Despite this small but near disastrous delay, everyone rallied to the creative cause, skateboarding, drumming, strumming, filming and even inventing the Pixel luge for Dion’s green screen until James arrived.
A session of keepie uppie with a green football (can’t wait to see the footage), perfectly sums-up the day. We didn’t stop. Well, except for lunch. But, as well as some amazing new footage for the music video, we now have the 1st draft of the poster for the ‘Keep it Rhyl’ skate event (scheduled for 21st March), thanks to Gareth’s Illustrator expertise & Fran’s hard work on image selection & badge branding.
One of the highlights for me was showing Kieron how to upload his slideshow of Pixel’s Manchester skateboarding trip directly to the Circuit website. The slideshow was completed in December but it’s the first time I’ve had the chance to show him how to access the site and the fact that it happened at all during the session is a small but significant triumph in this keepie uppie kind of a day!
We’ve got DJ Hollie Proffit coming to work on the event playlist with the group next Monday afternoon and a few more green screen shots in the morning. Oh, and some music to record in “the other room”. I don’t know where that is but Dion does. Which is just as well.
