Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Quiet here. Hope everyone is getting along with their film.

I have my idea but still don't know how to flesh it out to make it into a film.

I've asked several people and so ar everyone is clueless in how to make this idea into something.

I'm guessing maybe a better idea would be easier but this one is stuck in my head and after all it is a challenge.

I'll try to give myself until this weekend is over to come up with a way to flesh out the idea into a story, if not I'll see if I can think of something else.

Still doing more thinking than doing. Waiting for the snow to melt so I can get started on with my idea.

How's everyone doing? Hope you have captured some colorful footage by now.

Already one film submitted.

I am in a similar position. I locked onto an idea at the beginning of the challenge but I know it is not a very good idea. It is hard to get out once it is set but, as there is still some time to go, I am hoping I will eventually find a better idea. Lateral thinking needed here I guess!

In the meantime I am looking for footage without a shot list - there is not much color around yet so I am taking what I can find. Hopefully we will have some rain and things will change towards the end of the month.

Hope you come right Kevin.

Wow Gordon - snow already. I hope that doesn't mean we will miss the magnificent fall colours for which Canada is famous!

Marj that's what a lot of people were saying here. It has been awhile since we have had this much snow this early. Not sure how it will affect the fall colours but I'm thinking they won't be as nice in this area this year.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Hi to you all.
While it's snowing in Canada we have had the best summer ever.
Not only the summer, but so far this year has been very good to us Norwegians,
when it comes to the weather.
Usually we have a lot of rain and not so warm, not so this year. I wonder why though?

Hoping everyone is doing fine and shooting some great stuff at your part of the world.
I still got no story for my U31 video, but I'm trying out new angles.
Here's a clip and the color is quite green ;)

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

I've finally been able to figure out sort of how to tell the story for the idea I have.
Now hopefully I can get some of the colors I need to tell it. :)

Just writing things down, moving them around and a story is starting to take shape.
Just need to fill out the middle and Ill have something hopefully!

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Good to hear Kevin.

Thankfully I too managed to extricate myself from the sludge today and I finally have a story idea and a shot list! I have quite a full week, so it will have to wait till next week before I can start the real search.

Funny how you are having good weather this year Geir and Gordon is sitting with snow already!

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Yes, the weather conditions do play a strange game these days.
If I'm right I live much more to the north than Gordon.
I'm here at Larsnes: 62.214163"N, 5.575849"W
Gordon lives her at Pincher Creek: 4935'29.1"N 11356'56.4"W

I'm glad you Marj and Kevin are getting ideas for a strory.
I'm still thinking about what to focus on in my video.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Well I have chosen an idea - a bit different for me this time, as I have not shot any footage (hopefully today I'll make a start), but I have an almost complete sound track laid down.
We too have had a late hot summer, with temperatures in the mid 30s until this week, when its back to a more seasonal 25
Good luck to all!

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Yes Geir you are farther north than I am but living on the east side of the Rockies makes for interesting weather. Last week some of the daytime highs where 3 or 4 C, getting below freezing over night and now we are getting up to 27C. I've got no excuse now, so I better get out and get some footage. The summer was nice here this year also, other than for a few little blips.

You have taken some amazing pictures of sunsets and sunrises lately. Plenty colors to pick from there.

You could have "4 seasons in a couple days," as the story.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Hope everyone is doing fine with their projects, I will be in the shark tank this time. Bought a new house today so have to move out, and just came back from IBC on monday after 6 days of broadcast-stuff, so i have way to much work laid out this month.

Good luck everybody! :)
