Whirlwind Weekend! Part 1.

So. Colton came to visit (and teach some film workshops) from wednesday to monday morning! My goodness, how excited I was. We had the best weekend. I have a ton of pictures, but I'm going to try and post them a little bit at a time so I won't have super long posts.

At the workshop, I worked under Glen, who I've worked with a few times on other sets. He's the most excellent gaffer/electrician. One of the hardest workers I've ever met! And he's lightning fast. He taught me how to put up an HMI, and change lenses and scrims. I also learned a little more about how to work C-stands (they have a million knobs!) and learned the color bands of different levels of diffusion. Maybe I'll be a lighting guy when I grow up :)

(just kidding, I think.)

Later that afternoon, Colton and I (and Bryce, too. Of the Grecian Urns, check them out on itunes!) (ps, sorry I always advertise, but they really are phenomenal, and are trying to finish paying for college.) went to a lawnmower race! I pass the track everytime I drive from my house to the school, but I've never actually seen a race. We stayed for quite a few hours, and met the coolest people. I had TONS of fun. Here's a sneak peek at some photos to come!

The super mod twin division tearing up the track!

  1. So fun!! I'm glad you got to see Colton for several days :)

  2. Kelly, I just love your pictures!
    And I think I'm finding're smart.
    You always talk about such confusing things, like photography or lighting or Bible girls are awesome!
    I'm just gonna look at your pictures now :)
