There was a lot of pressure for Saturday to be awesome, because it was technically our last Saturday together this summer… But to be honest, it turned out to be anything but awesome. I feel awful admitting this to the world wide web.. But after 8 years of working the videography business, I lost my first camera card. I’m convinced that Lucy either ate it, or there is a mean ghost in my house playing tricks on me! I’m trying to laugh about it now, but I’m still feeling pretty upset. The card had footage from a collaboration I filmed with Aspyn Ovard on it. It was a collaboration I was so excited about, especially because I’m just getting my feet wet on Youtube.
On Thursday when we were filming, we kept switching our cards in and out of the camera so that neither of us had to email the other person footage. I was in a fluster because our time was slim (Brad had to leave for the airport right after the shoot) so I slipped our card in my back pocket. We got back after filming and I had broken that little lock button into the lock position — AHHG! Why was I not using a case!? Suchhhhh a rookie mistake. So Brad was quickly trying to fix the card in our kitchen before he left.. And then we have NO IDEA what happened to it after that. I thought Brad had it with him on his trip, and he thought he had left it on the kitchen counter with me.. So when he returned on Saturday… That’s when we realized neither of us had it. We literally searched EVERY nook and cranny, and flipped our whole house upside down. It was nowhere to be found. So Brad is so cute and took the blame.. He reached out to Aspyn (most embarrassing thing EVER) and she was so sweet to reshoot on Saturday with us. So I quickly put away my cry-face, and it ended up not being as big of a big deal as I thought it would be. AND we also realized that the bulk of my footage was accidentally filmed on her card (Small tender mercies!). We finished reshooting and decided to go up to Craft Lake City to make up for our “Awesome Saturday” hahah — Besides “that-time-of-the-month” hitting me while we were out and about (of all days, right!?) We really enjoyed the rest of our day walking around and appreciating some local artisans. It felt good to forget about the stress from earlier, and pig out on some french macarons. 😉 Now that I have learned my lesson with that stupid card, I am glued to my new camera bag – Hahah! I’m sure we will find that lost phantom card in some stupid place… Like Lucy’s diaper 😉 😉 😉
