After a very relaxing day at the beach, we met at the music school early in the morning to continue our documentary productions. Before we started, Albert went over the plans for the following days with us. Albert then led us in some yoga poses to stretch our body. Then we gathered around in a circle to give each other shoulder massages to relax tight muscles. With the energy revived, another wonderful day began.
As we planned, the video team broke into two groups to keep the project moving forward. Riley joined Sheheryar and Thomas to help them carry and set up equipment. They went to picturesque beaches to take some B-roll for the documentary. The images and footage they took are as beautiful as paintings. The rest of the video team was focusing on editing and creating lower thirds. Osvaldo and Andy were working on shortening the interview with Yannos. They watched the footage over and over again to locate the essential parts from it and put them into logical orders. They discussed the script with the research team, and recorded a temporary voiceover to make the editing much easier. I was sitting next to them creating the lower thirds. Since the textures I had so far were not very satisfactory, I hope to take some great high-resolution images tomorrow.
The 3d modeling also went very smooth today. I talked to Wen and she imported the statue model into Maya so she could break them into parts. We left the music school around 5:30. On the way back to our hotel, out of the car window, the first rain at Paros arrived.
