So our production phase has begun. Mark, Keneilwe, Sinazo and Thulani make up our Nab’Ubomi 2013 Production Team. Starting with Lady Grey Arts Academy on Tuesday 8th October, they moved on to Queenstown Girls High School today (Wednesday 9th)… and so as I write this we have 2 of the 12 films ‘in the bag’.
This year we’re shooting the films on the Black Magic Cinema Camera – an exciting new little toy for our team – and the packaging came off the day before filming commenced! While I’m not on crew this year, tucked away back home and playing mom to my own kiddies, I’m hearing reports of how ‘gorgeous’ the picture is and I cant wait to see footage once the team gets home again. Maybe I’ll get Mark to write a blog about using this amazing little camera once he’s shot our 12 films.
The team takes a break now until Monday 14 Oct. For the next 2 weeks they make a film a day – 10 films in two weeks. Hope they all rest well this weekend!
