Hey Glob people!
We recently headed across the river to Elizabeth, New Jersey with our fabulous Director of Photography, Dean Peterson, to do a camera test in some GLOB LESSONS-esque locations. While it's impossible to find a true stand in for the Red River Valley out here on the East Coast, we were excited to see how the camera would hold up in different interior/exterior situations.
While we got kicked out of our first motel because they thought we were shooting a porn (to be fair, I guess there are very few reasons why someone would rent a by-the-hour room and bring a camera), we were thrilled to find out that Dean's camera choice, a Canon G6, will do a killer job of bringing the visual world of GLOB LESSONS to life! Dean has been around our project for a couple of years now (he's a fabulous filmmaker in his own right and has been a real mentor to us every step of the way) and he definitely has an innate understanding of the look and feel of GLOB LESSONS. It was thrilling to see something that has been in our imaginations for so long appear before our eyes. The camera is lightweight and portable, which will allow us to keep our film production streamlined and intimate, while still capable of capturing high quality images in low-light (key for those North Dakota winters).
We put together an edit of some of the test footage, if you'd like to get your first look into the cinematic world of GLOB LESSONS!
We are bringing Dean to Fargo at the beginning of July for our next pre-production trip! We can't wait to show him around.
