East Texas! yes, I have all my teeth :)

Hello, all! I live in Tyler, TX about an hour east of Dallas! I love this area because it has a ton of possible shooting locations! The film industry is NOT very prominent out here so making a movie still produces the "WOW" factor. If you’re driving down the road in LA, Austin, or NY and see a guy with a camera, lighting equipment, and a crew it's really not that big of a deal. You might rubberneck a bit just to see if you recognize any famous actors, but that's about it. But, here in East Texas a guy with a camera, lighting equipment, and a crew is a spectacle!! Everyone in the production is treated like a "rock star" lol. PLUS scoring shooting locations is easy and FREE. Most business owners and general residents of this area are more than willing to help out in any way they can.... because film is a rare treat, here. However, it can be a curse too. Nobody here to collaborate with, no serious actors (aside from the theater class at the local college), A LOT of people with a construction background but no specific film production experience. But all that is fine. I just want to make movies! :)

I'm 25. I use a Cannon XL2, Home built 12' crane, dolly, and lighting rig. Anyone in the East Texas area want to collaborate?

Ah, yes. I miss Texas! I hope to be back in Austin soon! My wife actually came from Tyler!

Best of luck with all your films!

Hey Justin, I'm in Whitehouse!

Lets get together sometime. I am in Whitehouse and have a very flexible schedule. I also use an XL2 as my main camera, but I keep an XL1 and GL2 as backups. I recently acquired a Firestore FS-4 HD and I have a Varizoom DV Media Rig Pro Stabilizer. I have ALOT of Digital Juice stuff if you ever want to "preview" anything. As you know, there are only a handful of media guys in this neck of the woods. I just moved here from California about 7 months ago, and I have only met ONE guy with a camera. It would be great to make that two! Im new to this forum so I dont know if I can send a private message, but if you can please send me your number and or email address so we can hook up!

Best Regards,

D.M. (Mike) Durbin
