Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

This is truly a interesting one now, i just seem to have lost out on all ideas :)

Currently a blank slate

let me see if i can think of a executable idea, ( Shark tank Ohh No)

Man as i typed this i just got a idea for the Title :)

Let me see how to at least execute this, if title is done then i can think further once the pace is set.

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Suddenly I got a cool idea in an exotic (for me) location.
But battled with overheating camera.
Off to square one.

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

The results of my experiments have been quite disappointing. It is a signal to noise ratio problem. The ambient noise in the environment I need to work in is enough to swamp the sensor at only a third the distance I require. No amount of boosting the signal will overcome that. I am sure I can eventually solve the problem (with a better sensor) but can’t do it before the deadline. Now I need to think of another video to shoot…

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Nice to ser some of you have ideas to work on.
I myself also got an idea, but haven't got time for any shooting yet.
It so happens I came across an old american poet.
If time let me, it's my job to make something out of it.
Wish you all, best of luck.

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

The biggest problem for everyone is always the weather. Seems like the south of England is being battered with torrential rain at the moment. Hope things will change for the better for all of you in the next week!

Thankfully temperatures round here have risen quite dramatically since the beginning of the month. (Our maximum daily temperature is now around 25 deg. C - up from 15 deg. C.)

I did quite a bit of thinking and planning around my story before I started filming yesterday. I have most of my footage now - even found some unexpected surprises along the way. Just need one or two important critters to show up and then I can piece it together.

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Finally got a couple shots for my idea.
Need a lot more to make a film though. Still plenty of time to get them if I can find the right spots to film

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Well, I can report that at the end of last week the temperatures dropped to a more normal 30º, and nights down to 15º so at least that is a relief in all senses of the word.

Mike, As I work on mainly an iMac, and backup a MacBook Pro, liquid cooling is not a solution I'd like to try, although I have resorted to throwing a bucket of water over my badly performing Renault car electronics a few times (Evil Grin)

On the woes side, we seem to be having a lot of power cuts (2-3 per day) and one or more of them seems to have caused a problem with my work hard drive.

Still - I managed to get most of my main footage filmed over the weekend and today, so although I still need some B roll to cover, have worked out a draft VO story today!

Good luck and follow Rule 11 where possible to all!

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Ugh, trying to figure out how to transition from first golden light with ground fog to sunny later morning and have it flow.

Need a transition shot in between but the weather is going to be bad until possibly Monday. :(

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

Things are not looking too good so far. I think I feel a shark nibbling on my toes!

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

I have a few clips from my one outing - intended more but weather didn't comply. Might just make a shorter entry with what I have, there's some nice colours in some of the shots. Won't be anywhere near what I intended, but my original plans rarely work out. There might still be some vague connection to the theme.

Re: UWOL 35 - Tales of wonders and woes

I got some footage yesterday for an entry of sorts...
I should be able to edit something by the end of the day.
It'll keep me out of the tank.
