Taipei Shorts has been putting on an annual season of shows for the past couple of years, and last year Alicia Haddad and John Brownlie invited some photowalkers to help shoot the rehearsals to help with shooting the event.
Of course, this was acutely awkward for actors who prefer live rather than recorded action. Part of the zeitgeist of acting. So I tried to be as invisible as possible, at least as far as a 100kg person with a large camera/lens strapped around the neck can be.
Well, the lighting turned out to be far harder to deal with than any of the actors by a huge margin! The actors were fabulous. The lights strong, direct and unforgiving of my errors in focus/shutter speed… whatever.
I did manage to get a few shots that weren’t too bad. And one of those shots ended up, despite the poor lighting gracing the end of this video. You can also find it on this page.
So either way you gotta scroll or watch to the end of the video! Should I include a screenshot? Why make it easy for you! Anyway, you’ll enjoy the Taipei Short: Flight 109.
AT Beaune, the gentleman’s hands in the video, was directing the video’ and he ultimately produced the video which you can view right here.
Thanks for making this possible!
