Filming Part II

April 4, 2011 - Andrea Salazar

We wrapped up our last weekend of filming on April 3. We shot the basketball scene on Saturday, April 2 with student athlete Phil McDonald as our basketball player. Booking a player was one of the toughest tasks we had, but we were very determined to get a real player in order to accurately represent Lobo basketball. Luckily, Phil agreed to participate and did a great job. To our surprise, when we arrived at the Pit, the court floor was exposed. It lent itself to some beautiful shots from the tunnel. In fact, a few of us had goose bumps as we watched the scene being shot.

Our final day of filming was the longest one of the project because we shot three scenes – the graduation, the presentation and the performance. Unfortunately, we hit a few more snags on this day than previous ones. For instance, there was a set on the stage of Rodey, so we were forced to change the graduation scene, which then put us behind schedule. However, we successfully shot the three scenes we needed and came out with great footage.

All seven moments have now been captured. We look forward to polishing up the narration, recording it and editing the video!

For a successful weekend of filming, we’d like to thank: Brynn Moody, Daniel Maestas, Ryan Romero, Michael Blaisdell, Nick Salyer, Phil McDonald, Kristen Buckels, Cizon Melancon, the extras, as well as John Conner, Matt McKernan, Laurie Schatzberg, Nick Flor, Cinnamon Blair and Tess Goering.
