Hello from Melbourne Australia

Hello all

Been hanging around these forums for a couple of weeks, yes that's what the bad smell was. Anyways, I love nature doco's and the freedom of art that a camera brings. So i am going to fork out a huge amount of hard earned in the next few days for the purpose of hopefully making a private nature doco. Sure ive never used a camera before and have no idea on how to go about making a doco but im going to try dam it!!

So hello again and hope to see you on the forum's!

Hi Shane,
Welcome to this awesome forum, it really is a great source of information with so many really helpful people.
If you haven't already, check out the UWOL section of this forum, i think it will be right down your alley. When you do buy a camera, try one of the UWOL competitions, you will be sure to learn lots.
Hi also to Ben, didn't realise you were a member too. Great to see you here.
Bryce

Hi Shane, Ben stewve and all fellow Aussies.
This is a great forum, don't worry that we seem isolated from the rest of the world. The best way to improve is to get out there and do it.

Hi Shane, great source of interesting and helpful people in this forum, good luck with your project, we'll help where we can, and that lunch Idea isn't too bad either, I wouldn't mind putting as few faces on some of these helpful faces to boot.

Ben.

So they still have not given "Emmylou" (Pevensey) her old name back? - such is the power of film, even after over 20 years. I played the theme from the series on an accordion on the riverbank over there in mid-1984 while on a travel through. There. Some useless trivia for you. They must have re-built a few more or moved some in since the count of four when I was there.

One was running with a diesel motor with a relay drive to the steam motor, thence to the paddle wheels. Emmylou (Pevensey) and the mission boat were still steam driven.

Hello,

I'm from Melbourne too. Good luck with your filmic adventures. If it's a hobby then it will be heaps of fun. If you eventually make money from your hobby then that some serious fun.

There are a surprising number of Melbournites around on this forum, hopefully we help each other out at some stage.
