Make it work

So… after mulling over a script for a video that we are working on AND looking at the weather forecast, I made up my mind that I wanted to shoot a section of this project in the rain. The video is a cool spin on a spoken word piece that we are putting together to use as a “big opener” for Easter so adding a little raw emotion in the rain seemed to make sense… until I realized that I don’t have suitable protection for the camera. Not to be deterred, I grabbed a handful of Ziplock bags and some gaf-tape and I made it work!

After shooting out in the rain for about an hour and a half, the camera did really well! Sure, the lens and hood got pretty wet, but the main body stayed dry!

I’m quite aware that good companies make custom covers with all kinds of Velcro and rain-proof material, but in a pinch, you have to figure out how to make it work!
