Ship Captain 2 Video Shoot Aboard Chicago's Tall Ship Windy

Last Tuesday, while in town for the 24th Chicago Underground Film Festival, I shot my good friend Ashley Thomas aboard the Tall Ship Windy on Lake Michigan for the upcoming sequel to my 2010 video, I Wanna Be A Ship Captain.  This video shoot was a long time coming, and I'm so glad the stars aligned and we were finally able to make it happen.  Ashley (an artist based in Corpus Christi, TX) was in town with her husband, musician Jesse Jerome Jenkins, who crewed on the shoot, along with our good friend, filmmaker Casey Puccini.  We used a variety of cameras in order to capture both a retro and contemporary look.  I shot with a Hi8 camcorder provided by Casey (which looks very similar to VHS).  Casey used his digital point and shoot, while Jesse took videos and pictures using my iPhone SE, and a clip-on fisheye lens.  The weather was perfect and we had an absolute blast!  Check out some of the behind the scenes pics below.
