The Begowatts Video Recap

January 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last Thursday, I met up with The Begowatts to film their NPR Tiny Desk submission video. 


I used two cameras to film the video, and it took about an hour and a half to complete the shoot. We were originally going to film on Wednesday, but we had to reschedule for Thursday because of the weather (shocker). The deadline for the video was on Sunday, but I wanted to have the editing done by Saturday, if not sooner. Having the video done in three days was already going to be challenging enough, so losing that extra day wasn't ideal.


The next day, I began editing first thing at 6:30 a.m. The only breaks I took from then until I finished at 4:30 p.m. was to take Malin out twice. I know a lot of people have work days that are close to 10 hours, but I don't know how many of them have worked on the same thing for that amount of time. By the time I was finished, I was exhausted and felt like I was on the brink of insanity.


The hour of filming, grueling 10 hours of editing, and the parking ticket I got were worth it though, and I'd jump on the opportunity to do it again. As always, it was great working with The Begowatts again, and I thought the video turned out really well, especially considering the circumstances. 


Also, shoutout to The Begowatts for giving me credit every possible chance they could.
