The Sunday Film Series: Catching A RidePosted: July 22, 2012
About ten years ago, I was helping put on a juggling festival. We were giving a set of water injected tennis balls to everyone who attended. Filling a tennis ball with water gives it the perfect weight for juggling. The water also keeps the ball from bouncing away when it is dropped.
This really has nothing to do with what this week’s film is about.
Tennis balls don’t inject themselves with water. About ten years ago, I was sitting on the front porch with a box of tennis balls and a dangerous looking syringe device that we were using to fill the balls. My neighbor pulled in to her driveway and saw me jabbing tennis balls with what looked like a big spike. She looked at me like I’d snapped, walked to her front porch, and called her kids in from playing in the front yard.
That doesn’t have anything to do with the topic of the film either.
Jabbing did not occur during the making of this film. There were some neighbors giving me strange looks as I made it.
Take two pictures, move the car, take two pictures, move the car. Open the door, take pictures….you get the drill.
It’s going to be a while before the neighbors stop looking at me funny over making this one.
