The main challenge with this video, as it is frequently, was finding the location.
We had a place in mind, but it didn’t pan out, so we had to revert to our standard procedure of “wander aimlessly around the university until we find something”, which we do all too often.We left Matt guarding all the equipment while we did this, and he fell asleep while doing so.
Once we found the place, we rearranged some desks in the middle of a hallway (you can see some more of the desks in the background, oops). I believe I had an astronomy class in that building at one point.
The actual shoot was very straightforward: Matt on camera, Paul and Tim swapping out boom duties, and all the lines going quickly and easily. I think we shot less than half-an-hour of footage in the end, which made editing even easier. It was a short video, and a good shoot.
Paul and I shot the merch ad in my laundry room, later in the week.
And now: photos!
