That particular individual was falsely claiming he was Chris Haarhoff in his online profile a while back--a major black mark, in my opinion.

Hey Charles,

when is your Steadicam book/DVD/seminar/workshop/school going to form?

It's so unfortunate you have work :)

DVD is progressing, hoping to schedule the shoot alongside another shoot with similar requirements in the next six weeks.

Also, Charles did you get my last email?

LA Shoot This Monday

A client of mine is looking for a shooter and boom pole guy for a shoot in 3 miles from LAX on Monday. She is an exercise guru and is doing a DV on her method. The shoot would take place in a gym. Now here is the confusing part----Her DP in Texas shot 16:9 progressive using a XL2----I shot in New York using a PD-150 (didin't find out until the day of the shoot that the first part of the video was shot in 16:9), so what I did was frame for 16:9 and shot in standard 4:3. Anyhow, I'm looking for someone with an XL2, or any other camera that supports TRUE 16:9. Sound would go directly into the camera and I all I would need is boom pole operator with a decent mic.


Sorry for the late post, but this lady is a newbie at production and hasn't dotted all her "i's" and crossed her "t's". Having said that she is a joy to work with. The pay isn't great, 500 bucks for half a days work, but maybe someone has a couple of hours of down time to fill and would like to work with a gorgeous fitness person! (You can see I'm desperate). Anyway, contact me at rextilleon@gmail.com ASAP if you are interested.

Need greenscreen footage for tracking

I just bought PFTrack for usage next year with some greenscreen sequences in a music video, but I don't yet have any footage to learn the software with. If anyone has some motion shots of green or bluescreen footage with tracking markers (less than a minute is fine) that they'd be willing to share, I'd appreciate it. Any survey data would also be helpful. I have space on an FTP server where you can upload it.


Thanks,

Bob-

Thanks. Although useful, these shots are all statics. What I'm looking for is motion shots with tracking marks (to matchmove the motion to 3d backgrounds).

I think it's just a confusion of semantics. When I say static, I mean that the shots are are all locked off--there is no camera movement.

Tracking marks are markers (usually pieces of tape) that are placed onto the greenscreen material so that the matchmover can track the camera movement of the shot in post as a 3d vector and match it to CG elements. There are pieces of software, such as Boujou and PFTrack, which do this automatically. Without the tracking marks, there would be no reference within the frame as to the three dimensional movement of the camera, so it would have to be estimated manually, which is excruciating.
