Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

I knew what I wanted to film even before the challenge theme was announced, and it fits in well with my subject. Then I had 3 weeks of setbacks, stitches kept me out of the water for 2 weeks, then a big south swell that needed to be surfed for a week. Finally today I was able to go out and search for the creature that I wanted to study. Here's a still shot of me getting the camera into position, Bill Cousteau...

Simon, don't give up yet.
Still about 1200 minutes until deadline, and you need less than 4 minutes completed film.
I'm sure the nature will give you a colorful idea by then.
Think positive! :)

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

My story has just undergone some rather drastic cuts - for various reasons but mainly to resolve some major problems. Much better now. Still have some way to go before I finish - need a couple of critical shots which are going to be quite hard to find.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

I'm changing the focus of my idea so I'm headed out to shoot today after work.
Still trying to tie all the ideas together into something that makes sense. :)

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Too much procrastination over a vague idea - seems to be my usual form. Admittedly work was a little busier the first 2 weeks of the month. Yesterday was an awesome sunny day, and I spent it inside shunning the light trying to alleviate a migraine.

Did a few test shots today to get an idea of where I might head with it. Maybe some usable footage (a few seconds here and there) - depending on the final narrative.
Next real chance is Sunday and Monday, but will have to see what the weather brings. The forecasts are about as flippant as the weather.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

After one of the mildest winters on record Spring is making up for it. Storms, gale force winds and plenty of rain makes the colours of spring rather drab. Anyway! That's OK. It blew my original idea away, but I have some footage to edit and post up.

Of course, having gone on about what a nice summer we have had, the last few days have been raining....I still need to get a bit more footage to complete - so - hopefully before the end of the week.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

For this challenge I had to finish and upload by the 11th Sept. Luckily as autumn started approx 3 weeks earlier this year I did manage to film, edit and upload by that date. Afraid a bit rushed etc etc, but at least I have managed an entry. Since the 12th I have been away filming another project. One of the subjects I filmed would I been ideal for this theme, so i thought I would share a short clip for you, but of course too late for my entry. Originally did not had internet where we are based, but luckily I have found somewhere to access it, so now looking forward to watching your entries.

Re: Tales of Wonders and woes - UWOL 31

Been out filming the last could of days.
Shot a fair amount but still struggling on how to put my idea into words.
I know what I sort of want to do but haven't been able to get it all to gel together.

Hey Mick - that is stunning!

Kevin - I can't wait to find out what your story is all about - you seem to have agonised all the way through this one.

You and me both. I'm not sure how to put together mine either.
Still need some more shots and hopefully weather will cooperate on Monday.
Fingers crossed.

Marj, it's nothing to write home about. Just trying to figure out how to say what I'm thinking with what I've shot.

I'll need it too.
I'll upload something even if it's me just staring at the camera. :O)
