Day 20: Finished Filming-Almost

3 08 2009

By: Joslyn Young, Director & Founder

Friday was a long day to finish off a long week. Everyone was hot and tired from filming late on Thursday night, and we had a lot to get done. However, we did almost finish with filming all the scenes for Through Our Eyes. We still have a few of Rashad’s scenes (Joe’s scenes) to do next week, but they should be pretty easy to get through.

The group has all been trying to raise money for their H.Y.P.E. campaign t-shirts. Their goal is to have 100 or more t-shirts for the “Helping Youth Positively Excel” campaign by August 19 when there is a Mario concert in Chester. The teens plus about 90 other people will wear the shirts, which will sort of be a teen resource guide, with phone numbers and contact information for local teen resources on the back. They’ve been selling candy all week and feeling the joy of making some profit to donate towards this cause. They’ve still got a bit more to raise, but they’ll get there, I’m sure.

I can’t believe we’re 2/3 of the way done with the program. We’ve got two weeks left to edit EVERYTHING, which will be tight, but I think that the teens will be able to get it done. They took quickly to Final Cut Express the last time we worked with it, so I think it should be ok. Plus, we’ll be in the air-conditioned Language Resource Center at Swarthmore, so we won’t be competing with the heat when filming, which is always good in my book.

We don’t have air conditioning in our room upstairs.

Pretty unbearable with sea breezes and highs of 78.
