This story is told using only the available natural sound I gathered while shooting video. One wireless microphone was used inside the a soapbox car to record the sounds not only of the car but of the driver as well. Essentially, the storyteller (me) got out of the way and allowed those in attendance that day to lead us through the experience of Soap Box derby racing.

Introducing 60 Seconds. Each week I highlight a person, place or thing in and around Fort Collins Colorado. My time frame is as follows: One hour to video the subject, and two total hours to import and edit the footage.
This week, we spend 60 Seconds with Bruce K. Freestone, founder and producer of Fort Collins based Open Stage Theatre & Company. Bruce is playing the part of Sherlock Holmes in Steven Dietz's adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle & William Gillette's script, "Sherlock Holmes, The Final Adventure".
While 60 Seconds is typically shot in one hour and edited in two, this week's 60 seconds was shot in about three hours. Woops! I fully intend from here on out to spend one hour, and one hour only shooting this segment. I must admit, this week I got wrapped up in the iconography and romanticism surrounding Sherlock Holmes. I arrived to the theatre with many preconceived ideas of what I wanted as video and I didn't leave until that part of me was satisfied. Thanks to my wife Kristi for reminding me of my original intention...simplicity. Go into this without knowing anything and be surprised.
