The Cooked In Africa film crew is back in town putting the final touches on the show. They are staying in our house, drinking all our coffee, and generally being a nuisance. Except that they are really not a nuisance at all. They play with our kids and make us laugh. It’s like having built in camera-toting-sound-recording-babysitter-friends. Unfortunately, they can’t babysit all the time and sometimes have to turn the cameras on us. That’s the part I don’t like. As PAYBACK for all that camera time, I am going to try and capture what they are up to for you.
This weekend they shot footage on our patio of Ben making coffees. We were all so caffeinated by the end that we were practically flying. By the way, you are looking at Sunel the Cinematographer (she’s amazing and we have lots of great pow wows about camera stuff). Wesley the… actually I have no idea what his technical title is. He’s always busy… babysitting the kids, talking me into being filmed, standing in as sound guy. I would call him the guy who does everything Sunel doesn’t do… but I think he’s actually the Producer. There is another member MIA, but we’ll introduce you to him later.
You’re also seeing the first “blog glimpse” of our new family friend. Our new dog Heza, giving Neo a big ol’ lick.
I’ll try to sneak up on the crew again real soon!
