Normally the first week of shooting is a wee bit hellish. Things never go smoothly. Although there is of course a little bit of that settling in happening this go-round, for the most part, the last two days have been pretty damn good. Today, is was all boys, all the time. We shot two shows, the first guested by Stephen Houghton of the blog, Hizknits. He was delightful and the show went off without a hitch. The Knitsters where awesome too and because of the new way we’re shooting, we actually had, IMHO, the best end of show banter ever. Hopefully that will come through in the final edit. Anywhoodles, here’s Steven and I posing purposely awkwardly, a la prom.
This next one is of us with the Knisters, Aaron, David and Kristin.
John Brinegar returned as a guest for the 2nd show today. His stuff is always cool, urban and fun to work on. This first picture is of him and producer Lorelei prepping for the next act while Dave & Andri (art department) set up the props.
Like with today’s first show, two of our Knitsters for this one were guys. Both had learned to knit from their respective girlfriends and although they’re good friends in real life, neither one had told the other about their knitting habit until being called to do Knitty Gritty. I thought that was adorable. After the shoot we convinced them to step away from their needles to skate a bit on the set.
This last one is from my perspective at the demo table, taken of the Knitsters hanging out between takes. From L-R is Eric, Danika and Mike.
Ok, I’m beat so I’m going to wrap up some work and get into bed. Have a good night!
