Filming this documentary is going to be a tough one for me, since I will be filming and editing this project at the same time as my Senior Project video. That means I’m filming both a short film and the Café Rio documentary back to back. That being said I’m chomping at the bit to get this started.
Right after a successful shoot with my Senior Project Crew, I stopped by both the Northpoint apartments (although, I think I’ll have to meet up with them earlier and on a weekday), and I met with the manager of the Northpoint Café Rio. We swapped information with each other, and she said that she’ll check with corporate to see if it’ll be okay to include Café Rio in a documentary. Later on, I hope to get in contact with one of the employees who works there on Tuesdays to use as the subject of documentary. I think that following around an employee, observing them in their normal day (not only in the restaurant) would help the audience latch onto the story of the video pretty well. I’ll continue the hunt.
