Kickstarter - Video shoot Day 1

After a good amount of planning, scripting and organizing we started our first 2 days of filming for our kickstarter video. With the help of Joe, our talented cameraman/editor - we made some creative fun shoots.  It was also really good to be working with someone who knew what they were doing behind a camera, it left the 2 of us to argue/direct the shoots, although we did shoot from small digital camera's too, to give different angle's on the action. Overall we got some great footage and insights into the brilliant if slightly crazy minds of the artist...well all of us, actually!

Day 1 Jesse's Place -
Our first port of call was Jesse, our character concept artist, perhaps a little shy of word but definitely not shy of pen, in no time he was cracking us up with his expressive character designs. In another post we'll go into one of the ongoing character designs for apple, currently under progress. We'll also let our  Kickstarter supporters vote for their preferred design on a new character we are currently bringing into the story.

Here Anatole clearly shows Jesse how to draw correctly!

Day 1 Brad's Place -
After our morning visit to Jesse's place in south park-slope we took a stroll to Brad's digs about a 10 minute walk away. We couldn't believe our eyes when he opened the huge red door (from the era of horse n cart) and we went up some industrial steps to his crazy cool Brooklyn loft apartment.

Day 1 - We think the shoots went pretty well, it was a good learning experience, we plan on using the footage for the initial Kickstarter promotional trailer and also a couple of insider look videos, into the processes behind Organic Panic.
