Shadows in the woods

Today we got to spend some time shooting in the woods. As we were getting down to the last few shots, I had a sudden rush of flashbacks to a series of horror videos I shot as a kid with an old friend of mine Robert Dakin. He was known around school for being a video wiz and had made a series of scary slasher shorts called "Murders on Swan Lake." I met him in middle school and came with my own experience in home video "filmmaking." I remember our families even had the exact same video camera. We hit it off right away and began working on a trilogy of short films called "Shadows in the Woods." As I knelt down in the woods today and recorded Ian, Michael, Doug, and Dominic exploring the forest, I was a kid again. Wasn't expecting that today. Nice surprise.
