Thread: Shooting a short documentarly about life in the campgrounds.

  1. #1

    Default Shooting a short documentarly about life in the campgrounds.

    Hello, senior film student here; in my last quarter at college I am taking a documentary class where we are to produce one short documentary over the course of a quarter.
    We are encouraged to film as subject that is personal to us, one that we are emotionally invested in.
    As a 7 time coachella veteran, I figured that the campgrounds would be a unique place to set my documentary.

    I want to shoot most of my project as a observational documentary, just showing unplanned events as they happen.
    however, I do want to include some interviews with people in the camp grounds.

    I will be attending weekend 1 and want to hear YOUR unique coachella stories. which could include things like:
    Traveling a long distance to go to coachella.
    Quitting a job so that you could attend.
    Overcoming any extraordinary circumstances which led up to your arrival.
    Meeting a significant other at coachella.

    Do you have an epic campsite setup? I want to see it

    Do you have any great stories about the fest this year? I want to hear it.

    I also want to hear things about why you love coachella/ and the campgrounds. and what makes it such a special and magical place.


    Anyway, If you are interested in sharing your stories or want to be interviewed, let me know via PM and we can talk more and coordinate about meeting at the festival


    Thanks, Dylan

    You're free to follow me around filming all weekend. That way people can think I'm important.

    I swear I'm not an idiot!

    Why a short documentarly-whatever-call-it? Make it a long one.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.

    Film students are the fucking worst, especially film students who cant spell documentary. Go back to school and get a degree in something you are actually going to be successful in.

    Thanks, I plan on trying to get mostly my own footage. But it may be very helpful to get some extra footy from Weekend 2. So shoot it and i want to see it....awesome

    That's what I intend to do for the majority of the piece. I just figured that it would be good to pick up a few interviews/ sound bites to help explain the coachella phenomenon

    That's the plan. I hope the parachute crew will be back this year - that shit was magical.

    I've never been a good speller, but I think I'm decent at making movies.
    Am I going to be the next Spielberg? no. But its something I enjoy doing, so I DGAF

    Keep your interviews random with people who are interested, I've shot plenty of great things by being a fly on the wall. You'll find those moments that add to your experiences. I may bring in my xha1 in the day if I can pull it off. It is very fun to have a proper camera at these events. I got great footage at EDC last year

    If anything, you'll make yourself a good event reel; you need the all access pass to get the real good footage that will let those who have never been understand.

    my initial intentions were to shoot it all as an observational - fly on the wall documentary (I'm a fan, the near objectivity in portraying an unbiased reality has always sucked me in). however, after pitching the idea to the class they thought it would benefit from getting some interviews to help explain what the campground experience is all about.

    yeah, I don't have any press credentials, just hoping to sneak my dslr in with the "removable lens? . .ugh... I don't think so" excuse.

    i think i'm going to bring an ex1 as well for the campground

    The best part of this is that whoever is shooting this is going to inevitably get so much footage of himself fucked up. Your probably going to overlook something in the editing room and get yourself incriminated .

    but ya Ill be glad to show you the ins and outs of Coachella and get you an interview with anyone if you let me hold the camera for a lil...... bitches love video cameras

    not too worried about incriminating myself. but PM me your info so we can meetup. It would be great to see some of the ins and outs of coachella, as well as get a veteran's perspective on why they love coachella.
