I hope you like it.

Kevin:

You need to hookup with Steven Dempsey. He has some awesome Yellowstone stuff too... Here is a post with some of the footage.

Weirder yet, I have short downloaded from his website that has a title come up almost exactly like yours even at the same waterfall, though his is wide.

I've never been to Yellowstone, but I think you've captured the soul of the place Kevin. Just beautiful and it makes me understand what you say about passion. And I really do wish you could stay out of the tank.

All the best

Kevin, that was awesome footage from Yellowstone.
Your video made me feel like I was there.
Thank you for sharing.

Hope you manage to stay out of the tank.

Move a side guys… I’m getting in!
I hate this theme… We only got two species of marine mammals in my area. The first one is Harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena and that one is so rarely seen that that was no way to think of that one. The second one is Gray seal Halichoerus grypus and that should not be a big problem to get on film… the only problem is that my boat doesn’t work and I have not got a fair price from anyone that can take me out to the seal colony. I guess that it is a few days left… maybe I can get out that, but the weather doesn’t look good enough.

Well well… that will always come a new challenge…

Sad to see you in the tank, Markus.
I guess the weather on the south east coast of Sweden have been almost as bad as on our west coast, past weeks. Maybe there is a chance for you to get something on tape these last days before deadline? It would have been great to see some grey seals.

All the best

Yeah, I think this is a tough one if you don't want to film domestic animals.

Some of us are blessed to be in places where that's more possible than for others.

Per, if you know where to go in Yellowstone you can consistently film bears.
For instance Rosie the black bear hangs out by Tower Junction and Roosevelt.

The black bear in the Yellowstone flick was walking down the road. I drove ahead and filmed for a while. I have footage of it walking past my bumper.

Left, ate breakfast and came back and filmed some more which is what's in the film after it had walked off the road.

Chris,

That is Steven's Yellowstone title. That's my little homage to him. :)

I emailed him and asked him what font it was and how he manipulated it. Good eye for catching that. :)

Yeah, mammals is a frustrating theme for me. I know I could have been in Yellowstone the beginning part of September and really done something I would have been proud of.

Oh well, it's what Wednesday, that gives me what 2.5 hours of sunlight to get something shot before the deadline?

Moving into a new house is consuming every waking moment, and we haven't even closed on the house yet. Paint colors, carpets, furniture, loan papers.

Yikes!

That plus my day job and it looks like I won't even see my camera for another few weeks.

Sigh.

there's some good shooters heading to the tank this round...rats!

i am thinking that this Challenge is going to yield up some of the most interesting films to date--and also going to fill the shark tank with folks who can't put it together. it's pretty much make-or-break with the cooperation of the mammals.

it is a good opportunity to support your local wildlife rehab facility with a free 30-second spot.

A week after 9/11 I was traveling through Yellowstone. We went to the over look for that waterfall. At time, all I had was a Sony Digital 8, as I recall. When I was heading out to the outlook to set up the camera, lightening started rolling through the area, and that thunder was a bit frightening.... Though it best not to set up and shoot at that point.... so I'll have to go back.

Okay - I'm in - hope the water's cold (I'll warm up in the sauna first)

I had some very average footage and I thought about doing something with it but had a look at some of the past entries - wow! you guys do some amazing stuff. I'm happy to have even stuck my hand up - next time I'll be ready!

Hey you guys... Kevin, Paul, Jeff and anyone else out there thinking of taking a swim...

GET OUT THERE AND FILM! The deadline hasn't happened yet. Film road kill for all we care! Pull it off! Kevin, as I recall you put something together in a day last time and you were in the winning circle. Better than I've done the entire challenge. Take Gabe as your inspiration! He did it... in the nick of time he did it, and as I recall he got LOTS of input, especially from you Kevin!

Remember, it's all about the t-shirt guys! Keep your focus! (HA!)

Sincerely,

Cat

I'm trying.

Let's see, Kevin is tied up by 6:30 every morning until Thanksgiving. Sun rises here at 6:54.

Kevin gets back to the office at 7:10. Sun sets here at 7:05.

Takes Kevin 20 minutes to drive out to the nature center where he wants to get some footage. Trails close at sunset. Kevin is sad. :(

I'm hoping to squeeze some tim in Sunday and maybe be able to go out by 3PM to film. so we'll see.

All I know is I have to hit the hay cause 5:30 is gonna be here before I know it! :)

Arrrrggggggghhhhhhh!!!

"Glug glug gluuuuggg......"

roughly translated from underwater speak:

"Had plans for this one, but I've actually taken a contract for a load of video stuff, which is great, but it's tied all my spare time up :( So looks like i'll be swimming with the sharks !!!"

Good luck all, looking forward to watching your entries!!!
