Produced for the Oceanika MerFins to announce their first release of the MerFin product...and just a great chance to work with some super cute kids!
I storyboarded the shot list the night before and didn't even give the kids the script. We just gave them their lines and said "Action!" I think that's how I'm going to work with kids from now on since they already have so much natural exuberance and the more we rehearsed, the more scripted it all sounded. Gummy worms help too!
In case your wondering, we didn't have budget for sound, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of my camera mounted Sennheiser ME-66 shotgun mic. There's definitely places it suffered, but not bad for a super low budget go at it.
