Fourth of July is always a fun time at my sister’s house. This year was no different. It’s always a great start to summer in my middle-American little suburb town, Berlin Borough. My whole family goes to my sisters after the parade and that means lots of kids doing the hilarious things kids do. It’s also a great time for me to test out the gear I use at work. (We have been having audio problems with the DSLR shoots, so I tested a good ol’ wired mic!). My test subjects were the cast of characters you see below. I think they all nailed it!
As an aside, I think in addition to being silly and fun, this is a great activity and teaches kids skills they will actually use their entire life. Being able to talk when cameras roll and eyeballs are watching you is a confidence builder. The older kids really did a great job on these vids. There’s a few future Peter Cheeseman’s in there for sure.
Here are a few stills as well. See you next year.
