The encounter referred to in the title -- between a largemouth bass and myself -- occurred on April 14, 2012 at Lake Rawlings Scuba Park. All of the footage shown was shot on the weekend of April 14-15 and April 21-22. The story on which the movie script was based was written for a creative nonfiction class at Virginia Commonwealth University in the spring of 2012. The movie is offered in partial fulfillment of requirements for the Ph.D. program in Media, Art, & Text at VCU.
This is a recut version of a video posted on March 21, 2013. This version was edited in Premiere Pro rather than Lightworks, and resulted in higher video quality since Premiere did not require transcoding before importing source video and after exporting the final product. Also, one voiceover was re-recorded to correct an error in the original reading (not writing) of the script.
