Cool, how'd you like it? I've heard mixed opinions about it.

I went to the Motion Picture Institute of Michigan (MPI), which is based in Troy - mpifilm.com. Those are pretty much the only two non-college film school programs in Michigan, so I was going to say if you went to MPI, we might've shared a class.

Anyway, see ya 'round the boards!

Specs Howard is a great atmosphere, nice teachers but not so great of an education. To be quite honest, the school hasn't tought me much! They really focus everything around news production, and 70-80% of us don't want anything to do with stuff like that. If I were to choose a school again, Specs wouldn't even be an option. I would have probably headed to Toronto. . . but I mean, I'm only 2 months away from being done. By the time I realized I wasn't getting what I wanted out of the school, it was just too pointless to back out. Sounds like I would have REALLY prefered MPI. . .

Millbrook, Ontario, Canada

Greetings to all members on this forum! Well done Chris and all who help to moderate - this really is a great place to be!

My wife and I have a small hobby farm in the beautiful rolling hills near Millbrook, Ontario, Canada. We both work at a local community college.

My interest in video is strong but my experience is light. I currently have a Canon S2 IS purchased last summer. Really enjoy the camera but have some questions which I will pose in another active thread.

I would like to purchase a camcorder. Can any one suggest what forum category to post in with a request for specific recommendations? Thanks!

Don

Hi Don, good to have you with us here on DV Info Net, welcome aboard!

Our Open DV Discussion forum is our general forum. There are a lot of threads
already in there from people trying to figure out which video camera to buy.

Take a look around that forum and if you can't find what you are looking for
(you can search within just that forum if you want) post a new thread there.

Good luck!

Grand Valley, eh!

Hi Michael,

Been away from the DV info site for a while so missed your post. Thanks for the greeting!

I used to live in the Hanover - Durham area many years ago and travelled through Grand Valley area a couple of times. That entire region is very scenic with lots of fabulous rivers and streams. Now I'm in the Kawartha Lakes region, different countryside but also beautiful.

When I first joined this forum I owned a Canon S2 IS digital camera and was looking for a video camera. I have interests in wildlife and car racing video (extremes I know but that's me for now). Got some good advice from Gary Silverman on stock car racing video equiipment - Sony VX2100 - but had trouble finding one here in Ontario and the price was out of reach.

So, recently I decided to go for the Canon Optura 50 and get some experience. Then in a couple of years when all this HD stuff gets more reasonable, upgrade to a more professional camera.

The main thing is for now I'm having fun with the camera! ~ Don

Hey Don! Millbrook, Ontario! Didn't your city double for Millbrook, Kansas, in David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence"?

A History of Violence

Yes, you are correct. It was quite the commotion, especially when Viggo Mortensen was around. Millbrook, Ontario, really is a very small 4 corners type of town yet has several viable businesses along the main street; typically that is where all the filming takes place. A number of films have been done in the town and so the town residents have more or less gotten used to it. We actually live in a rural area outside the town so there was no imposition on us other than when we wanted to go the local hardware or grocery store. It has earned the town residents some bragging rights I guess!

Hello from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada!

Greetings, all.

My name, as you can see, is Lyndon Horsfall. I'm an independent writer, video artist and filmmaker with my own production company DragonGem Productions.

Just joined, and looking forward to learning from you all, as well as hopefully imparting any knowledge I can that may be helpful. I've already learned a great deal from "lurking" for awhile.

Cheers, and I hope to get to know all of you soon!
