I've seen this piece, Ken...

(Hey James, the other day Dave Newman grabbed your demo reel out of the studio and showed it to me over at his house)

James edited it and it's really a superb job. The XL video provides the intro piece under opening titles. James cut it very fast, very snappy, so that although you can see all these various nightlife scenes on the city streets, nothing lingers long enough to reveal that's it's not the top-end Sony.

I didn't know just how good an editor James is until I saw that, and it took Dave by surprise, too. Media Design is very lucky to have him!

James, I envy you, wish I could find a way to get back to Texas. Houston, Austin, Corpus Christi, anywhere would be alright, even Abilene, well, I don't know about Abilene. Not quite that desperate.

Another One from Texas

Iíve been lurking about for a couple of months and even responded to some screenwriting posts. Now that Iím learning enough to have questions of my own, I thought Iíd introduce myself and see if I can move from Tourist to New Boot. My name is Philip Boyer. I currently work as a technical writer in Lewisville, Texas (just north of Dallas). I am extremely new to digital video and own no equipment, except for my Sony TRV-25 and a $24.99 tripod from Wal-Mart (great for those jerky camera moves).

Iíve written about a dozen screenplays (none optioned, none sold). At the moment, Iím trying to convince my wife that wanting to get the equipment to shoot my own screenplays, both short and feature-length, is not a midlife crisis (Iím too young for that), or, if it is, at least itís a better one than getting a sports car or a trophy wife.

Iíll be attending the free DV Reveloution Seminar when it rolls through Dallas on March 3 (the 10-12:30 time slot, anybody else here attending that one?) and plan on taking at least the first day of their three-day course when it comes back to the Dallas area.

Hello, Philip. Another writer!

It's amazing how many people are from Texas here on this forum. At least with their posts, I don't have to squeeze my ears in order to decipher the heavy Southern accent! I just spoke to one fellew from the Texas Panhandle last Sunday. I didn't think I could squeeze my ears for an hour and a half! Welcome to the foums.

Howdy, Philip, from another Texan. Don't pay these Canucks any mind...they're harmless.

Please keep us posted on developments of your upcoming projects (go ahead and get started with the equipment you have...I'll bet your wife will get equally hooked on filmmaking once she sees some results...plus you'll be getting the first few bad filmmaking attempts that we all supposedly have in us out of the way before you get your XL1s).

Good luck. When you get some footage, be sure to post a link for us to check out.

Bienvenidos Amigo,

Lot of us writers and filmmakers from Texas. (I'm in Houston).

As to whether or not filmmaking is a better mid-life crisiis than a sports car or "twinkie" -

Well, I've got a script on that one...

Bill

Welcome aboard Philip! It is great that you join us as writer because
I don't think we have that much of them here (yet). Anyways,
welcome, and enjoy the place!

Hi Philip, my wife's family is from Carrollton, just south of you. Let's hook up for a beer next time I'm up there. Welcome aboard,

Hi, Philip. I'm just a few miles up the road in Denton and work at UNT. I have three XL1 rigs for shooting music events in a concert hall here that has fabulous acoustics. We also do surround sound in that space. You are very welcome, as is everyone on this list, to come for a visit. Be in touch.

Hey Tom,
I'm in Brownsville, Texas, and about to purchase a Panasonic DVX100 for some indie work. I recognize your name from somewhere.....do you know Brodie O'Brien from Harlingen?

Nope, went to SJA and then to UT-Austin for film school and now I'm back in the Valley starting up www.southtexasfilm.com. Today was actually our first day working on some projects..one in harlingen and the other in downtown Brownsville (that Mexican film you probably heard about).
