Look forward to seeing them.

Trouble never comes alone, it is said.
I was out in the woods to shoot my backup plan today. Snow everywhere and big fat snowflakes falling down from the sky.
Yeah right, in my dreams...

Well, at least this time when I hit the record button, my trusted XM2 was nice enough to say "heads dirty, use cleaning tape". As if I haven't already done that last weekend. (for a total of 4x 10 seconds)
Here we go again...
Hm, maybe this is a sign that I should upgrade to HD soon?

Oh well, have one more day. Can't give up yet.

That's too bad, Meryem! Like Trond (and maybe others) I've got today and tomorrow to come up with something.

By the posts it's looking like we've got 2-3 films done or in the works. Sure hope there are more of you out there!

I started editing a few hours ago. I think I'll finish in time.

I figured you must be pretty confident when you finally signed up, Andris. :) Way to go! Hope all goes well through the finish line.

Yep. All on course here. Just edited the first half together.

Hopefully have a rough edit finished for the composer by end of play today then tomorrow I'll do the grade and pay the price for not using a clapper when I try and replace the in camera audio with the boom audio. Noooo!

Good luck everyone! Can't wait to see the finished films :)

Script rewrite on the fly... I can sympathise with that. I had an edit that was pretty much wrapped up but I wasn't happy with it, so took the thing apart again and tried to reconfigure. Which required another shoot today for another element. I think it'll work though, just had to find a way to push the narrative forward without having the actors on hand.... I reckon it hits the theme, though, so all good. We'll see what happens....

Good luck to all. I certainly learned a few things on the way....

Good afternoon,

Blowing snow, I am setting at the airport for at least a couple more hours if the darn plane will land at all!!!

Reading the posts I hope there are some out there keeping silent but finishing up their films!!!!

If I had to get everthing together as well as all of you I would never finish, am sure.

Andrea, I really hope you finish yours as the last one I watched I thought was pretty creative!!!

I worked on doing a few new things in this video, things I would never do for my usual filming that I do.
It was truly fun but time consuming to be sure.

I will check back when I get to Denver as I have a couple hour lay over there!!!



have fun finishing up!!!!!

Marc, if Catnip was anything to go by I'm sure the film will turn out great! Thankfully I haven't had to do any rewrites with this one although some of the edit was a bit of a slog.

Trond, I can empathise with the camera woes. Had similar problems with my XH-A1 last year. If it hadn't been for the b camera running sound I'd have been completely stuffed. It ended up being down to a bad batch of tapes rather than the camera - so if you're getting errors this regularly its worth checking out. I know there was a bad batch of sony DV tapes recently on the market that caused a lot of people problems...

Beer O clock now, but back into it tmrw am.

Henry, this is the first time I got any problems with the camera since I bought it in 2003.
(well, I had the famous tape transport problem so many people had, but got it fixed under the warranty back in 2004.)
Would be great if it is only this single tape causing trouble.
Crossing my fingers I have it solved by tomorrow.

The Canon XF300 is on my wish/dream list, but the price tag of about $12.500 is too high at the moment.
Yep, it is expencive here in Norway.
