Travels with Judy - my friend's show
My pal Vicki Cain set out to make a documentary about her journey to retrace the steps of John Steinbeck from his book, Travels with Charley. This was a huge undertaking for someone with experience, but Vicki had never made a doc before---she didn't even know how to use a camera.
I love that shit. I really do. Her rough cut was very rough but there was something in it I can't quite describe. The fab GF felt it, too. I've seen and worked on a lot of shows with larger budgets crewed by more skilled moviemakers, but with all the money in the world, you may not make an emotional connection with your audience.
This little snip is a practice shoot she did to get ready for her cross-country tour. The title thumbnail is of historian Erin Eisenbarth. In addition to being all historically knowledgeable, she knits.
