Recap from last night’s filming at Substantial
Last night we filmed at UXHH, a happy hour for designers, hosted at Substantial’s beautiful office on Capitol Hill. It was a fun, chaotic, shoot, but it was all part of the plan. The hope was that filming during a happy hour of designers would make it easy to find people willing to draw and design things at the whiteboard and I was right. Give in to a little chaos, you get a different kind of energy on film in return.
The fancy Minority Report looking screen is a Bluescape, and we filmed Donte Parks, a friend and one of the founders of Substantial, demoing it on film.
This was our first interior shoot, and the first footage of people actually making things (as the film is titled, We Make Seattle, such footage shouldn’t be a surprise). We also got some footage of the hardcourt bike polo game being played at Cal Anderson park (a variant of sport invented here in Seattle).
