Film 25/52 - Charis Reviews...

Last night Charis and I shot this short review of iPod applications made for children.

Youtube link.

The apps we review this week are MyPaint Free, I Hear Ewe and Peek-A-Boo!
I know this isn’t very experimental in itself but I do have a reason to try out this camera and lighting set up.  It also completes the set of "Never work with children or animals" experiments.  I think this should really be "Never work with children or animals when filming live or using long unedited shots..."

Shona made me add the titles about not letting Seren play for hours because she doesn’t; I just muddled my words up.  The Isaac Asimov reference you'll have to work out yourself.

Lessons Learnt:

1.  Don't get out the iPod while Seren is still in the room, as she will want to play as well.

2.  Don't preplan which apps to review, just do the ones Charis wants to play with.

3.  Get a mic closer to the action (or buy a tie mic)!

4.  Always use really cute and very bright kids when filming!  I have an advantage here obviously...
