Hey to all you Canadians eh.

I am in Hamilton Ontario, I know there is quite a few DV people in Hamilton and Toronto area.

I would like to create an informal co-operative for some idea and possible gear exchanges. not so much cameras but I have a few toys I would gladly loan out to a person who I know will respect the goods.

I.E. portable blue screen, 10 foot boom arm on heavy tripod & dolly. Audio boom asorted lights 1k, 300w, 150w etc. cruise cam and sticky pod on the way... Studio space and so on...

I am an aspring film writer and hopefully will eventually produce, shoot, edit and become the next Robert Rodriguez or M. Knight Shamalan.

Pipe Dreams for sure but it's better than my "real" 9-5 job.

Cheers All

Chris

Chris, I feel the same way about gear loans and my future, and yes it certainly beats my 9-5 job :)

I live in London. I don't have as many accessories as you do, but it's nice to know there's someone local who does!

Never heard of the cruise cam, could you explain how it works?

Hi Andrew,

The cruise cam is on of my newest ebay finds :-).

It mounts on the passenger headrest in you car and provides a stable in car shot out the front window.

It was actually desinged for highway patrol cops to tape pursuits and encounters.

All those TV shows that show the "in cruiser" crazy pursuits use the cruise cam. It looks a lot better with a 3 chip cam as opposed to the cheapy one chippers they give to cops.

I only paid about $35.00 US for it. I couldn't make one that cheap.

I just checked ebay and the seller still has them.
This is just for reference I am not trying to sell this product ...
item #2966056727 the seller is marek_01 (I hope this is okay, if not moderator please remove this paragraph I don't want to cause any problems).

Its a cheap neat toy that will come in handy one day.

Of course it's available to loan, you can't bust the darn thing.

Cheers

Chris

Hmm, I could make something similar for about $4. A piece of wood, with holes drilled in it matching my headrest rods, then use a threaded screw for my camera :)

What camera do you use with this CruiseCam? My XL1 might be too big for it, I don't know how solid that design is.

With regards to the cruise cam, yes it could be made on the cheap but its actually quit well put together.

I've made a few things and am experimenting with a few more. You basically have to know when its worth your while to spend the time and effort to make it yourself; Versus finding a deal. In this case for 40 bucks I'll take the easy way out.

I have only played with it a bit but it holds my pd100 with the "big-ass" sony 0.7 wide angle on it no problem. It should hold the XL1 okay.

Cheers

Chris

Hi

Hello,

Been reading for a while and now registered to support Canadian population :)


Tons of great and helpful information on these forums!

Since '98, I have been mostly doing desktop publishing, then got into 3D modeling and animation, then video and editing.

Right now an Interactive Arts student at SFU, and also working on my Computer Science degree in order to gain some job security :)

To those who are in Vancouver, BC, have you gone to local Film Industry meet ups? http://filmind.meetup.com/ (select country and your city, in my case Canada, Vancouver)

There is a local film festival happening in February here and it would be nice to get in contact with some local film makers.

Hey Alex
Welcome to the forum!

You'll soon notice there are quite a few members from Vancouver here. I'm starting to think we are the most represented city on the forum.

I know this thread's been dead for a while, but I'm interested to know if you actually got funding from HRDC, and how the business is going now. I'm broke as a joke and I couldn't find funding in Cape Breton...

I wanted to email you David but your email isnt listed =\

I'm planning on shooting a feature this summer, I have some investor interest and hopefully it'll work out.

Let me know what you do now, you might have more experience, etc.
