What a day

Well, you may have noticed that there was no update last night.
That was because after filming and editing both the soccer and the basketball camps, I was so beat that soon as I was done catching up with my family, I crashed. Hard.
You might be thinking, "How hard can it be to film some kids?" Well it's hot, humid and I don't just sit there with the camera, I run after the kids and interact with the kids. Doing this for 12 hours (10:00 am-10:00pm) can be quit the workout mentally and physically.

The good part is that I got a lot of my filming for the next week done, so I can take it a little easier the next few days.
I might upload a little bit of the camp video after I do some more editing.

Keep an eye out for more updates!

The calm before the storm

Today was a day of rest. I woke up, went to church, and took the rest of the day off.
Now I'm writing this listening to Audio Adrenaline (oh yeah).

Tomorrow is the storm.

I will be up to my ears in work, starting with shooting video for the soccer camp and then editing said video. Soon as that's done it's off to the basket ball camp to shoot video till 10:00 PM. Do a little more editing, then bed.
Yup, it's going to be a long week and I'm gonna need all your prayers.

Playing Dead

Today Jona (Jonathan Banegas) had me help with the filming of the main movie that we will be showing to the youth at the main camp (Aug 3-16).
I was an actor in the movie this time around, my part was the dead guy.

It's a lot harder than it sounds, no breathing, itching, or moving at all, and the grass would stick to my face.
Scene after scene I would try to hold my breath until someone would yell out "cut!"
I also had to get a makeup job done to make look less alive.

( I had to sit still and remember not to sneeze, for both our sakes)

As I said in my last post, this year's theme is the three musketeers so the the costumes and setting have to be to date which can make finding places to film more difficult.
This is an old Spanish farm that has been converted into a restaurant someone let us use.

(We use only the highest quality video tools.)

Safe and sound...alseep.

Well, it was a long flight and somehow my seat was the only one that couldn't recline.... yeah, it was a long flight.
None the less I got to Barcelona safe and now I am going to bed (it's 12:00 here).
I have to wake up early tomorrow because I am going to help Alex finish filming the main camp video.
This year's theme is The Three Musketeers!
So it's off to bed for me.
God bless and good night.
