The Filming Finale

March 30, 2012 - Rachelle Ray

Last weekend marked the end of filming. We captured our final scenes with the help of the enthusiastic and super-cool mechanical engineering racing team, highly skilled soccer team, beautiful flamenco dancers and of course, some friendly faces and a few torches. Clear skies, warm weather and just a bit of wind let us show off the best of New Mexico.

All in all it was an interesting and highly productive week. Thankfully, we didn’t wreck the racecar and the RED camera as we aimed to get that perfect shot. We managed to avoid catching anything on fire (except a few controlled luminaria bags) during our reproduction of UNM’s longstanding tradition - The Hanging of the Greens. And, we didn’t melt in the New Mexico heat. Our team captured a lot of amazing footage, and even a bit of Spring fever.

The dousing of the last luminaria candle marked the wrap up of our filming days and the start of the editing process. Dan and Tyler are taking lead on editing, and I personally can’t wait to see the first rough cut.
