Hey Dylan,

My maths is pretty finnicky and I'm still stuck in the 1:8 or so conversion days :P

Bottom line is that the PD150 is going for R5000 less than a new VX2100 :D

Clifton > Camps Bay beach :)

Hey, what street is the film school on there? Kloof? Orange? I hung out at a little coffee shop right by it quite often. Probably moving back to Cape Town next fall for a few months, but that's a secret....

Out of curiosity, what does a new HVX200 sell for there?

Yep, Kloof Street. I'm guessing you sat at Vida E Cafe? :D Their coffee is the staple diet for bohemian yuppies and art teachers. AFAIK, the HVX hasn't been released yet, so I can't help with a price...

Yup, that's the one! Good muffins too.

I ask about the HVX200 because one of the guys I know there said I could have sold it in Cape Town for considerably more than I paid for it here. He usually brings a new laptop over from the USA whenever he flies back and forth, and sells it to pay for part of his trip. I didn't give it too much thought, but might next time I'm back there.

I actually prefer Mugg & Bean (in that Lifestyle center down the road) more :P

You should check into doing a short course when you're back here, the institute is really great and a course runs from 4 to 6 weeks.

Nah, I don't believe in film school. I did enough of it 10 years ago. Plus there is way too much surfing to be done to stay in school for a month.

Didn't go to Mugg & Bean. I'm actually not much of a coffee shop guy. My favorite spot was on the sidewalk front of Caprice sipping martinis and watching gorgeous women block my view of the beach.

Why did I come back to North America again?

Camps Bay/Clifton is really the best place in the world. Take a picnic to Clifton during sunset. Beautiful.

SHH!!! Dude, don't tell anyone!
Seriously. Keep that one a secret.
I was staying at the Bay hotel for a bit, and walked out after a quick rain to see a rainbow stretching over Lion's Head, and the sun setting over the water, lighting up the clouds like an inferno. I grabbed the HVX and ran outside and shot what may be one of the most beautiful skies I've ever seen.

Mannnn, ur making me feel jealous..Im 18 and only made one short :) :)

As for the DVD labelling, I have a fairly cheap Canon inkjet printer (ip4000). It has the added ability of printing onto those printable blank DVDs. Its not pro quality like a DVD ud buy, but it makes them look way more proffesional. Id recomend that for sure..just convince your parents you need a new printer for the household, and make sure u get one which print on DVDs :)

Also, I would have thought, if your doing a lot of projects (possibly more than one at a time) 150Gb mightnt be enough..

Good Luck

*whispers*

One time me and some friends were on Clifton during one of the hottest days in the summer of 2003, it was around six o clock PM, the sun was still up but twilight was setting in, so you had a nice sunsetish hue, the beach was still warm but not painfully hot. All of a sudden we hear thunder and see lightning in the distance, but not a drop of rain for that whole show of nature. That was awesome :P
