I captured all interview tapes and DSLR b-roll footage. Most importantly I set up a Final Cut Pro 7 file with all the footage organised by location and interview with bins labelled and descriptions of the footage filled in.

When that’s done I exported the information as excel sheets and make an easy to read, colour coded, log. Because there are no shooting logs I feel having this referenceable and descriptive capture log will help the director and picture editor see what is available when they begin to build their story.

I also edited a spec piece with the footage where the goal was to take the viewer through a sequential journey so they could experience the footage as if they are travelling through Bhutan themselves.


“I just looked at some of your logs. Great work! I’m impressed.”
