Starting today, we'll be periodically releasing outtake clips from the upcoming One Week Job documentary. The first is an interview shot with Kyle MacDonald, better known as the guy who traded a paperclip for a house. Filmed in Sept 2007 in Montreal, Kyle talks about the importance of finding a job, higher education, and how to take care of your little place in the world.
Now that we're officially done logging the tapes, I've actually started the editing process! That's right, the documentary has entered the editing stage. Having attempted for the last week to edit the opening, I quickly realized: I'm still missing some key interviews. That said, January will become "the month of shooting follow up interviews."
In preparation, I've started playing around with lighting, something I didn't do during the actual One Week Job project. (When you're shooting on the fly, lighting just isn't possible).
I spent the last 5 minutes playing around with Ikea desk lamps to see if they'll work in a pinch. Here's the result below, including an adlib on my part:
If you're from London, Ontario, you may have caught my interview with Jeff Kelly on FreshFM. We discuss how you can become a producer for the doc, and the project as a whole. Check it out in 3 parts below.
