Behind the scenes

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to create Bicimakina. I spend most of my time in front of a computer, or writing things on whiteboards. Good thing I really enjoy both. 

My absolute favorite, however, is filming. I LOVE TALKING TO PEOPLE. Especially weird people. Especially about their irrational love of human-powered machines. Yesterday was a 2-in-1. I got to shoot pieces of episodes with both Alex Seidel, about his mobile bike-sauna, and David Wilson about his passion for typewriters. Super different, equally awesome. 

Here's a little bit from behind the scenes. Enjoy :)

 Can't wait to see this thing get built out!

Oh, and I almost forgot. David HATES bananas. So, when I showed up on set with a bag full of bananas he was very unhappy. He was even unhappier when he discovered a banana peel in his sink.

P.S. all of the images shown here were taken by the incredibly talented Krishna Pickersgill of Glitch Films. I can't tell you how lucky I am to be able to work with him and his equally talented wife Aly! Go watch some of their awesome videos, or even better, book them for your wedding!
