Lalo,

I sincerely apologize for doubting you on the validity of the picture.
What was plugged into the right side of the light socket near the pull-chain?

Just so everybody knows, I'm not knocking the guy shooting the video or questioning the quality of his work. I'm merely laughing at the electrical-tape-light-socket-pull-chain setup of his gear.

For all I know, this guy produces video with the same high quality of others on this board.

Okay, my conscience is clear...and I think I've removed myself from any legal proceedings brought against this forum by the man in the photos. But I'm no lawyer.

update, met with the b/g and he said he was embarassed to send the video to his family that couldn't make the wedding so he asked if I could re-edit the video. He was given all the raw footage. I let him know that I could but I can only make it look so good that it actually starts with good shooting. We're supposed to meet up in Jan. to discuss the details.

just remember you're going to need a custom pull chain retrofit/plug in for your NLE and factor that into the cost <wink>!

Hmm, Dennis, innovative design, how is it for noise reduction??

I have a box of chains in my garage! But that's another story for another time...

Jeez Louise, this is some funny stuff! The pull-chain light is almost surreal!

Sony Hollywood! :D

Hey though, if the guy can make a living working this way, then more power to him. At $300 per wedding shoot, it's not as if he's stealing all of the good clients out from under you.

Now, if you start hearing from potential new clients things like "But Bobby Bodunk said he'd do it for only $300," then you might want to start getting worried. Until that time, this guy remains one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

I think there is still some room for improvement.

That would be a great addition for candid camera shots, nobody will ever notice you are there. :)
