I've got your solution: You wear a REALLY big hat, and you cut a hole in it, and you have the VX2000 (strapped to your head, of course) peeking through. Bingo! Hands free hidden camera show. When you have to change tapes, you say, "Uh, I gotta go to the bathroom" (or something).

Another thing you might consider is filling a niche. Do you know how many strange fetish movies there are these days? They even have movies where people get tickled (for real). So, I'm thinkin' "plumber's crack movies". Start a whole new genre. . .create a whole new fetish/perversion that people didn't even know they had. You'll rake in millions.

I ought to be living in NY/NJ pretty soon, and if I have a project, you can pull cables for me or whatever. I'll be one of those guys I just told you not to work for because I'm basically just a schmoe with camera taking advantage of a guy willing to work for free. If that doesn't dissuade you, however, then groovy. Can't get more honest than that.

1.6x in Toronto (to borrow)

I'm heading away on a shoot and spent all my money getting my Xl1s fixed, and have no money to buy necessary equipment.

I'm looking for someone in Toronto who may be interested in swapping equipment from time to time. I have lots of the cool gadgets for the Xl1, but what I really need for the shoot is a 1.6x extender

In return, I can always lend batteries, a 3x lens, and if we really trust each other, my 35-350 EOS lens.

So let me know if your an XL1s owner, and would mind lending gear.

email me at michaelds@(remove)digitalcrossing.ca

HI I'm George! I live in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I work at a local PBS station here in town.We mainly do documentaries and live studio work. I shoot and edit a lot of stuff on the side as well. I have a JVC dv5000 and a JVC HD1. I edit on Sony Vegas. I am a whiz with After effects. I am also trying to learn Animation Master, and Bryce 5. I am not too close to Williamsburg, but I thought I would send you a line regardless. Virginia videographers have to stick together. lol

Need Volunteers For National Project

Thought I'd let everyone knpow about a very worthwhile project called "Timeless Voices." It's an effort to collect the stories of aviators of all types for the EAA, or "Experimental Aircraft Association." It's a great way to do some meaningful video production and have your contributions be seen by thousands.

Goals of Timeless Voices of Aviation
- To collect thousands of first person video oral history recordings from individuals who have impacted aviation's development.
- To document and preserve these recordings for future generations of family members, teachers, students, historians and others.
- To make the recordings accessible through an on-line video history archive, and initiatives such as Museum displays and TV productions._
- To engage thousands of volunteers in the rewarding process of gathering video oral history recordings.

Being a member, and a contributor, I've enjoyed shooting interviews of people with powerful stories. Personally, I've been trying to get interviews with the older guys who flew in WWII, Korea, or Vietnam. The WWII veterans are passing away at a rate of over 1200 a day. Some of my video is on display at the museum in Oshkosh.

Please visit the website at:
<http://www.timelessvoices.org/>

It's easy to find people to interview. Check the EAA website for a local chapter, and make a call or visit your local airfield and ask around. That old guy sitting on the front porch of the flight service building has some amazing stories. You just never know.
I hope you'll consider it. Thanks,

Damn. Robert. Sorry.

I'm sure that really helps validate my arguments.

I'm in VA Beach. Nothing to put on your reel until later next spring, but wanted to say hello anyway. :)

BTW- Does anyone know of a hungry DP in our area? If he light it and work it I'll give him a DVX100 and mini35+ lenses to play with for a few days.

(as long as he works for me for a few days too LOL)

Forget Hoboken, Joshua.

It's becoming very yuppy. Very expensive to live there. Unless, of course, you have money. Maybe Robert can put you up? I bet you'll never have any plumbing issues in your apartment. If you shoot anything in South Jersey like the Atlantic City and surrounding area, look me up. I have pretty much the same equipment setup as you plus alot of lighting.

Robert, if you have time and you want to actually get involved in a project, who knows, maybe Josh, you and I can collaborate and shoot something in the NY/NJ area. Three camera setups are always fab. If you need a police car, police station or two I can probably swing that as well.

Hey Bravo, did you check out Josh Bass's "reel"? He's pretty damned good. I'm a bit jealous.

Robert, check out Bass's website and let that be inspiration for you in your creative digital endeavors. I bet Josh devoted himself to honing his craft by doing doing doing. That's the only way it gets done. Pick up your camera and use it.

I have my very first lesbian wedding video this Saturday. (I kid you all not. I am hoping to break into a brand new "niche" with this one. I may even put "Alternative Lifestyle Friendly" on my business cards! BWWAAA HAAA HAA HAA HHHAAAA!)

Let's see how long it takes for Bravo to call me with his ball bustin' questions like "Hey Hugh, can I come up and be your assistant?" or "Hey Hugh, are you shooting the honeymoon for free?" The, er, "groom" used to be a Playboy Bunny and the bride is a concert pianist. The clock is ticking. Tick... tick... tick...

Thanks for the info , this type of work interests me very much as I am starting to do Video Biographies for people. I have checked out the timeless voices website for info.
I work at the VA hospital in Cincinnati so I have access to a large number of Vets so it should not be hard to find some to interview.

Thanks Samuel!
I've been told by Zach Baughman (hope I remember the spelling here) that they are looking to have a television program in the future on one of the Discovery Channles- probably "Wings." They do several shows currently.

Jeff :>)

Let's continue the Josh Bass devoted portion of our discussion in Private (I won't hit on you. . .maybe), and let Robert (Brian, who's Brian?) retake this thread. And now you've invited Mr. Bravo's criticism of my reel. . .my world is crashing down around me. I fear Mr. Bravo will tear me apart.

Anyway, Bob, I suggest a multiple route, if it's really what you want. You can use your cam to do stuff, and PA on bigger stuff, and steal the secrets from the big stuff and apply it to your stuff, if possible.

To reiterate, on working for free with the cam, I state one last time that in my experience, if you don't outright lie, you won't be hired for anything you're not qualified for. Let's say you misrepresent yourself on your resume. Most people want to see a reel. So, let's say your borrow so and so's reel, who's awesome, and say it's yours. Chances are they're going to want to meet with you and discuss the project prior to just hiring you outright. During such meeting, you will sound like dumbass who doesn't know anything, because you faked your resume and are in possession of a reel that wasn't done by you, and your prospective employers will think "Hmm. . .good res and reel, but what a dumbass," and you won't be hired. The people that will hire you won't have enough pull to get you blackballed or blacklisted or whatever. Anyway, lots of fools continue to make money even though they suck (see threads on this forum about amateuring incompetent wedding videographers, for instance), and you don't sound like a fool. If you know how to use that gear, that's half the battle. Now you have to get the craft part of it down--the artistic technique. Now go make your "Plumbers Gone Wild" video, and pull cable on "Resident Evil 3: Why Did We Make This?" in the meantime.
