Getting the Shot
JARED MOSCHCAU LUSAKA, ZAMBIA AFRICA – Today has been a very exciting day! We were able to film several scenes for the feature. It is was great that we didn’t have any issues or problems throughout the day with the equipment.
Last night I approached Cyndi about my role on the film. After a discussion, I have been moved from the feature film as a boom operator to the position of unit photographer for the documentary. I love it! It is exciting, busier and more rewarding. Cyndi and the crew give me feedback. Sometimes they tell me how I can improve the shot, sometimes they tell me how bad a shot is and then a magical moment happens. A picture that I took comes up and everyone says “WOW, what a great picture.” I can’t help smile because I took that picture! I cannot tell you how great that makes me feel.
Another thing I have been enjoying is watching the other crew members do their work. Ginger has made some amazing portraits of the actors. We all want one! It doesn’t help that she feels bad she isn’t able to make one of everyone. Gingher and Kai are both leaving tomorrow. We are just getting used to working all together and now some are leaving. It makes me realize how fast the time is going.
