As with all of our films, the inspiration for this portrait came right from Jen and Dave. They made it really easy for us and unknowingly provided the format of their video in their answer to our first exercise: How do you Sunday? They told us that Sundays were their day to take it slow and catch up on life. Dave spends most of the morning doing dishes and lounging in front of the TV, while Jen researches recipes for the week.
