My brother-in-law has a job that has to sound fun to anyone – he’s a stuntman. In November, he came to Minneapolis to assist his good friend Eric Howell with the making of a film called Ana’s Playground. It’s a short movie being filmed to raise awareness about child soldiers around the world.
Todd invited me to the set over lunch to see how a still photographer works on set – and to see the movie being filmed. It was a bitter cold grey day that chilled me to the bone during the two hours I was on set. During this time, I was able to see a scene being filmed where she’s dodging a sniper’s bullets in the courtyard. This shot was taken as she was throwing a rock to divert the attention of the sniper.
