met the jury

We've spent the last two days meeting the jury, explaining the project, chatting about the themes, fielding questions and playing 'whoosh.'

There have been great debates about the right to vote, the right to drive and the right to bear arms. It's always great to have 4'10" producer Eva Verity to prove to the kids that they're not too short to drive.

It's been going well, but it's tough to work with a jury that only speaks French or Dutch. Lots of translating and missed jokes going both ways. The universal symbol of the fist bump works for the most part. Video soon to follow as soon as I'm done my papers.
