What’s going on here?

I observed this group last winter (December, 2013) staging and filming a paint fight in the snow at Vilas Park.  It was a cold December day but the actors and camera man and his assistant seemed to enjoy themselves.

The Wind-up.

The scene doesn’t have anything to do with restoration ecology but is typical of the antics that one can see anytime in our interesting and active Lake Wingra Watershed.  Plus, it’s a nice diversion today, which is a cold February morning in Madison.   Lake Wingra is in the background.

The Swing.

The Pitch.

Victor and vanquished.

Victor and vanquished.

The film crew–perhaps a student group from UW-Madison–got the action it wanted, laughed about what they had done, bundled up against the cold, and headed off into town.
