I'm in too. No time to think of ideas, let alone contact anybody or do any filming - holiday weekend coming up and I'll be lucky to find time for grocery shopping! If I can keep up to date with other work, for the next six weeks, I should have no excuse for not doing something in the next round.

Come on on on in, Annie, the water's lovely!

I'm in Australia for the start of the next UWOL, but alas I won't have my camera gear (other than my Panasonic digital stills camera which sort of does HD). If I'm lucky, the theme will be all about a severe lack of sleep!

Hi All:

I had best intentions, but not good enough. I had my heart set on covering a local community organic produce and seeds farm that emphasizes the environmentally and economically sound practice of growing organically and feeding the local community. My husband and I own a share that feeds us fresh produce 6 months out of the year. They are called Abbondanza Organic Seeds and Produce. Here is a link: Abbondanza Organic Seeds & Produce .

On August 1, I fired an email off to Shanan a co-owner of the farm explaining the UWOL contest and that I would like to cover their efforts and philosophy of their farm. They have unlisted phone numbers, so email is the only way to reach them. TWENTY ONE days later I received an email from Shanan where she replied to my initial email and said she had just received it and to call her cell phone right away. I did so and now a week later there is still no reply to the phone messages I have left.

So in I go. It's been so busy on the ranch this summer that I have only had the chance to swim once... so at the moment, the water isn't too bad!

On our own home front: We have recently added a miniature Donkey we have named Norman to guard our flock and crew. We simply love him and are thinking of bringing in a little girl friend for him to keep him company at night.

All the best to the UWOL X players, and hopefully Next time.

Cat

No fancy after effects video this round?
I'm already looking forward to October and next challenge.

Cold Water

I hate cold water,

I hope I have better luck with the next challange.

No replies to emails, or phone calls, and Canon is very slow, with both cameras, summer vacations are slowing down their service and parts dept.

Good luck to you all, and to those of us in the tank, let's huddle together, and stay warm.

The sharks can take the ones on the outside of the group.

Well Cat I must say I am really sorry that you have gone swimming. I have said to Tom more than once during the past few weeks that out of all of us you probably have the best chance of winning this round because you have all the right AE editing skills. I was looking forward to what you had in store - guess it will have to wait for another time.

Does "easy easy" mean "easier than 'cream puff' "?

It looks like the shark tank is getting pretty crowded, but get ready for another splash. I'd hoped to do a video, but things have just been way too hectic. I was visiting my mom and family in NY until a couple weeks ago, then shuttling between a couple temporary places before moving in to our rental home a week ago. It took all this time getting my computers set up again, and I just don't have time to get something done now. Not to mention I have adopted an older puppy, Siggy (a distant cousin to Decker, star of one of my UWOL videos) since moving to NC, and he's still settling in and needs a lot of supervision. I will look forward to the next UWOL, with lots of new sights and sounds to videotape.

I'm gutted that I haven't been able to do this one and I think I might follow the lead and approach some organisations about possible films when I have more time. In August I have had only 5 days at home and just not been able to gather any momentum.

I think this is the best challenge yet and I hope Meryem does something similar again but for now I'm going to do some shark spotting !

:-(

Glad I was smart and didn't try to do this one against the odds, 3 trips to the ER, countless tests and they are still working on figuring out why I can't eat anything. We all have different reasons for being here, but we can all sit back and enjoy the water! (and to a lesser extent the sharks trying to eat our toes)

Kinda like a forum Breakfast Club.


Ohh did I say breakfast? I can't wait till I can eat it again......

Meryem,

I like this challenge. It forces me to think and I want to learn from all of you fine film makers that participate in this. That is why I participate. I do my own filming, I do the editing, I do my own music. I love it! As a student film maker I have learned nothing from this round. As a sales person (which I'm not) I could have learned plenty. Meryem you have my respect for picking this theme and trying to do what you are doing. It is not my place to critizise valuable and free information, not to mention leasons. I thank you all for sharing what you know and I look foward to future sharing in what it takes to make a good film. I think that is the bottom line. A good film.

Meryem,

Please don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to the next challenge.

Regards,

Oliver Pahlow
