Shawn Mielke from California

I know I've achieved Major Player status here, but I thought it might be handy to have my file on hand just the same.

and beautiful girlfriend

I hope to get a PD170 by the end of December.

DV related experience:

a seven minute single shot video utilizing self, feedback, Light and Darkness, and ethereal music......

1 week spent with an XL1S in almost full auto; a sort of documentary within a mockumentary in which I played myself....

current long term educational/training video project, shooting lots of real teacher/ student scenarios, to serve as examples of alternative math teaching methods using original materials........

I am also now shooting dance, as an instructional aid for my girlfriend in her ballet folklorico class, as well as various semi regular local community dance events, simply for more camera experience.

I have recently begun to list possible community related documentary subjects, with an eye towards the local tv channel. We shall see.

In general, my goal is to become an educated professional cameraman and editor in the service of the world.
