Mike,
If you have enough of those dots in the distance, maybe you can put them together and create an alien animal out of it. ;)


Meryem,
Is the upload instruction ready to be sent out yet?

Well, after a solid day editing, I might be able to make something of this after all - and to think, after yesterday's lack of wildlife I thought I was for the shark tank!

Trond - I think a lot of the time I was chasing specks of dirt on my glasses!

Mother Nature is such a bi...... ah hem, tease....

In spite of the weather forecast, the sun came out this morning...
So I packed up my stuff and made the 10 minute drive to the spot I was using hoping for one last chance to shoot some actual moving creatures....

Of course two minutes from my destination....the cloud cover rolled back in, it got dark and looked to rain any second...
Looked around a bit, took a couple of shots...no wildlife though....oh well...
Looks like I'll use what I have...

Good Morning,

Looks like The weather has challenged everyone this round.

I have several shots to make yet but really would like an above freezing Low wind cloudless day to get them. I am going to shoot them tomarrow in whatever we have, then reshoot this week if the weather breaks!! I need to get editing!!, write a script and make the voice over. Wait a minute, that is almost everything!!!

I am working at rule 11, I ofthen think, "Remeber Dale, have fun!! Oh yea!!!!"


Looking forward to the entries!!!

Well I guess I am going to need to settle for one species. I have plenty of footage, so I can string something together. I have a rough edit and some notes for a voice over, but still need to finalize the script, cleanup the editing, and add a little music. But at least I have some footage to work with.

Well... early for once. I uploaded my entry this afternoon. I had a little trouble getting it under the 60mb limit.... but on the 3rd try managed it. Since it has some graphics, I KNOW it will do better on the feedback thread post in youtube or vimeo at a higher res. That will, of course, have to wait.

Now... back to long form.

Trond, you should have an email with uploading instructions. You can also look it up in an old email, if you have one. We have not changed it in a while.

My wife had some fairly serious surgery last Monday and she wasn't recovering as fast as we hoped. So, I've been home taking care of her to make sure she's ok.

She turned the corner finally so if she's ok in the morning I might try to get out for a couple hours. She'll probably be glad to get me out of the house for a couple hours. I think she's tired of me asking if I can get her anything. :)

Hopefully Mrs Kevin is on the mend now. There's only so much TLC she can take, I'm sure! Fingers crossed for you both.

...

Well my film is almost complete... sound almost there, everything lined up, voiceover complete, music in. So that gives me until Friday night to mess around with colour correcting and final tweaks. Given that I can't colour correct to save my life, this isn't at all scary.

Alas, my sound is lacking, and I have no real close-ups. I mistakenly thought "I can get those close-ups and good sound later", but it was not to be. Still, I've managed to put something together that I think fits the topic. And it's been a blast!

Kevin...best wishes for the Mrs.

OK gang...here's a tip...

Don't install a new SSD drive and a new OS, (win7), the weekend before the challenge ends....
What was I thinking....???

Just got everything going good again...
(Jake at Cineform was nice enough to issue me a new key after I wiped my old system without deactivating my copy of NeoScene...Thanks a bunch!)

Now I can finish up...have to stretch the theme a bit, but it's all I got... :)
Oh...and doing VOs with a stuffed up nose...ha...

I am still on Rule #11.

Got something put together, and actually somewhat edited.

Just like Bob, don't mess with the computer.
In my case, my harddrive was giving me grief. I kept blaming the external hardware, and chucked the lot out.
I hadn't used it in a while, so I won't miss it.

My server died, and no amount of troubleshooting, was going to revive it- time to build a new one, when I have some time.

the one external harddrive case still working, has my edited footage on it.

There won't be time for colour correcting, which I know I really wanted to do, as I look back at others, previous videos entered here and elsewhere.

I really need to make time to practice a lot of what I have seen.

For me right now, I am just happy to have started and hopefully finish, before the deadline.

Now I have to choose some appropriate music, no VO, as I am not very good at getting those thoughts out yet, in an intelligible manner- I need a script writting course.


keeping my fingers crossed, and wishing those of you who are not yet finished, good luck!

OK.
I'm not sure that I'll manage to make something for Uwol#15.
Time is running out on me, so maybe I'll just keep my eyes on my upcoming exam (4th nov) and ULF. I'll decide tomorrow.

Best wishes to you Kevin and your Mrs.
