Arduino Documentary

Looks like I’ll be using the Arduino in a few project so I ordered a couple more.

For those of you that don’t know what it is, here’s a documentary on it.

The key thing is that you have to have a terrible hair cut. I tried this but it kept getting in my eyes.

The Inventor

Documentary by Abby Vara and friends. This was a lot of fun to shoot. Met lots of new friends. We’ll be doing a Squirrel building party this summer for sure!

A few final steps for the documentary

I dropped into the editing lab just as the final steps of the video editing were taking place.

Went for a brew after. I tried “Barking Squirrel”. Seems okay. Abby couldn’t stay as she had some other plans but I hung out with some of her friends.

Documentary Shoot


This week has been more busy than usual since a documentary on myself as an inventor was filmed. There was preparation and of course the time with the cameras.

This was directed by Abby Vara and her friends (details coming forward).

Abby and the crew were amazingly professional.

I didn’t realized how much work this sort of stuff was.

There is a very high labor content in film. Well it’s much more than one would expect. They carry a huge amount of equipment around and get it set up and working quickly. In our case there were many take-downs and setup of the equipment.

Then there’s the work of facilitating the content. Abby always had a plan and kept things moving. It was all very efficient use of time.

Of course there is also a lot of time to be spent editing the video. I don’t know much about that but I bet it can take a lot of hours.

I’m looking forward to seeing what comes forward here.
