interviews: with people is a man-on-the-street TV show/segment I write, produce, edit and host that airs daily all over New Jersey on Cablevision Local Programming’s LO channel. Each episode is shot at three locations (excepting specials.) This episode’s question is: What’s in your pocket?

The intro segment here includes a bit of pink lightning I made in After Effects. Since it was a relatively simple and short shot I keyframe’d it to my hand movement rather than track the shot. While attempting to fake the Heimlich maneuver, I accidentally performed it on myself using the back of that lounge chair. I felt queasy for a few minutes afterward. I realized, in hindsight, that people really don’t carry much of interest in their pockets in this day and age.
