Capturing the Stories of Breast Cancer Survivors with PinkAid
Breast cancer is a topic that affects millions of people worldwide. It's a battle that many face every day, and it can be a difficult journey for both patients and their families. That's where PinkAid comes in. PinkAid is an organization that provides support and resources to breast cancer patients and their loved ones. This is why Blacksail Productions felt incredibly honored to be chosen to film roundtable discussions for PinkAid.
The filming itself was not an easy feat. Our team had set up a gorgeous interview setting outside about halfway through the shoot. Everything was blocked, lighting was set, and about 7 minutes into shooting all of a sudden the skies open up and it absolutely downpours. There was nothing on the radar, skies were clear, just all of a sudden a black cloud came overhead and downpours for a good 5-10 minutes. So we rushed and had to bring everything inside as fast as we could and dry everything off. Luckily nothing was damaged. Not wanting to risk any random rainstorm again, we adapted and set up everything inside for another interview session. The team was using two cameras, with one on a Movi stedicam providing a wide angle shot, while the other was manned with a telephoto lens to switch between the speakers. The apurture lights, really showed their worth in their weather protection capabilities.
