I´m not a friend of 48hrs or whatsoever projects.
Most of them are to Dogma, to handheld and to artsy for my taste.
Having said that, I did a under 2hrs project last weekend.
I was in an open air museum that features a complete German village at about 1910-1950.
No Disneyland, all the houses and “props” are real old. Absolute time travel.
I spend that weekend there with my reenactor/living history friends and we did an impression of occupied Germany in September 1945 – the first summer in peace.
Since I had my trusty HVX200 with me, I had the idea of a little drama.
The museum opens at 10:00 so we had 2 hrs to shoot when we start at 8:00.
Well, we started at 8:30.
Of course it was all very quick run and gun, handheld without sound and light – exactly the combination I usually hate – but on the other hand it also was some kind of challenge for me, since I never done something like that.
Here is some news coverage of that event:
