In last night's class, the bridge team had an inspiring interview with Clifton Chow of the Tango Society of Boston. He spoke about how the full moon tango got started, the romance of dancing in the moonlight, and what the bridge means to him now. He also told us about his experience dancing on the bridge on July 4th one year, and volunteered to give us some footage he has from that night to use in the video. Sweet!

Bridge Video Outline:
Brief narration on history of the bridge
Transition with Clifton's description of the movie that inspired tango on the bridge
Bridge is property of State park
Stories of first dates/romance at tango on the bridge (with B-roll of dancers/bridge, boats passing?)
Story of July 4th on bridge (with footage from Clifton)
End with his descriptions of what the bridge means to him now and/or how dancing on the bridge lets the "moonlight lead the way"

Bridge team homework:
Gen and Jackie: reserch history of bridge, call historical society
Sarah, Gen, Jackie: work on ideas for narration at beginning
Sarah: get video of fireworks from Clifton
Juan: find video or stills of the movie "Tango, l'exil de Gardel"
Jackie: type up the log of the footage
