悄逝的记忆2:拍摄的第二天

小小感动 (我的Crew

 

今天和昨天一样,天还没亮就下起雨来了!上个星期的下午几乎都下起雨,我就希望这几天的天气可以做美,这样就不会妨碍了拍摄进度。虽然昨天天还没亮就下起雨,我没有担心。因为知道早点儿下起雨,就越可能早点儿放晴。昨天下雨的时候,我就对我的摄影队伍说,如果再下起雨,我就要到林厝港拍下雨的景像。因为雨景也应该很美丽吧。我说我要拍雨打在屋顶的镜头,这样下雨才听得到声音嘛。我记得我说这句话的时候,我的录音师抬起头看了我。

 

今天天又还没亮就下起雨来了!我就抓紧机会到一处拍摄雨景。我问说用不用我把伞撑起来。谁知道不一会儿,录音师就拿出他自己的“家伙”——是个专用摄影机铺盖!!我说,诶!这个哪里来的?他说,“我带来的,因为昨天你说想要拍下雨。”

 

!!!!

 

这两天虽然有Wide Angle Lens,但是因为我的摄影机镜头匡镜跟我借来的 Lens不符合,所以无法派上用场。今早我也只不过问了问我的摄影师Set Up Ring 可以到哪里买到?我刚刚才发现,原来傍晚拍摄结束后,我的摄影师跑去买了适合用的Lens Ring了!!!

 

我的crew adorable hor? 真是讨人喜欢!可快要把我宠坏咯!呵呵!!

 

Diminishing Memories II: Second Shooting Day

A little moved by my crew members.

 

It has been raining for these two days and I had been hoping for a beautiful bright day so that the weather won’t affect my shooting progress.  However, it has been raining for the past week and it did so yesterday.  It rained very early morning so I was hoping the rain would perhaps stopped by the time I started filming. I told my crew members that if if should rain again today, I shall go film the rain in Lim Chu Kang as it ought to be beautiful. I wanted to film the rain dropping on the zinc roof top so I could hear th esound of the rain too! Then, I noticed my sound recordist turned to look at me, little did I know why. 

 

It’s raining again today and the first thing we did was to go capture the rain scene of Lim Chu Kang! I was wondering if I should put up my umbrella to "protect" the camera only to see there’s already a little "rain coat" being put on the camera! I asked, "hey! Where did this come from?" My sound recordist said, "I brought it along because you mentioned you wanted to film in the rain yesterday."  

 

Wow! It’s such a nice suprise as I didn’t expect my crew to be so "attentive". hee ;p I also just found out that my cameraman went to get an adaptor ring when we finished our shoot today to ensure we could fit our wide angle lens onto the camera on our third day of shoot tomorrow.  I was only curious and asked him where should be the best place to get the adaptor ring.

 

I find my crews so sweet and "adorable" and I felt so pamper by them. 🙂 Nice…  

Shooting Day 1

悄逝的记忆2:拍摄的第一天

第一天为我独立制作的第二部纪录片进行拍摄。在林厝港农场访问了一些公众,问他们对那里有一部分农场将被发展成娱乐农场有什么看法。访问后发现新加坡人说话小心翼翼,但我需要的是坦白的声音。以为洋人可能会比较勇于坦白,谁知关机后,他才说了我需要的真心话。原来居住在我国几年了的洋人说话也会有所保留?是因为处在我们这样的环境的关系吗?还好很幸运的,之后居然采访到一个愿意坦诚说出自己看法的新加坡人,和外国人。拍摄结束后,我想起今天的采访内容,还有我其中另外一个主要个案的眼神。我的心,隐隐作痛。

 

Diminishing Memories II: First day of shoot

This is the first day of my shoot and I was at Lim Chu Kang farm interviewing some public for their opinions on the fact that some parts of it will be developed into an "agri-tainment" recreation farm area. Generally, Singaporeans are still very "careful" in giving their opinions.

I thought I would get an honest point of view from the expatriates, only to my suprise. I wondered if it has to do with staying in this environment that has an "effect" on him. Anyway I was lucky to finally get some honest answers from two other public- one local, another expatriate.  By the end of the day, I was thinking of another main case study in my film that I somehow felt a little painful on my chest. I couldn’t help thinking about what was being said by this main case study that made me a little sad.
