It has been about three weeks since we got back from Rome, Italy. The trip was a blast.
Now it is time to start editing video. This year we shot 18 hours of video. Not too bad considering we shot 24 hours last year. It was so nice this year to know what was important to tape and what was not so important to get on tape. By the end of the trip Kendra was wanting to stay forever. Unfortunately we had to come back home and start editing. Well we will keep you updated as to when the project will be done.
Well Kendra and I are back and trying to adjust to the jet lag. We had a fabulous trip with B.O.C. Ministry out of Corpus Christi, Texas. While in Italy we were able to see a lot of sites in Rome. We also spend a day in Assisi.
Some of the sites we were able to see were:
Saint Peter’s Basilica
Saint Mary Majors Basilica
Saint John Lateran’s Basilica
Saint Paul’s Outside the Walls
Saint Peter in Chains
The Sistine Chapel
Pope Benedict XVI
The Thanks Giving mass for newly elected Daniel Cardinal Dinardo
Saint Francis’ Basilica in Assisi
And many more….
Wile videotaping the pilgrimage we ran into the pilgrims from the Houston & Galveston area. They were in Italy to support their newly elevated cardinal. The Diocese of Houston hired us to shoot the Thanks Giving Mass for the Cardinal Dinardo. We did a two camera shoot in Saint Mary Major Basilica. In addition to this mass we were able to shoot mass in 4 of the seven major basilicas of Rome. All in all we shot about 20 hours of video while in Italy. Now it is off to the editing video editing maddens.
We had a blast and can’t wait to go back next year.
Well with any luck we will be boarding a 747 to head back to the United States of America. Rome is really a great place to work and visit, but home is always nice. Hopefully next time we come it will be for longer than one week. With all the history here it seem like we just scratch the surface and then it is time to pack up and head back west. When we get back we will post some photos for you to laugh at.
Well it is just a few days till Kendra and I pack up and head over the big pond to visit Rome, Italy. Last year I went solo so I am really excited to take Kendra along this time. We will be filming for BOC Ministry. This is their second trip to Rome for a religious pilgrimage. Our tour director will be Gerardo Hernandez and our spiritual director will be father Bob Dunn with Most Precious Blood Catholic Church. We will try to post as much as we can while we are in Rome. When we get the project edited we will post it so you can see our trip.
