What happens when old corn brooms are replaced by newer brushes?
Journal videographer Ryan Jackson created a short film about one such broom for the 2013 Brier.

This whole thing was shot in only four hours! I used my hacked Panasonic GH2 cameras with Canon 24 f1.4L. 50 1.2L, 70-200 2.8L, and Olympus 7-14mm f4 lenses.

All the volunteers showed up at 8-a.m. and had no idea what the script or anything was. I played them a rough cut video I made from the storyboard and we started curling!

Here is my original storyboard. I had thought it would be cool to have the rocks talking and picking on the broom but then I decided that talking rocks would be confusing so I just used music.I spent hours writing and re-writing the script to make it as simple and manageable as possible.  It's way easier to fix your script before you shoot than after!

This was the final shot of the day. I used gaffers tape to mask my 7" monitor to 2.35:1 aspect ratio to help with framing.

Jason Franson was helping me for the shoot and took this photo of me filming Carleigh Johnson with the broom.  I was able to pull the scene off with only two 500-LED light panels and one small 160-LED light panel to the right.

To mask the aspect ratio on my monitor I got a big sheet of screen protector type stuff from ebay and drew the lines on with permanent marker.

But obviously the real solution is to get your hands on some sweet anamorphic glass!

Great work as always!


 
hair chalk set

Style your hair while you chalk. The feel from twisting
makes the chalk launch a lot more pigment.

Generally clean the surplus natural powder out right after chalking every piece.

If you’re blonde or you have blonde tips, DO NOT wet your hair before chalking.
I will stain if you do because adding water to pure pigment
creates a real dye. Go for it if you’re okay with the staining for several washes!
If you’re looking to do color for the day,
do not add water at any time.

If your hair color is anything darker than blonde and you don’t
have blonde tips, you’ll NEED the water. Increasing the pigment is exactly what can help the colours to show
up on more dark head of hair. Mist a little water about the strand using a squirt
jar, then chalk it up! It will not stain deeper locks exactly the
same way it is going to on lighter in weight head of hair.

If it’s just not showing up, add a little water, red heads- try it without water and.

It just is determined by how lighting or dark your red-colored is.

Only use “soft pastels”. THESE are our all time faves.
Senellier brand name pastels have the brightest and the majority of intense be worthwhile we’ve at any
time seen… and we’ve experimented with a lot. They’re nearly $4
per piece at Blick, which seems a little expensive, but so is hair color- and hair color removal.
Typical chalk doesn’t job the identical.
It’s tougher to exchange and having it to stick to your hair can be almost
difficult.

Smooth chalk pastels is available at any significant craft retailer.
Just never get “soft chalk” pastels perplexed for oils pastels.
Ask a sales person if you’re confused.
Removing essential oil pastels might be a nightmare, along with, they’d really feel tacky.
