Seeds of Struggle

Fresno trip: • What went well?

   Angel: Turned out nice
   Anka: Worked out with three cars & coordination
   Jabari: Went very well though not meticulously planned, still efficient and productive
   Dennis: Haven't seen the footage but it seems like we got enough coverage
   Liz: A bit chaotic, but we pulled it together. Good on accomodations and snacks. Great documentation
   Dragon: Good job for a first trip, good learning

• Where can we improve?

   Angel: Whenever we go out to shoot, we should have a sound recorder ready to go in case our interviewee starts saying interesting stuff before the camera crew is ready
   Anka: should have talked more about the shoot itself, communication
   Jabari: no complaints, we did well with what we had
   Dennis: Important for us all to be on the same page before a shoot, no more last-minute stuff
   Liz: Would have liked better meals, food planning and preparation
   Gerald: "Fail to plan; plan to fail." Be flexible, but still have a plan.
   Dragon: Better planning ahead of time about the purpose and elements of the shoot, better food accomodations

• Plan another shoot? He invited us back for the harvest.

   Or we can send a camera with him so he can gather footage himself! Gerald volunteers to train him on the Sony Handycam.

Intvw. with Wanda Stewart:

   Dragon, Dennis, Jabari, Noemie, Stephen
   2 hour interview at her home, really good stuff in there.
   Didn't get b-roll! Working the garden, harvesting herbs, gathering eggs, etc. Plan another shoot

• Where can we improve?

   Use a stand for light reflector
