UWOL 55 PART 2 - Tales of wonders and woes

As always, interaction between the players is encouraged.
The good, the bad, the ugly... What goes great, what did not go as planned, and everything in between, about the making of your UWOL55 -part 2 films.

Don't be afraid to ask if you have any questions.

And pay special attention to rule 11: Have fun!

Re: UWOL 55 PART 2 - Tales of wonders and woes

As this round started I got the call for my shoulder surgery, Been waiting sense November, glad to have it done. It truly has put a game changer on my filming. I got a new Elderbrock back pack that can carry all my camera gear and has a sheath for my Vinton on steel gitzo legs. So going exploring as planned is out of the question. Just the camera rig is 22 pounds, then all the other stuff and tripod makes it about a 50 lb. load. Can't carry that on my shoulder for some time, start therapy in a week.
I came up with a new plan of attack. Of course we have had typical prairie winds to battle and they have been pretty unrelenting. I do have about 45 seconds of decent footage.
Glad there is a month more!
BOY AM I OUT OF PRACTICE.

Hope everyone is having fun!

That's a massive setup, Dale! Good to hear the surgery is done.
No filming here yet, but I guess the young one has some ideas for her entry.

Still working on an idea.
Was hoping to be cleared from my surgery but looks like another month. Really want to incorporate Neowise in the film somehow.

Was out exploring a new place together with Irmelinn yesterday. Hopefully she can use some of the footage for her entry. Prehistoric idea.

Re: UWOL 55 PART 2 - Tales of wonders and woes

Glad your shoulder is on the mend, Dale.

We spent 4 1/2 month under quarantine here before it was lifted in most of the country, but a lot of places have still been closed off. (Most small villages here have closed off access to themselves. One small community has closed off visitor access by train to Machu Picchu -- which still remains closed anyway -- using machetes to stop supply trains and search them for outsiders!)

There is a possibility that we will go back into quarantine soon, but it's all unclear what will happen right now. We should know more in the coming days.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a little more opening up. I'd been planning to get back into the jungle around Machu Picchu and do some real exploring for some Inca sites that possibly haven't been seen in a few hundred years. I was also hoping to film some, but I don't know if that opportunity is going to come before the end of the current UWOL Challenge.

That's a very long time under quarantine, Phil! Hope you and your family are all well.
Fingers crossed for the situation will improve in your area too. You have a fantastic location to explore.

Re: UWOL 55 PART 2 - Tales of wonders and woes

Thanks, Trond. Doing fine here except for the LONG lockdown. I hope you and your family are all doing well, too.

Exploring really is my occupation now. One good thing about the quarantine is that is allowed me a LOT of time to do academic research. There has been a rumor of one more "lost" city in the mountains and I've managed to uncover a few clues about where it might possibly be in an area including a big clue from one person who claims to know where it is. (He's the world's leading authority on the area, but is a little eccentric at times.)

I've been dying to get back to the jungle since I discovered the place that he says is near the ruins. Of course, I'll probably only find nothing more than snakes and a few small ruins, but all the puzzle pieces seem to point to one place that hasn't been explored before. If I could find something, it would sure be a pretty cool video under the topic!

Would be awesome if you find that ancient city! Watch out for the snakes :)

Re: UWOL 55 PART 2 - Tales of wonders and woes

Right, the talent ,well mammals in this case, footage now in the can

Script partly written.

To do, more establishing and link clips and some time lapse.

No doubt over the next couple of weeks something else will appear in the my viewfinder and a total rehash will happen.

Hope you are all managing to get some footage for an entry.
