Live blog
8:45 Left hotel.
9:00 Stopped at gas station. There was an 8 year old boy selling ripped DVD’s so we all looked through the movies he had and took his picture with him holding up his DVD’s, his name was Marcos.
9:31 Arrived in Guatemala City…headed to the orphanage Casa Barnebe.
9:45 Arrived at Casa Barnebe.
9:45 – 10:00 Scouted shot locations for interviews.
10:00 – 10:30 Set up two teams for interviews.
10:30 – 12:30 Shot interviews with the Director and one teacher.
12:30 – 1:00 We broke for lunch. Myra prepared lunches for us and it was sort of a Pimento Chicken sandwich. Again, delish.
1:00 – 3:00 We shot two more interviews and are now in the process of shooting B-Roll.
3:00 to 5:00 We shot B-Roll and one more interveiw with Pedro, the husband of the director.
5:00 AND THATS A WRAP.
Now we are off to shoot another sunset on our way into Guatemala City.
We arrived at a site along the side of the road, in front of a hotel and there was a great shot of the sunset. However, after we started rolling the hotel manager told us we couldnt, mainly because part of their building was in the shot. So, we moved just down the road to a three story fifties diner. There was a perfect shot of the sunset there. Some of us were a bit chilly so we bought coffee. Some of us bought milkshakes. Since traffic was bad we would have gotten back to Antigua late so we stopped and ate. Once we were back on the road we arrived back to Antigua and now we are all dumping our photos to an external hard drive.
What a day. We got some great interviews and and Marko and Mary got tons of B-Roll. And the surprise of the day was when Cesar showed up at Casa Bernabe!!!
Well, better get back to logging footage and uploading photos.
Buenas Noches,
Major
