Day Five (the last!) of Shooting
Apologies for the late update, as we had run into several snags over the past day or so and haven't been able to get online!
Gradating the color was very fun to shoot, as the bright purple and white swirling together made for a cheery image. The day was exceptionally sunny, and it just felt like summer all around. Two of the gradations were pressed and rolled, and a sample of each gradation was made into a very fragile "mock-up stick" for the purposes of the shoot. They can be used, but far more prone to shattering than a normal pastel would be.
While Zach stayed glued to the process and shot all the main footage, Leah took the second camera and ran around shooting all of the non-process shots we had yet to film. It took a bit of running around, but, in the end, we got everything we could have hoped for, and made our train back into Paris!
Before we left, Margaret and Isabelle made a gift of the mock sticks to us. Below you can see a picture of this (presently unnamed) beautiful new shade of violet, which will be available in the months to come from Roché pastels!
We finally finished filming on Friday, and Isabelle and Margaret managed to (despite the impracticalities) complete a full range of color for us. Normally, this process could take months to complete but they worked unremittingly every day, determined to show us as much as they could. Thanks to their enormous efforts and shared passion to the film, we managed to capture not only the entire invention and production of a new color, but their truly enlightened and charming insight to a largely unexplored dimension of the art world.
Now we intend to make the best film we can to repay them for letting us have such unlimited access to their private world. We will continue to include our Kickstarter friends with our progress as we edit, and we look forward to sharing the eventual finished product! Thank you thank you thank you for all of your support.
