Lillian Vaughan is not your average 95 year old girl, not that anyone who lives to 95 is average! She is funny and quick, she lives independently and takes care of her own cooking and housework. Filming with Lillian was great, she is not camera shy and has an honesty in the way she speaks about life that is very endearing.
Lillian’s family approached FlyPress about doing a short biography video to capture some of her family history as well as some treasured moments and memories. As Lillian tells her stories you can’t help to know that this was a life well lived.
The interview was shot in one quick session as Lillian served up her memories effortlessly. The b-roll shots of Lillian in the kitchen was her hospitality in action – between stories she served tea and homemade chocolate chip cookies. I took full advantage of the both the snacks and the chance to get her tinkering about in her kitchen.
The window by her favourite chair, and a single bounce card provided a perfectly lit interview with natural light. Her apartment is full of keepsakes, photos and souvenirs that gave opportunity for gathering meaningful cutaway shots.
As usual, I found the perfect music selection for this project from my good friends at at themusicbed.com.
The pleasure and honour was ours! We wish Lillian the best of luck with her many future plans of travel, crafting and many adventures.
