Summer Media Institute - Day 3 (field trip)

Summer Media Institute - Day 3 (field trip)

Today was day three of this year's Summer Media Institute. The advanced group took a field trip, leaving the beginners to work on their personal narratives. I followed the group of six participants and two instructors to Calumet camera store in East Cambridge with my Flip camera, but the batteries died after I filmed the ride there (attached in time lapse form). At the store we were able to look at some new cameras and equipment, talk about new trends in film making, ask questions about prices and how to choose a good camera, as well as learn about renting equipment for projects we might want to do on our own. Tomorrow, the advanced group will take another tour to a different camera store, and hopefully I will have enough batteries to take some more video or pictures of what we do.
