Tales of Wonder and Woe - UWOL #14

Thought I'd get this thread started.

Had an exceptional day filming Saturday. So much so that I was able to put together a film. I'm sure I'll do something totally different by the deadline but it's nice to know I won't be in the shark tank. :)

Getting ready to head back out this morning and see if I can continue to get some different footage than what I normally shoot.

Hard to believe my little rapids on Prairie Creek won't be in the film. I think it's been in almost every film I've done. :) Maybe I better go out and shoot a bit of the rapids just in case. :)

Headed to California on Friday. So we'll see if I can come up with something to add while I'm out there. Won't work with what I currently have though so we'll see.

Cor, someone's been busy!

So far I've just managed an hour in the bath today, planning my film. I will credit my co-producer, Mr Rubber Duck.

I'm currently figuring out how to work rain into my theme... I think it may be unavoidable this time round.

What's that song - "listen to the rhythm of the falling rain . . . . "

A still from some of the footage I shot yesterday.
Was a fantastic day except for the bloodsuckers. Got bit about twenty times so Burt's Natural Bug repellant does nothing for Iowa skeeters. Also pulled off four ticks once I got home.
The sacrifices we make for UWOL! :)

Kevin,

first thing I did was set down with one of my guitars and work out "Listen to the rythm of the falling rain" and thought I could use it, now I see someone else has grabbed it!!

probably wont rain enough to get the footage anyway!

On to a new idea, Hummmm!!!!

I've forgotten what rain looks like. We've had less than 2" in the last 60 days (normal is 10"+). We've been under a heat advisory that long to (heat index over 105F).

Guess I can video the ground cracking, the grass turning brown or my electric meter spinning like a top.

Was out of town for the weekend. When I saw the topic, my first thought was that this was going to be easy. As I have been reviewing my options, I feel like I am going into idea paralysis. Every topic seems great until I think about it a bit more and then find something wrong. I guess I am just going to have to go shoot something.

At least I don't have to worry about rain here in California, but it's a good thing the topic isn't "green".

Kevin - couldn't you at least pretend this was a bit harder... (-:

I just got back from Algonquin, downloaded 10 hours worth of tape, over the last 2 days.

Now, the arduous task of seeing if there is anything worthy of the competition.

I hate swimming!!!

Rich, you equate done quickly with good. Sometimes the two are VERY far apart. :)

Dale, why not use it? I think it would awesome especially if you're doing the music yourself. besides as you know we all have the same theme and our films are always different. So if someone else wanted to use that music, their film would still be different from yours.

I say go for it!!

An idea popped up in my head, and I have filmed a little for my entry.
Been nice weather here for weeks too. Well that means until the last few days when we have had a nice mix of sun and rain.
Had to stop filming before I got all I wanted today.
My camera is allergic to the wet rain. :)

I had a big scare, thought I was having a stroke. Dodged that, but I am going to be semi-out of commission for about a week or more and I am not sure how that will affect my ability to shoot. I am suffering from a rather scary disease-- Bells Palsey.

I am reading everything with my left eye right now,,,, not my best eye. I used to joke with people that when I finally went to a wedding that I wasn't shooting that I would still be watching with my left eye closed. That's exactly what happens with this disease. This disease actually freezes your eye open, and this occurred on my right side. When I try to use both, the left tries close down, because the right isn't blinking, and it is expecting it to respond. So I have to wear a patch on the right eye. To protect it from damages from not blinking.

Also have compelte numbness on right side of face, lips won't work, and I stagger like an old drunk....

see wiki on this : Bell's palsy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A lesson here for outdoor shooters, with similar symptoms. Lyme's disease should be considered as a possible culprit....

I still hope to have something on board..

Wow Chris, I have a few friends that had that in the past. One woman had it on her wedding day. All her wedding pictures from the hospital show her with half her face paralyzed. Truly scary stuff!

Hope you recover VERY soon!!!

Chris, very sad to hear about your suffering, hope youŽll recover soon!

Hope to get my footage finished this weekend, as IŽll be very busy the next few weeks. If weather and some shy creatures will cooperative, I will be very happy. Finger crossed!
