For this project I got a fairly cheap mini jack microphone with a wind reducing covering. It didn't work- but I didn't know that until after we were done shooting. The next day was even colder and windier than the original shooting day, so I asked Sarah and Ian to try to match their voices on screen with a voiceover. It went well, though you can see in a couple places, especially if you are watching closely, where it isn't exact. It is, however, WAY better than the original audio which was more often than not largely the sound of wind with some voices in the background.
Approximately 110,000 people of Japanese ancestry were forced into war relocation camps from 1942-1945 (World War II). Manzanar, located between Independence and Lone Pine on 395, is one of the best preserved internment camps.
This video was shot entirely on the grounds and within the U.S Park Service interpretive center- with one exception, the spotlight, which I felt was necessary and would have happened at the time.
What I hoped to convey was that those imprisoned were able to find beauty and peace within confinement and lightness within the darkness.
