Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

Fluid ideas can dry up and turn into something great, Gordon.

For once I'm just a sidekick. My stepdaughter is in charge, and she has a good idea. Hopefully she/we can film it over the next couple weekends. Didn't find the main characters while we were out last weekend.

Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

Right, think I am on course?

Started of off in one direction but a chance conversation sent me off in another. Although wildlife based I'm heading off into some uncharted waters, filmmaking and main subject wise that is.

Hopefully I can put enough spin on the theme title to pull it altogether.

Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

Uncharted waters sounds interesting and a good chance to push your own limits.
Go for it! Looking forward to see what you come up with, Mick.

My young one has caught some bug, so filming plans for the next few days, are more or less delayed. Very typical when we for once have days off work/ school and sunshine forecasted at the same time.
Still plenty time until deadline, so she will probably make it anyway.

Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

My plan to film about how changes in the rainforest are effecting "families" kind of fell through when I spent a week along the Amazon River mostly sick!

I did do some drone work over some rainforest that had been burned and cut, but had to leave a little early as someone was shooting! I'm not sure if they were aiming at me, but I didn't want to find out. I think it might be too much as I was planning to do some filming among illegal gold mines in the southern Peruvian rainforest.

If everything works out, I'm flying to Lima to buy a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera this weekend and will do some filming in the mountains above Cusco when I get back. There are several resident families who live relatively isolated in the high Andes up there so I've got some ideas. It's the rainy season so rain and snow in the high mountains makes things a little more difficult.

Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

I tried to get one subject and managed to film some drone shots of it but later got back to the work at hand and have not been on track to film for the challenge for some time , the rains and cyclone showers in between didnt help as none of the roads were accessable , the rains have stopped and i will again give it a try lets see.

Re: UWOL 53 - Tales of wonders and woes

Drone filming can give many opportunities to get closer to your subjects.
The downside is that many birds attack the drone because they either hate the sound of the drone, or see it as an intruder into their territory. Can be fatal for both parties. Had some close calls myself, so I try to be careful if I see birds in the area.

Trond that's the problem with a lot of my ideas. I'm hoping more for it to solidify.
