Target length - 4 mins.
I wanted to make something about how immigration is good for my anti bnp yt channel.
I filmed this in about an hour total i the evening just around closing time. I tried to get a stunt friend for the hair cutting bits that I knew i wanted to use but none was available so that is the other barber in the chair volunteering ( i go there often).
I shot 17 mins total. 8 mins was interview.
Camera - JVC DV5000 on bean bag ( sd dv )
Mic - Sen 416 out of shot to lower right.
Lighting - available, strip lights on cieling - nasty.
Edited forever as my net was down for three or four days. 40 hours total.
I pretty much knew exactly what shots I wanted before I started but I hadn't written anything down.
The only thing i would change is the second cut to black - too long now I think.
All feedback welcome as I spent ages on this trying to make it involving and 'watchable'. Oh yea - all the aspect ratio fiddling - just somethnig i am playing with at present in many of my films.
Music is some bit of mantovani and then twin peaks theme by morricone - i think. Uploaded as a 720p 3mbit wmv.
