I was director and cameraman for this mid-winter outdoor shoot in northern Illinois.
It was cold as you can see from the ice but the batteries of my Sony HDR-HC3 held up through four hours of outdoor shooting. This was shot in HDV on that camera.
My son Dylan handles the on camera talent chores. He has written and acted in an Alice Cooper Halloween special for WGN America in 2009 as Herbert the Serial Killer.
