Hi Tom,

Sorry for the response delay but I was off the internet until just now (8:30pm Wednesday) Great to hear of others in the neighborhood. I'm checking a lot of backed up e-mail right now, but would like to continue the conversation as soon as I get caught up.

Dan

Have either of y'all been to Brandywine Creek? When I was a youngin, my Uncle used to take me hiking through the State Park there. Last time I was there, they were building a Horse Track. Had to be almost 30 years...

Sorry to say I haven't been there yet but I do have an agreement with the Delaware Parks and Rec. to do an outdoors program and I will be going to each of the state parks for taping. Iv'e been to that neck of the woods though and it is a beautiful area. I believe there is a race track there, but I'm not much of a gambling man so I couldn't swear to it.

Dan

P.S.

I have also been to your neck of the woods! I just re-read my post and saw your hometown. I lived in Indiatlantic back in '72. Probably built up now, but I lived in the woods across the street from the beach. There was a small boardwalk about a block long. Had many a good time on that boardwalk! (and in those woods!) A guy I met there, Ken Cooper, and I would hitch-hike across the cause way, up Rt.1 to Cocoa and back across Merritt Island to Cocoa Beach and back down A1A to Indiatlantic all night long smoking nature's herb just to see who would pick us up. (It was the times, too old for that stuff now.) I remember well Florida's real stat motto: "Come on vacation, leave on probation, come back on violation!"

I was there when the guy (I can't remember his name, Dick something, I believe) who owned the surf shop at the the north side of the parking lot got busted for importing coke in hollow surf boards.

I probably should have saved this for a private e-mail, but it brought back a flood of memories. Had to share a few.

I was never the surfer type, but I have spent plenty of time over there... Been here since '66.

If and when you get to Brandywine to shoot, be sure you get the Dupont house and the clocktower. I remember the smell of mint growing wild, and lots of Blackberries and Rasberries. I used to pick them berries, and my Mom would make jams.

I'm not a surfer either, but there were quite a few of them there. I was, as much as I hate the term, a Hippie. I hitch-hiked all over the country back in the '70's. I found Indiatlantic by accident. I stayed a while because the people there were really great. I've lived all over Florida and when you meet true Floridians, you find great people.

Your mom sounds like my grand mother. She made jams and jellies from the berries we picked. I can't find and "store bought" jelly that tastes as good as what she made.

This actually sounds quite interesting. My wife has a nonprofit foundation taking backpacks filled with school supplies to underpriviliged children in South America. A large part of my interest in video has stemmed from do video documentation of this work, which has helped tremendously in her efforts. If I did a short bit on camera talking about my video efforts here, it might be right up your alley. I could also send you a DV tape of her promo video.

One thing that might help is if you posted some questions that we could answer and elaborate on.

Thanks for the reply Laurence. That sounds really awesome. I basically just need anyone who has ever been involved in videography to sit infront of a camera and just talk. How did you get into video ? What are your influences ? What are some of your experiences ? Favourite Experiences ? What is next for you ? Just those kinds of things. I will include my address and email below if you wish to send me a tape or email me. Preferably email me before you decide to send a tape so I know. Also if you contribute to this documentary, you will receive a free DVD copy of the final video.

Dan, Keith,

No, still haven't been to Brandywine, but all around it.
Just did arrive back from Miami. Never care to visit there again.
Dan, maybe we will have an opportunity to meet sometime. Going to the Sunfest?

Tom,

I thought about going (to the Sunfest) I am currently working in OC as a maintenance contractor for a couple of motels. If I do go, I'll park at one of the motels and take the bus to downtown OC! How about shooting me an e-mail to boogieman@americancamper.net?

Dan

I am not sure, if I qualify for a suggestion or not, but here goes

I started out three and a half years ago when I was 14 years old. There was a local television station that was looking for volunteers and I eagerly jumped on board. Prior to this, I had absolutely no intentions of getting in this field. But, as time progressed I started learning more things that I could do with cameras and computers. I started spending learning and playing with these new "toys". At one point, I was so engrossed in TV production that I started falling behind in school (not a good thing btw). Anyway, as I gained more knowledge, I started interacting with more and more people in the field and after three and a half years of hard work, I can honestly say that all this has worked out for me. I have worked with at least 10 different television stations, primarily as a production/technical/post production advisor. I have also marketed my services to numerous corporate businesses as well as some local production houses. I am currently a freshman at Binghamton University with an intended major in finance/accounting [a film maker has to have money =) ]

In this kind of business, you have to remember three things: hard work, sacrifice and determination.

Aanarav you nailed it...

The anecdote above is a wonderful punctuation mark to this thread. Everyone's track is different but this one appears to have left absolutely nothing to chance. Your tag line is pretty much universal for all success, but me thinks we'll see your name on the credit roll running a close second to the cast in the near future.
