The Roaring Camp Holiday Lights Train was such a whirlwind of a shoot but such a great night at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the train. Production kicked off at the Boardwalk with our cast getting a special ride aboard the merry-go-round with Santa Claus. After that it was time to board the train to capture some late evening into dusk shots with all those aboard the train. We made our way down Beach Street and over to the depot where we “picked” up Santa. The Santa that we were working with was so awesome with the camera and the kids. He had a great energy and really knew how to play up the crowd and play to the camera in such a fun way. It got dark really quick and it was time to capture some nighttime shots. I personally had a lot of fun shooting with the GoPro as Tam shouldered the bigger HD Camera. In the end we had two great spots packaged for Roaring Camp, Holiday Lights Train and Thomas Holiday Train.
