Swim Zack Swim on location

My homemade jib arm with the Sony Betacam SP camera mounted on it. This was used for the crane camera shot of Zack arriving at the Trophy Shop to try and get a job so he can make the money he needs to take swimming lessons.

This scene I wrote back in 2001 inspired the Jump Start Hockey commercial were a kid goes into a dinner looking for work so he can play hockey. Rick Mercer made a spoof of the commercial for his show The Rick Mercer Report. Rick worked with Evan Phillips six years after we made the original scene and then Henry Quinn and I got to work with Rick Mercer last summer making it a complete circler.
Funny how that works out.
