Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

The very minute the theme was announced I knew what I would film, however 16 days have gone by and I haven't gotten a single scrap of footage. That will change today. The only big question I have is whether to let the action speak for itself, or explain what is happening since there is physical science at work. It may have more impact and be more of a challenge to devise a way to tell the story without words, though it will be much harder and take more time., and if I mess up people will be scratching their heads thinking ' what?..'

How intriguing! That's a tough one but you'll figure it out, Bill. Maybe if you have time to let someone see a rough cut they can tell you if they get it or not. Good luck!

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Well, at last I got an idea :) Will start to shoot this weekend. Luckily I have some days off next week, so I should have enough days to get what I need.

Great that some of the "old timers" are back in business, hopefully we got an exciting round with lots of films!

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Hello everybody. I signed up on the competition yesterday and i am so lucky these days. Having alot of tools availiable is awesome. Just shot some 1500 fps 1080p test shots at work on tuesday. If i had that camera availiable and the opertunity and the time for a weekend shoot with that i bet it would have been a cool theme for the competition.

But thats not going to happen. I am the "best man" for a friend this weekend so no weekend shots, and the camera is not availiable.

Is it allowed for one person to join up with another for a UWOL competition?
I was thinking time, and deadline so close, maybe that could be the solution?

Vegard, there are no rules against cooperation with others. Go for it.
To bad that camera isn't available for you. Would be really cool to see some of those shots.
Good to have you back with us!

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Yay, at least I have filmed something. And I can see the sunshine for a change. Been a while since last time.
Hopefully I got enough footage to build the story I want.
At least I'm staying away from the dreadful shark tank this round.

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

I was finally able to shoot some this morning. I havenít reviewed yet, but some shots looked good in camera. Iím pretty sleep deprived right now so I hope I wasnít just fooling myself. I used my new LED ring light to shoot some macro. It looks like it will be quite useful. Iím not sure I can use any of this footage to tell a theme related story so I may end up just putting up 30 seconds with music to avoid the sharks. I hope everyone else is fairing better. Iím glad to see that Trond finally got some dry weather and that Dale, Vegard and Steve got in this round. Probably like most, Iím also waiting to see what Kevinís grand idea is. Good-luck all!

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

It's a wrap!
(Well, at least as much as time, work and weather permitted)
It's a "staying away from the sharks" entry, haha. But I did have fun at all times.

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

I finally came up with a ďPlan BĒ idea that is more of a story (if only just) than just putting up some footage to avoid the sharks (if only just). I think the deadline is Tuesday so Iím going to give it a try. Fingers crossed.
