Ladybirds

And we plan to film insects again. We will start on a simple level with ladybirds. This is for a VARA pilot. As soon as there is more to tell, I will tell it.

Filmed ladybirds yesterday with a macro lens. Wonderful creatures. They take direction nicely. If you place one on a blade of grass, they walk to the tip. So you could make a nice traveling shot (at least, Chris could), with a black-speckled leading role that moves on command. Well…sort of. It took 10 takes to get the ladybug to the tip without taking a detour. And I even got a fly to wash its hands on cue. Worms are also good, but they are a bit slow. The lead players of the other episodes will be more difficult, I imagine.
