More Chloe....

So.. last Thursday was a Chloe and daddy day. They happen every now and then when our day care baby sitter has to take a day off for various reasons. When she woke up I asked her what she wanted to do this morning. She said, "Make a Chloe movie!" OK.. So I asked her what she wanted the movie to be about.. "Hmmmm... Cookies!" We had just gotten cookies the night before. The first time we've had actual cookies in the house in a while.. I should have expected the answer. OK.. Cookies.... We can do that...We spent the next 30 - 45 min shooting as fast as we could. It's a strange challenge to come with something to shoot on the fly and keep your 2 year old daughter entertained. Especially when there's a bunch of cookies in front of her for most of the time :).. We then relaxed and ate a cookie. I found and hour or two to edit it all together while her and mommy had a little sleep in saturday morning. Then mommy found some piano music that seemed to fit and that was that.. She really likes shooting these little home movies. And It's a blast doing things together with her like this. I have a feeling this won't be the last.

Hehe. thanks guys.. These make for very fun Daddy and daughter time. And I see them continuing until she stopd enjoying it... haha.. sebastien.. the key is to shoot fast.. and try not to do more than 1 take of the same angle.. or she'll start to get bored.. But she seems to be ok if I just keep moving fast and not asking her to do the same things over and over. :) You end up having to try and "fix" alot in editing.. but at least she enjoys herself while she's doing it. That's the important part ;).
