Big day..

\
8:27 – Today, in a couple of hours I will make a movie with 30 kunming artists. Fun and Scary.\
\
11.11 – eight artists done.. I can tell you one thing.. Children are MUCH easier! On top of that I’m not fully satisfied with my light.. I changed so that everybody could stand and with a bigger background and I never tried it before. But I cannot change in the middle of recording so I have to apply some magic in FCP.. It’s going to be very educating.\
\
11.45 – Drank to much coffee.. aargh.. a little shaky now. Bagger. Just had a really good artist here, maybe one of the most successful ones and he was great fun. Saved my day.. :)\
\
14:50 – 17 artists done. Hmm.. light is better due to a fault.. maybe I will have a problem later on.. Drinking a beer now to make the speedy coffee effect to calm a little.\
\
15:41 – 19. wanted his motorbike in the studio.. :) (a 250cc harley wannabe) I had to find a ramp and all. He was very happy when he could sit on it in the studio. hehe.. Another girl took a big white flower, another wanted a big mirror. Gave her that. one fellow, or no, two stripped bare.. I only filmed from waist and up. :) I think I have material for a fun movie. Just hope nothing strange will happen with time code and stuff.\
\
18:19 – 23 people done including me. (I think) 6 more artists will come tonight. It will be a lot later than I first thought. I had to change aperture from F2.8 to F2.2 because a paper I had put in front of the light moved during my takes without me noticing. Remember my setups are ALWAYS VERY cheap and alive. :D I just hope this will not make a big difference in picture quality. Going from light to dark in a couple of frames.\
\
21:07 – 29 people done! Wow.. .We called 30 and 29 turned up. Some still unreachable because of travel but I’m amazed by this number anyhow. The most famous guys where all here! ha! And I don’t mean guys known to some local chinese, I mean guys who are famous everywhere where we talk art from China. \
\
23:53 HOME! 33 persons all together. Linn wanted to make a funny movie directly (she helped me to fill in time, names and a simple drawing + that she translated everything I said) So we did. We laughed our guts out, she ate a paper and we played it backwards + some stupid moves with me also played backwards.. Will remake it now at home because I added a to harsh level in FCP. So Tomorrow it should be uploaded and ready! I hope. :D\

Good night!\
