Tour of Asia Shoot Day 1
So I was going to try and update you guys on this shoot in a timely manner, but things got hectic so I’m finally getting around to it.
Shoot Day 1 was scheduled to be an 8 hour day.
So first things first. Food. Eating right and maintaining energy is super important during shoot day. I’m still doing well when it comes to eating healthy and working out, so this is what I packed to eat:
Turkey, spinach, tomatoes, and feta cheese
Lo Mein and Szechuan Chicken
Trail Mix :3
Coconut Water and Regular Water (it was SUPER hot)
Without giving too much away, I am shooting about 8 short videos. For the first day, we planned on knocking out 3 of them. It was kind of hard because we had scheduling conflicts with our talent so Reed and I tried to plan accordingly. I shot some B-roll for the first video and then we decided to break for lunch since one of the shots included eating, we figured we’d actually eat while I filmed some of it. Once we sat down and ate, we planned out what else we needed to shoot.
The list didn’t seem TOO long at the time, but we ended up not finishing everything on it. :C Boo.
Gotta love Asian Chao! ^_^ Lol.
Right after lunch I shot some dialogue pieces and did a photoshoot for shirts that ASA is selling (if you’re reading this and go to UCF, you should TOTALLY get one.) The photoshoot was their Public Relations officer’s idea. Here he is trying to decide what to wear (he’s such a girl :P)
Boom. Karl ain’t confused no mo’ LOL. (I hate the font just ignore it)
This picture^ became subject to SO much conversation about raffling him off during the event, my manager taking a “response” picture which is here, but it feels good to know that people like the picture. Can’t wait to see the reactions of the videos I’m working on! :D
After the photoshoot, I shot for one of the countries and some insert shots but as we were about to shoot for Vietnam, we realized we didn’t have some of the props and a lot of people were getting tired because of this, we decided to call it a night and I sent everyone home. Below are my on the spot shot lists (Yes, this goes on in my mind. Lol.)
After shooting, I went over to Karl’s place to help him work on some choreography for a sorority competition.
I put on my Kuya’s snapback for motivation. Lol. In order to compensate for what we didn’t shoot the first day, the main actor and I along with Reed decided to wake up bright and early. I realized how tired I was, and decided to crash at Karl and Kuya’s place. Karl and I stayed up till 4am editing pictures before finally going to bed.
Day 2 recap is coming soon. :D
Hope you guys are enjoying these.
