Day 2 - Hal before the peep storm

Posted by Sally

Monday was our second day of shooting and our first official day with the “Melcam”, our 2nd unit behind-the-scenes digital camcorder (very nifty Canon Vixia HF20) operated by production assistant extraordinaire, Melanie Saumure. The Melcam will be your eyes and ears into our filmmaking process so please check out our first video blog and tell us what you think! The idea behind the Melcam is to peep ourselves, peeping Hal as he peeps himself. Get it? And we don’t want this to be just a one way street. Although it’s not particularly interactive at the moment, as production heats up we’ll start posting these video clips more frequently and will be inviting your steady feedback. By early July we hope to start live streaming on location, allowing you to chat with us while filming interviews and so on. By the time we get to the editing process it should all be very transparent and, hopefully, a truly interactive doc! Tentative first attempts have already been made by Jet (read about that here).

But we can’t be interactive if nobody talks to us…so please send us a comment!

Wow! This is a real Peep-fest over here! I love the idea of vlogging about a documentary that’s about vlogging…it’s all so karmically interwoven. This project is very exciting. It was awesome to meet you today. AND 4 out of the 5 cats came out to meet you so you must be good people wink

I really like the idea of peeping yourselves while peeping Hal! Brilliant idea and I will definitely look foward to seeing both his peep experience and yours as well!
