Perhaps the title is a slight exaggeration, but it did rain today. For the first film on the blog, I took out the camera to shoot around Bristol, asking as many people as possible; ‘What wildlife issue most concerns you?’
By ‘as many people as possible’, I mean four (technically five, but one was a two-fer). Just after bumping into and talking with a couple of good friends, the camera battery died. I pin this on not turning the camera off whilst pacing around in a “predatory manner” trying to wrangle in unsuspecting people for interviews.
That description of my technique is courtesy of Tim Melling (pictured), who did an excellent job of keeping the camera dry and also acted as the sound guy.
So, a semi-successful trip. The rain didn’t help but we overcame it. In the end, we were beaten by technology. Will have to go out another day to get a few more interviews, then onto editing.
