You guys are something else---this is going to be a GREAT round!!

I can’t shoot mine until next Thursday, which gives me four days to edit and upload.

…Piece of cake.

(How’s that for sticking with a theme, Craig?) ;)

Clint, is that a Spiderbrace you are using there, and what cam do you have on it. I've been looking at their website but my cams (Canon HF100's) are pretty small. Looks like what you have is working for you.

I hate this, odds are against me getting an entry done this time. I had a setback in the physical therapy I'm going through, we have no idea what caused it. But I'm back to just barely being able to hobble around the house with a cane.

Extreme tight lower back, left hamstring, and left calf muscles. A stretching regimen was making good progress until first of this month. Plus no crew interest, so barring a miracle I'll have to enjoy what all of you have done this round.

Might seem off topic till you read the end

Bruce, I have five identical camera rigs. Each camera is a Panasonic HDC-HS100. For the shoulder support I used Cavision rs1580 from B&H

Cavision | RS1580S-SPE Shoulder Pad with Rod System

Here is a series of pictures from having alot of attachments to just the bare camera and rig. I have used the cheap light attachment as a lav mount as well. You can also notice my system of camera identification by high end Z.I.P. TIES...

Just to stay on topic, I had a scene that involved 5 cars in the middle of my street (SPOILER...was trying to look criminal). Mind you I am the only house on the street. Police just happened to drive by and notice all the cars. Apperently I made it look authentic. As the police pulled up, I started to walk up to them with one of my camera rigs. In the dark they didnt know what it was and drew their guns at me! Lets just say it was an eventful night.

I'd drop down on you too, if I saw that rig coming at me in the night.

Looks like Spiderbrace is a "simpler" copy of the Cavision concept. Made mostly from PVC but designed primarily for camcorders larger than mine. Your rigs look very workable.

I think a serious written complaint to the police chief is in order. Those guys need some serious training. They all carry (or should carry) extremely bright tactical flashlights some of which are compact enough to be carried on a belt.

I teach a course I wrote on Defensive Handgun skills and do some of it at night. If my students can, in just a few minutes, learn to effectively use small flashlights to very briefly illuminate and identify, those police officers have no excuse.

A camcorder rig with a fur windscreened mic on top does NOT look like a weapon, and guns pointed at you put you at very serious risk.

Our Sherrif's Dept uses our gun club range for training exercises, many at night. As the range executive officer, I often assist the other club officers (Prez, Vice Pres, Range Officers) in supervising on "stage" setups so our club's safety procedures are followed to the letter, and I get a chance to shoot the exercise in turn with the deputies on each of the stages. Light, illumination, and identification are graded and critiqued.

I'm looking forward to seeing your entry.

Bruce

The problems of shooting live actors

Chris Barcellos shot his main footage yesterday and his lead actress pulled out on him a couple hours prior to the shoot. (Poor guy, I thought).

My shoot day starts this afternoon and my WWII re-enactors (spoiler), with full uniforms, weapons, jeep etc, pulled out on me this morning. (Arghhh)

UWOL looks better all the time.

Chris

(Time for thinking on my feet - hearing clock ticking)

Rough edit complete. Now it's time for tweaking, graphics, and sound. I'm feeling close though.

Haven't entered one of these in a long time. Looks like I missed the cut off date.

I've still been working on my craft from time to time though. Maybe I'll hit the next one.

I'm going to have to bow out of this one. Between my co-author and I we can't get our sched's together and I leave town for a week and a half right away. Next time...

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done.

I spent most of today in a bad mood, feeling like this whole thing was falling apart at the last minute, as usual. After a few hours of experimentation and deep, soulful contemplation, however, pops and I have reached the conclusion that a few bits of band iron, a flattened section of smoke pipe, one of my old still camera tripods, and a boatload of old rags will solve all our problems.

Production begins tomorrow.
