Fun w/ cherry blossoms, digital video, photo & animated gifs

Too much fun was had yesterday morning at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

For a little project I'm working on, I wanted to film the cherry blossom trees from underneath the branches with the lens pointed straight up into the blossoms. I also wanted it to be filmed very slowwwly and smoooothly....it was very very hard and although my muscles are super sore today, I can also now do 50 pull ups (the hard kind with knuckles pointed away from me) in rapid succession.

Here's my serious filmmaking in action - Notice, no smiles, no jokes!!


A big shout out is in order to Jonah, the best Assistant Director a girl could ask for...full of moral support and a great eye for location scouting and documenting...all photos taken by Jonah!

Here's a laugh riot in the form of an animated gif...Jonah's photos strung together into this masterpiece and looped for maximal enjoyment:


And here's evidence that I have mastered the highly technical, extremely difficile cross step (difficile means difficult in French, Mr. President):
