Daily Log: Sunday. May 23rd, 2010.

Sunday. May 23rd, 2010.

Today, I went to shoot Anthony for the first time. I got to his house at 102 E. 7th Street in between 1st Avenue and Avenue A, and I got to work.

Anthony's front door. Yes, thats a boat propeller.

This was my first time filming legitimate video, ever, so I definitely had anticipatory anxiety about the whole thing.

I arrived at 3pm and ended up leaving at 7:30pm! I shot a lot of B-Roll, which is footage that is meant to illustrate the non-spoken part of the broadcast piece. It gives the piece breathing room. Adrian and the News/Doc students (Graduate Dept. of NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Institute for Journalism – did I not tell you? The class is mixed with Undergrad and Grad students) say that one can never have enough B-Roll.

I took this pretty literally and shot 2 hours worth of footage. I hope it isn’t horrible!

I couldn’t wait to screen my footage in class and see how I did.
