I’ve had my precious Prius Pearl since 2007 and all these years I’ve been obsessed with the back up camera. So much so that after wrapping my short film “Pearl” DP Jen May and I decided to drive down the Hollywood Hills in reverse and attempt to shoot the back up camera screen with her 5D. We covered the 5D with black cardboard and here is the result. The footage did not make it into the film (often what I find aesthetically pleasing is apparently NOT. As I am often reminded by my producer husband), but it’s fun to finally look at the footage and share it with anyone out there that has a similar obsession with their back up camera…anybody… I think it’s probably time to get a wide angle lens and start shooting with it instead of fantasizing about driving around in reverse while I shoot the screen in my car.
The official jury prize winner of Los Angeles Magazine’s “Get LA” competition, this video marks the beginning of my filmmaking aspirations. Not sure where my love of film will take me, but to quote the wise Prius Pearl – “No matter what happens, you sure are a lucky gal.” I hope you enjoy watching this short as much as I enjoyed making it.
