Thank you for keeping up with our blog or checking it out for the first time. Let's get to it!
We are now on Instagram!
We recently shot a dance video directed by Aztek Studio producer Veronica Salas at Wilson's Dance Studio in Pittsburg, California starring the studio's owner, Hannah Wilson.
The video was shot on a Blackmagic URSA Mini and we had a FloLight representative on site who provided the lighting equipment.
The fog machine we borrowed did not work and I made a joke of using the FloLight rep's electric cigarette vaporizer, well that's exactly what we ended up using along with Hannah's husband's vaporizer to "smoke" up the scene. They had the entire room smelling like Skittles. Hey, sometimes you have to improvise on set to solve problems. Fun times.
We wrapped the shoot with an interview with Hannah and called it a day.
In the last post, I shared news that Sandra and I had become Pictoclik board members.
