My new career.
Anyone want to buy a bootleg copy of Eugene Onegin? hehe, just kidding of course.
I am officially a professional videographer.
I filmed the opera Eugene Onegin yesterday. This is now part of my job.
I think I have a fairly decent eye when the camera is still, but I am no so good at moving it around. I kind of felt like a mom videotaping a dance recital. I guess it’s OK though since I’m not really filming to use the whole thing, we’d for the most part just be slicing together shorter clips.
At one point I accidentally hit the button that stopped recording in the middle of an aria.
And then there was the time I opened a cough drop and looked up and realized that the character I was filming had completely walked off screen.
Yeah, don’t book me for your weddings any time soon…
p.s. did I mention that I’ve never even touched a video camera before in my life?
Don’t forget to Donate Now to the valsicle fund! I’ll be frolicking in Lake Michigan this Sunday in support of the Special Olympics. $1, $5, $10…anything is graciously accepted!!! $75 more and I get a Chicago Polar Plunge towel. OOooohhhhHH.
