During the last (July 2012) season, we were visited by a large crew of the Jerusalemthemovie project, who came to Tell es-Safi/Gath to film an archaeological excavation in action. Prof. Jodi Magness, who is the film’s “host”, was on site as well, and she spoke with me and others on camera. If all goes well, some of the footage from this day will eventually appear on the IMAX movie that they are producing about Jerusalem.
It was quite nice seeing how a large, Holywood-style movie is made (and all the people, equipment and vehicles that come with it) – and in particular, I liked the guy who went around making fresh iced coffee in a blender, and gave it out to team members!
Now, the project has been kind enough to send me a clip of an interview that they conducted with me that was taken that day.
Check it out – while the interview starts a little slow (tired me, at the end of a long, hot day…), I eventually do get into it and get more animated as the interview goes on…
