We went live on kickstarter.com tonight http://kck.st/reFeg5. On Thursday, we shot the video interview with Mary Wollstonecraft (Shirley Riga), myself, and the maker of Denim Candi Jon Verwiel.
We sat outside in the backyard of our friends Sue and Richard and Jonathan Moch did the videography. We were all set up to shoot, the color right, the framing right — and Jonanthan said action, and the cement blaster next door started with a pile driver to break up the porch. We went and asked how long they were going to be working, and they said a half an hour. So we rehearsed what we would say and then finally, they stopped and we were able to proceed. As soon as the camera turned onto me, my mind went blank and words somehow stumbled out of my mouth.
When it came to Jon’s turn, he kept looking at the camera no matter how many times we told him to look at me. And then I’ve been editing the video since Thursday, and I finally finished it today and uploaded it. I think it came out well, and it amazes me we all sound coherent. But we believe in this project and product and want to see it succeed. Our goal is keeping us focused. I hope you think it’s worth it too.
