Yet ANOTHER Hello from Maryland

Hey all,

I figure I'd jump on the Maryland bandwagon as well. My name is Grey, I'm finishing up at Towson as a film major. In addition to school stuff, I do a lot of pro-bono documentary work on the side with a glass blower in the area as well as some human rights work.

Before school (to pay for it) I was a Navy damage controlman serving on the USS Ponce (LPD-15) out of Norfolk, VA for 4 years (01-05). I did some flight deck stuff (blue shirt), and was a burnerman in the STEAM engine room on top of weighing CO2 bottles all day. We sailed to Iraq twice and it was a pretty all-around horrible experience that has proven invaluable to dealing with the day-to-day of civilian life.

I set up a small editing lab in my apartment off of a unibody macbook pro. I use a Canon GL2 to shoot, but am in the market for a good/cheap boom mic and a Super 8 camera, input is welcome.

Last semester I got my first chance to shoot on film, with an Arri SRII, it was cool. Anyway, I built a ridiculous (120lb fully-loaded) steadicam for it out of door hinges, cabinet holders, and garage door springs from Home Depot that I'll post pictures of if people are interested. It worked... ok, hah, but was fun to build.

If anyone needs a free grip/gofer on a set in the area, please let me know, as I'd like to get some on-set time under my belt before I *try* to jump into the job market.
