- The inner-battle
on whether I should capture this in 2D or 3D was
so strong. I mean, up until the moment we left...
in the end, I knew I had to go flat because I
would need to be AT the stage to do it in VR which is
super distracting. And this is where VR180 will never
be preferred: moments that need context. Same reason
the NBA would never just go to a camera on the
player's head for the main shot. Cool for a highlight,
but you need to sit back and see the whole floor. It
would work at center court looking left and right,
TOO BAD THEY DO THAT in 360
instead of VR180 3D.
FUCKING HELL PEOPLE.
- Ahem, anyway - the
talent show... just watch this
- More than the
cuteness of it all, just being able to capture a
moment in a friendship is really, really cool. Autumn
and Vienna have been besties for awhile now and I
remember that feeling at that age. I'm whisked away to
my 6th grade talent show with Brendan Murphy (which I
tried desperately to find video of EVEN in 1989
and couldn't) where we lip-synced Spike Jones:
Glowworm. We've been friends ever since. Something
about sharing that adrenaline spotlight with someone -
it's something that you share with your friend
uniquely. So that's my first feeling...
- ...the second of
couse is, they're having fun... and Vienna used to be
the shyest kid on the planet. You can still kind of
see it, but man - she's busting out of her shell.
Whereas Cam was a ham from the moment he could walk,
Vienna is just recently becoming more
- The big thing of
course is that these jokes are actually pretty funny.
I know Vienna and Autumn worked with Autumn's mom on
the script so I don't exactly know who wrote what, but
it doesn't really matter. They worked on a routine,
they performed it with joy in their faces and the
teenagers "can't even" line legit made me guffaw even
though I was trying to be silent.
- Anyway, just a
happy memory that I'm glad I can cement into The
