Apparently God does not want Club God released yet. That’s all I can think of… because I still need one last shot of an audience in order to finish the short.
I’d shoot at my own church, but being Catholic and all, the church pews look like, well, church pews, not an auditorium audience. I’ve tried a couple of times to get a Protestant co-worker to shoot video for me at her church which is more auditorium-like, but that has not panned out.
My brother in Houston tried shooting some footage that was nice, but not at the right angle.
So, tonight, I’m trying again. I’m going to a school graduation and will attempt to setup my camera in the back row of the theater and hopefully get enough backs of heads of the audience to fit the shot. I’ve taped off the angle I need on my flip out viewfinder in the hopes that I can match it seamlessly with the original footage.
If this doesn’t work, I’ll be at a loss.
I know the Lord will have this short completed when he wants it completed and not a second sooner. But, to say the process hasn’t been frustrating would be lying.
But I trust and I go with the flow.
As Mike Sweeney, a Catholic baseball player (Royals, now A’s) once said, he put a sticker on his bible which has a tandem two-person bike, with one person peddling hard in the back and the front seat empty. To him it symbolizes his faith. His job is to pedal as hard as he can and he’ll let Jesus steer him in the right direction.
So, I’m pedaling Lord. Just steer me near an audience shot and we can finally wrap up this short… please.
