Ridge Church: Here. Now. / by matt wolfe [cc]

Went out to Wetumpka, Alabama, two weeks ago and shot the interview portion of this video with Trip Healey. It's a video to setup the official launch date for Ridge Church's first official worship service in September.

Originally Trip wanted the b-roll shots to be of just around Wetumpka, but the more I drove around, the more I just thought that it wouldn't work very well. After some panicking and anxiety and then and stopping trying to "force" it to work, I redid some of the b-roll shots with just magnetic letters I got from the local mass retail warehouse, and just tried to let it be a more, simplistic revelation/ revealing style. I think, in the end, it turned out well. 

This was also my first shoot with my own summer intern - high schooler student John Clarke. On the first day of shooting, JC spent most of his time wrangling a wandering dog that was super excited that we were around. To be honest, if JC hadn't been there, I don't know how I would have ever been able to get the interview done. 

Cheers for the help, JC.
