My dolly is a zebra

Haven't you always wanted to work in the movies? The glamour, the adrenaline, the use of children's toys in place of complicated technical machinery ...

The light at the end of the tunnel

There's low budget, no budget - and there's using your toddler's ride-on zebra as a camera dolly. Today I'm reshooting what is hopefully the last scene that needs doing. I think it looks pretty good. By now, though, I may be hallucinating. So, I hope to wrap things up this weekend. After the work, the next thing is - to let go!
