A premiere: my first official Be Gingered movie: Broadcoffee.
In the past month I have been filming all the cups of coffee I drank. I did this for 23 days, in 3 different cities (Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen) and with a lot of different people (thanks everyone for waiting anxiously before attacking your damping coffee!). A shocking number of 75 cups of coffee, 'cause what would I do without caffeine..
Already after a couple of days of collecting cups, I was able to put them into Imovie to see a glimpse of the result. Quite an exciting moment, because it looked like it was actually going to work, so I kept on filming and editing along the way.
In the meantime I was composing and recording the song underneath it, which I called Slow Down. The most difficult part was that I started this idea with filming coffee, but I'm not a big fan of lyrics about coffee moments, so I had to come up with something more cryptical in order to make sense in different levels. It appeared to be more work than I thought, also because I just started recording without having even finished the song.
But because of the deadline, I found a lot of inspiration in the last few days and made it to the finish line.
Last bot not least, the title. Well, nothing clever, just a combination of Broadcast and Coffee.
