Summary: This past weekend I traveled to North Carolina with the Springwood crew in order to shoot the video footage for artist Liz Herald's single Broke A Nail. On this shoot, captured in four different locations, I worked on lighting, setting up locations of the artist for shots, helped with ideas on possible macroshots and helped run the Springwood Instagram page while helping with b-roll/behind the scenes footage. The most interesting part of the weekend was digging a hole to fit a prop coffin in that was about 3 feet deep. I'm sure that there is a picture or two somewhere on the Springwood Production Facebook page!
