March 29 - Filmmaking (Day two)

Okay! Today we actually got started with the shoot for the 360 video THERE'S A MONSTER IN THE PLAYGROUND. The plan worked out pretty great... we had the playground all to ourselves, the early light was fantastic, and the kids got to run around in a playground.

Looking over the footage, I think I'm the biggest problem with the film so far. It looks too weird when I stand up as the monster. I gotta channel my inner Andy Sirkis and really get into being the creature if this is going to work right. I had a few good moments, though.

 I have to stay in this squat position the whole time next time we shoot. You can see Zephyr running in the background.

I also have to work a bit with Lyric on taking direction. There was a lot of him going rogue on set today. But on the plus side, when I asked them to take 5 while I checked what we got, this happened:
