I am a woman possessed. By my capstone project. It has bewitched me body and soul (Happy 200th birthday, Pride and Prejudice!) But seriously, guys, this project is turning out to be one of the coolest things I’ve done in this city. If you’re looking for something awesome to do in your city, find a club near you (http://findaclub.usparalympics.org/) and shoot them an SOS: “Save me from the relative average-ness of my existence! Here are some times that work for me…”
(Disclaimer: I’m about two weeks in to my capstone, and I haven’t been blogging as I should. Everything I say may or may not have actually happened…here we go.)
Last Sunday, I dragged my roommate with me to Kettler Capitals Iceplex to do some filming for the DC Sled Sharks as they faced off against the Baltimore Bennett Blazers. It was a tough game, and with the starting goalie out sick, the Sled Sharks still managed to put some points on the board, but the Blazers took the W.
It was an amazing experience to shoot it. My first attempt for the project, so I took one or two cues from the reporters that used to come to the OTC…aka I was frontin…hard. I was climbing on top of things, shooting from overhead angles, panning the scene. I was like the Rudy of amateur film. I had no idea what I was doing, but dang it, I had heart. Nowhere near as big as the Sled Sharks, though. On to the next, fellas! We got a million ways to get it!
