Filming begins on The Family Lake

Principal photography has begun on our feature documentary THE FAMILY LAKE in Portland, Oregon.

Jay and friends on breakfast expedition before JayCon 2012.

Filming this summer will be conducted in June and August and will follow Jay through San Antonio, Austin, Portland, Seattle, and Chicago.

Before Jay’s first session, we sat down with his parents to get their perspectives.

Then we sat down with Jay for his first on-camera interview for the film.

Jay speaks about growing up as an always moving around “embassy child.”

This has been a very productive start to the production and editing has already begun in earnest.  On a project like this, it will be important to stay on top of the hundreds of hours of footage.

But that’s the glory and the mystery of documentary filmmaking!
