hello to all from thailand

hello, i am marco,was born in luxembourg <small country in europe>,left at age 14 on a merchant ship. in south-america,i got introduced to indigenous cultures from various nations,now,my main focus is in support of their causes. documentary -film is my field of interest. i am on location in south-east asia and australia for the next 15 month. my camera of choice would be an arriflex super16mm. at the moment i am using 2 pd 150s in pal,pcm-m1 DAT and g4tita.with final cut. i would like to connect with someone ,who could advise me on the ideal<?>field-editing addition<s> to my g4. i heard of "firestore", could i bypass a field-VTR with a unit like that? i am also looking to find a strong but light travel-tripod,fold-up steady-cam, a camera rain ,mud and dust-guard. and some very strong travel-cases. my gear will be exposed to some strong vibrations due to rough road conditions in some of the places. humidity is one of the tough issues to deal with.....i have been filming up in alaska,in the brooks-range at 35 below,and i got the footage i wanted <with a battery-belt under the heavy coat and keeping the camera running,covered in polarfleece....but dealing with extreme humid conditions is no fun at this point. thank you for allowing me to post my joys and troubles here. i have been on the road for 9 month since i left alaska in january and have not met <1>other person with whom i could have shared any info regarding this line of work. so, i found dvinfo...and became a member late last night. thank you again,marco

First of all welcome aboard Marco! You seem to be in a very
interesting line of working and it takes you to some interesting
places too! Great. There are a lot of questions in your post and
I suggest you re-post each question (on its own) in the correct
forum which you can choose for when you click DVinfo.Net
Community up above. Not everyone reads introductions, so posting
each question on its own in the relevant forum will get a lot
more reads on your question. Thank you and good luck with you
decision!

You can best post these questions in Open DV Discussion,
(tripod question goes under Support Your Local Camera forum)
naming them something like:

- field-editing addition needed (perhaps an apple ibook?)
- replacement field-VTR
- humid & dust protection needed
- looking for very strong travel-case

etc.

Good luck!

Welcome aboard!

Sa Wa Dee, Marco! Kuhn subi dee lu? Pom chew Otto.

Obviously I do not have a Thai keyboard Marco and my Thai is getting rusty anyway. I see you are down in the Phuket area. I spent most of my time up in the northern areas around the Burma, Laos, Thai border region above Chaing Mai.

Will look for your questions in other areas of the board.

Good to have you aboard!

Adrian, I'm just off the beach in South East Florida. What a life to live. Do they have surfing there? We get great surfing when there's a tropical storm off the coast.

You're making me want to go to Japan.

Sound Post

Hello:

This is my first post with the DV community. I have been working with DV projects at different levels for a couple of years now and have really enjoyed working with independent filmmakers complete their projects.
I manage GM Studios a small personable post production studio in Burbank,CA. We do Protool work primarily for FCP and Avid projects. Often times new filmmakers bring in ideas for sound they would like to have for their picture, without any real idea of the complexity and time involved in making really great audio not to consider the expense.

We put together great sound packages which include sound design, foley,adr, dialogue editng,mixdown and layback. If anyone is interested in pricing or would like to drop by for some sound advice please email me anytime.

Best Regards

Murray Proska

I just got back 2 hours ago from Tokyo. Shot a swedish metal band at a tiny club in Shibuya called Cyclone. A friend and I went up there, we live in Osaka, shot it with an XL-1 and XL-1s.

I sometimes go up to Tokyo to do video gigs, (fashion shows, Goth events, live bands), if you have the budget for train fare, then I can make it.

John Locke is in Tokyo, he was busy last night so he couldn't make it, Adrian should have his camera back by then from Canon. Get me and my friend up there and you can have 5 XL-1's. I also have the fisheye adapter and that fisheye was great in the backstage stuff.

I shot an autograph signing at a small record store and I used the fisheye the whole time, with the stock lens I wouldn't have gotten usable footage, I also have the .7X wide adapter that I leave on most of the time. My friend used the fisheye off and on during the show and we got lots of great shots, now I have to start editing all the footage. We shot it on short notice so we used a friend's friend and he had a small sony and we put that on the back wide shot.

The asian underground scene is where it's at. I've been submerged in it for the last 9 years in Osaka. Gigs in Tokyo have been at Torture Garden at Club Pylon, a Gothic event at the Liquid Room, a corset fashion show in Shibuya, last night's live show. I'll make it up there again in the next month or so.

If it's not feasible to bring me up, I would still like to meet up with you the next time I'm up there, I'll send you my keitai number

William, as soon as I know when my camera will be back from Canon I'll give you a ring. If my XL doesn't get back in time and you need someone to shoot stills I can do that for you.
