Well things got really busy once we hit Week 3 and began official filming. There just aren’t enough hours in the day for planning, filming, getting from one part of Ecuador to another, reviewing footage, taking pictures, sitting down to eat once or twice a day, and, well, you get the idea.
When shooting week wrapped the editors were already hard at work. The rest of the crew shifted gears to translations, finding media, and interview selects.
Many awesome cuisines were had in the last week as well.
And then a fine lunch…
And a fine dinner at La Cucharra Magica…
Everything came together for one final evening gathering at a fine cafe on the river Tomebamba known as Republica Sur.
You can ask the crew members about that wild swing day that didn’t quite fit into this post.
On every Actuality Media program we take a morning or afternoon aside from the main project to put the crew together, filming on a set for the first time. It’s a great time to field questions that would otherwise interrupt the main project, and always a fun time.
The TECHO crew got their practice day early to film the Colecta event. There was not early event that need be filmed for the FCT crew, so we paid a visit to the very friendly, oft-shopped at jewelry store down the street.
Unfortunately after shooting was done, our subject let it be known he didn’t really want to be on the internet. The shoot was really an exercise, and the important part was getting through it together. However, the Editor was able to put together a very fine cut and after a private screening with our subject he gave the okay to put the video online. So without further adieu…
