Mifan Mama / Shining Star Charity Video 米饭妈妈公益拍摄

Last year, we filmed a charity short for an orphanage that specifically cared for children who are blind or have visual disabilities. A group of nine children came in to talk a bit about themselves. All of the children that came in front of the camera were visually impaired, all under the age of ten, and all adorable. The idea was to have them come in, sit down in front of the camera, state their name, age and aspirations for the future. We aimed to interview each child, within five to ten minute increments, so they didn't become uncomfortable. We preset our equipment; lights, microphones and cameras so there would be no waiting period for the children to get nervous. We did however neglect to think of one thing, the height of the chair. The first child was placed on the chair and became frightened because his feet could not touch the ground.  We took away the chair and reposition the lights, microphones and cameras. After that minor bump, the interview process ran more or less smoothly. A few children who were too shy to talk preferred to sing us a song, some who were too afraid to be interviewed by themselves stood next to their buddy during the process.

去年,我们和上海米饭妈妈合作,拍摄了一部公益短片。此片的主角们,是一群从小就患有盲症的小朋友们。我们邀请他们来到studio与我们进行了访问。所有的孩子均是十岁以下,我们拍摄这部短片的概念是邀请他们进来坐在相机前面,介绍他们的名字,年龄以及未来的期许。我们的目标是采访每一个孩子大概五到十分钟的时间。他们不会因为时间太长感到不适应。我们在开始之前已经事先把灯光,麦克风,摄相机都给架设好。所以他们不会有等待的时间,他们也不会紧张。当我们采访第一个孩子的时候,我们让他坐在一张比较高的倚子上面。因为倚子有点高,小朋友脚碰不到地板,他开始有点点紧张。我们马上把倚子换掉,和调整所以的器材。经过这个小插曲之后,之后的采访都蛮顺利的。有几个小朋友太害羞,不太敢讲话,所以他们就用唱歌的方式来表现自己。也有些不敢自己一个人,一定要跟著他们的好朋友在一起才可以安心。
