Sheesh, Gibbons, puffins, yellow lady's slippers... The only thing I have so far is a mushroom! I guess I better get out my Iowa maps and start looking for something wild! :)

Grant: It's done, I've told some of my puffins to go to Lundy :)
Gabriel: The puffins are sea birds living most of theire lives out in the open sea and they are cute (Rick).
I thought "The wild" would be an easy theme, but I've been high and low, trying to capture something wild. Today I've been on a 4 hours mountainhike and it gave me 7 min on tape, it's all wild :)
I agree with you Mat, I'm looking forward to see everybodys entry.

Was to Trillemarka this weekend, wrote a manuscript before I left what to shoot. This was a new experience, to go to a place where I never been before with a manuscript what to film!
Well, all did going very well, managed to shoot almost everything on my list :-)

Attached a picture of the opening scene for my film "Wilderness", shoot 04:30 am on Saturday morning.

Thats a cool sounding bird Geir! thanks for the description!

*sobering* You guys all have beautiful shots! Just kidding.. Well, you do all have nice scenery, and I have nothing -- yet. :D

I still have a week at least... Maybe I'll be able to get something in.

Last time I did not even shoot until the last day before the deadline! But then I got the nice time extension due to the up-loader. - Hey Mat, is there by any-chance something wrong with the server? lol!

Happy Mothers day to the moms out there!

~Gabriel

Glad to hear you guys are getting on ok.

Had everything planned for a full day's shoot yesterday in three locations, batteries charged, tapes labelled etc. It rained, hard, pretty much all day :(

Time for the backup plan methinks !!!!!

Trillemarka

Great picture Per Johan.
As always I'm looking forward to see your work.
Jib, now that's something worth waiting for :)

I did also a manuscript for uwol#3, but I had to change it a bit "on the road". I've been on mountains, on the shore and out on a boat-trip.
The trip on the boat was the most stunning, but still the hardest challenge.
It's not easy to get steady pictures with the boat swinging on the waves.
My tripod was useless of cause, so most of my 2 hours handheld shooting I can't use for uwol#3. Never the less I think I've got enough on tape for my 3 min of the wild, but as it is I might take a last trip to Runde for more close-ups.

Finished

That's that, my entry is finished and uploading as I type this. Why so early? My darn job got in that way again I have to leave town this afternoon and will be gone for the week. I don't think I'll have internet access where I'm headed but you never know. So to be on the safe side I'm sending the film now. I wish I had more time to tidy up some of the cuts etc but I'm out of time.

Good luck everyone.....Brian

PS: Snow, Snow and more Snow....sorry

still shooting

Good evening,

I finished my uwol with my gl2 and was dead pleased with it. then came compression problems, 60interlaced and 4:3. I gave up trying to get it right.

I got my xl2 back and wrote a new script. I have got some decent footage. I have several other shots to complete yet this week..
Here are a couple grabs from this week.

Some fine pictures there, Dale.
I uploaded my file yesterday, my plan was to get some more closeups, but as my job is giving me some extra tasks for our national holiday (17th may), I've got no sparetime left. Have a nice go with your xl2.

You guys are lucky to have some/most of it completed. As of now, I still have nothing to use for uwol3. Got some on tape earlier, but that idea went straight to the trash again.

Hopefully I will have time to make something the next few days.
(that also includes coming up with a new idea, haha)
