New EX1 Letus Short shot in New Mexico done, the first of two. Am currently building its page, but it is now viewable on my blog.

Managed to squeeze them in between filming the doc.

As usual, great shots Phil, and I particularly like the way you select and edit to a particular piece of music for each piece. You obviously have familiarity with and quick access to a wide range of music.

shooting in the desert ...

Did you find the sun hard to work with and what about the sand? Using the Letus means ND filters on the front of the cam via a matte box. I didn't see one on the pics of the shoot?

I knew what music I wanted so I bought it off of itunes.

I didn't have a Matte Box with me but for the sun shot I held a 4x4 ND in front of the lens. The Matte Box was all packed up for the flight to LA.

I shot with ND2 on the camera all the way through. It was bright, certainly brighter than England, but no more than places I have shot in before like the Middle East.

It was cut in a bit of a rush, I will tidy it up soon!

Hi Philip, on your site ( which I very much enjoy visiting btw ), the link for a couple of the films jumps to "my autumn's done come" including your Tent Rock page. I was able to find it by manually entering the page that I guessed (correctly) was it. Just an FYI.

Phil...

yesterday was a long day....i had a bit o' cheer, yes.
Nevertheless...tentrocks is an awesome place. I believe John Wayne filmed more than a few westerns there.
Now my curiousity is piqued. Will your work in the US be screened anytime in the near future?

Not for a while. We are only a fraction through filming!

question:
some shots were nice color balanced skies...that deep blue so typical of NM sky, other shots the sky appeared rather green. Are you using TC2? Did that result in those green skies? or is there some CCing going on?
