a little tricky (as you can tell from the video), but it was a great day out at Johnson Creek.
Those who know me well know that I am a salmon lover to the point that I believe my spirit animal to be a grizzly bear (playing in water, eating fresh salmon, sleeping all winter and being so big, no one will mess with you, seems pretty awesome to me). This project didn’t just fulfill a personal satisfaction to create projects promoting the natural environment, but it also educated me on the possibilities of a natural balance within and urban setting. I had no idea that water bodies, like Johnson Creek, once referred to as “junk creek,” are capable of a recovery, so successful, that a few salmon have been seen in the water – an unprecedented event in the history of the creek’s monitoring!
In our modern times, where it seems the natural environment is only shrinking, it brings me so much hope to know that nature IS capable of recovery. Plus, I got to wear a wader suit – also, unprecedented.
