Bella Bella - Days 5 & 6
The skies opened up! These days were rain, rain, rain! And when it rains in Bella Bella it REALLY rains. Very Hard with BIG drops! Luckily it also stops from time to time... and lucky most of the work we have to do is inside!
Natalia, Gwen and Sarah, during a break in the rain, captured Gwen dancing and Natalia drumming - a beautiful scene by the Lama Passage - they also made their credits and added in their language class footage...almost there!
Angelica and Alexa (with Alexa staying late) cut down their 30 minute film down to 8 minutes - well done! They also fine tuned their edit and added more b-roll - they have created a really thoughtful, even flowing film....exactly their vision. It has real potential to change lives and influence people. Mentor Lisa g cried!
Today, Sawyer, with all his animation complete…happily headed back to school.
Jai, had another shoot with actors: Bella playing Izzy and Sarah playing Izzy's mother. It was a really poignant scene when Izzy's mother confronts Izzy's use of drugs and alcohol. Sarah got all choked up, as we all did with the emotional intensity of the scene! Jai also recorded her friend, CJ, as the voice over for the bully AND found copyright-free music to use.
Elle and Astrid got their second interview, this one with Elle's Grandma which was really lovely. They also added b-roll and created their end credits….
The mentors and the youth centre made posters and handouts to give to everyone tomorrow to advertise for the screening.
