Shark Tank for UWOL #6

Well Its looking suspiciously like I'm very nearly in the tank. Those sharks can smell my bacon and are looking hungry!

I've had a let down from planned collaborators, that was idea 1 and a great one it would have been too. I've done some covert IR filming in the garden and ended up getting nothing but the local cat. And I've been walking around the local woods playing Tawny owl calls from a CD player hoping another would check me out.

Nadda, Nowt.............zip diddley!

So sorry to hear this Mat! You always make the challenge so ... challenging! I sincerely hope something just falls in your lap between now and the 19th. It can happen! I know that you would never just throw something up just for the sake of being in, but fantastic footage can happen in an instance. It's not over until it's over.

There are still a few days left, so I really hope you manage to come up with something. Don't give up yet!

Mat you crack me up! But I agree with Meryem.... I'm sure you were working on that photo when you could have been shooting film. For shame! ;-).

Cat

Can't help to admit that was very well done!

way to pile on, cat! let's see if a little tough love is motivating.

we should print this on UWOL coffee cups, though...a drink from one of these every morning should keep a few folks out of the tank.

we can call it our "Spend the Morning With Mat" anti-shark tank campaign.

oh dear...

Looks like my first-time signup for the contest is ending in me swimming with the sharks. As a new-comer to this contest I didn't want to fail. The subject I chose was a simple one, weather and animals depending and while they are usually out and about, for almost a fortnight they were just not there...

So I hang my head in shame and take a dip...

I'm still trying to toss around ideas. I have small bits of several different ideas none of which would flow together. So, I'm trying to think of a bridge between them or something totally different.

Getting down to the wire!

Guys,


You know, its ok to not have it all perfect, wonderful and exactly as anticipated.
If nothing else it will be a great editing exercise.

Titles: disgruntled videographer (emphesizing what wasn't got
perhaps)

night labrinth

chaotic collections

Underdeveloped (in numerous ways perhaps)

Night drive


Random access video

Ok, yea I know, easier said than done. Just do an abstract cut of what you have, eh???
One night left to shoot and an hour or two of editing and you are out of there!!
