Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Hi guys and gals,

You probably all know it by now:
Here is the place for the good and the not so good stories.
What goes silky smooth, what caused trouble and everything in between about your making of the entries.

Bring it!

And never forget to pay attention to rule 11 at all times: Have fun!

It's been quiet here..
How is everyone doing? Still twisting your brains trying to come up with an idea?
That's about where I am so far.

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Actually my first wonder is I came up with an idea within a half hour of posting on the theme. Then came the woe of not having time to work on it yet. :-) Hopefully I can get started this weekend, if not next.

My woe has begun, because my idea kept me from sleep for too long. It is too big an idea for a first attempt, so I am trying to find ways to reduce it without losing it altogether.

Sorted! As it will be heavily music based, I will use a shorter piece.

Try this Ewald - it may get you started.

timing - definition of timing by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Because I have limited time in which to do this my story is very simple. Unfortunately, to work, it will rely on finding one or two things that are out of my control - just hope I will find them! Big hunt on tomorrow.

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Tim, your idea sounds interesting. I look forward to see what you come up with.
And welcome to the uwol gang!

I got an idea. But then I would need to learn advanced CGI or animation real super quick.
I guess a new idea is required... Back to the think tank for me.

Think tank is a much better place than the other one that gets mentioned around here... :)

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Went out today to find what I was looking for - and quite amazingly found the two essential shots I needed. Not the greatest of shots but at least I now have the ingredients for a story. Fortunately there is still time to find better shots to replace these but in the meantime these are in the bag.

Hope you all go well this weekend too.

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Well I have an idea that I think may work. I am still working on my mountain caribou project, so I thought I would try to do something that I can incorporate into that down the track. Will be heading up into the mountains tomorrow, so I hope I can start to put something together for this one & stay out of the shark tank!

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

First, Tim, I always seem to think to big for these challenges. the trick is to think small but complete, I never find that easy!!

I have a plan but I will need a second person to shoot some shots for me as well. my subject will not be new to those that know me, but it includes Ducks, raptors, dogs (maybe) and people. And yes it is all about timing!! Hope to start shooting this weekend.

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

I got an idea, and (as my June challenge), I have only this weekend / two days to shoot. Good or bad timing... Time will tell, and off to the mountains I go.

Well, I hope I can finish but I have to say signing up has been the best things I've done in a while to fill the work schedule. If nothing else, you guys are great luck in regards to work. :-)

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

Filmed some this weekend. Got the main shots.
Now I just need the rest... and that is the biggest woe. Will I get it or not. Time will tell.
Oh well, still plenty time until deadline.

How is everyone doing?

Re: Tales of wonders and woes - UWOL 27

I have a little bit of footage in the bag, & an idea for this one, so hopefully I can manage to stay away from the shark tank for this one!
