UWOL 61 - 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 UWOL61 films.

Remember the ultimate goal and purpose of UWOL:
To push your own limits, to improve your own skills as film makers.
And of course to have fun at the same time.

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

Pay special attention to rule 11: Have fun!

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

Happy new film year! Hope 2022 will be the year when everyone find that new editing skill, the new camera angle, the new creative ideas... and much more.

How is everyone doing? Hope you have found your idea by now, and maybe even filmed a little too.

I have got some shots last weekend, but still need more to get the story I was looking for.

Good luck, all of you!

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

Weather and COVID is keeping me from getting out. The rainy season has hit and we have thunderstorms every day making it difficult to go out far when you’re on foot. Got some good ideas, but need a break in the rather to get out. Also, COVID is exploding here so taking public transportation is scary to get out of town.

Still plenty of time, though…

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

Stay safe, Phil! Looks like covid is on the rise everywhere now. We set new daily records every so often.

After I was out filming, winter took a wrong turn somewhere, and fall came back. Wondering how to film the remaining shots of my entry.
An extreme weather system is hitting us today and tomorrow. The weather guys call it an atmospheric river or waterfall. Never experienced that before.

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

I heard that term recently ("atmospheric river") on the news from the US, but had never heard it before!

We're up to 31.1% positivity rate of testing here in Cusco and it's rising extremely fast each day. Sadly, we're still doing much better than Texas at (35.6%) where I lived most of my life. Like most places around the world, almost everyone in the hospitals in Peru are unvaccinated.

The weather has finally turned better the past few days, but I'm nervous about getting on public transportation to get out of town as COVID is almost certainly present. Thank goodness I now have three vaccine doses which should keep me relatively safe for awhile.

I hope you and everyone else are staying safe and well during these challenging times.

Phil

I think the last thing any of us shoud feel is obliged to film something under these circumstances. For myself, what with COVID, the weather and a 6 week shoot on the horizon with more prep than I had anticipated, I doubt I’ll be submitting. Haven’t given up hope just yet and I do plan on filming for this on the weekend but then there’s reality.

Atmospheric river is a term thats now become common place where I live. Vancouver has had them and nearby has had extreme flooding. On the other hand, about a week ago we had a lot of snow, which had stayed on the ground for at least a week. This is rare for Vancouver, our weather is normally an exception to the typical Canadian winter.

Take care all.

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

You said it, Jase. The most important will always be your health. No need to risk any covid infection just to make a film. There will always be more chances.

I'll try to edit what footage I have during the next week, and see if I can make anything out of it. If not... better luck next time.

Here in Norway the health authorities are talking about a massive covid wave the next couple months. We'll see what happens.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Re: UWOL 61 - Tales of wonders and woes

Hi and a happy new year to you all.

Phil:
I really hope you get the chance to make a video and that covid is soon a thing of the past.

Here at my village, the weather conditions have been changing rapidly.
One day snow and the next day rain and of course storm.
It's difficult to plan video recording, but I think I have a concept that I have to try out.
The theme of my video will be about the details of planning a nature video,
all those things that go wrong and that one forgets to check out.
It's so depressing to be out in the bush and then the battery is empty,
the water drop on the lens that you forgot to wipe away, etc.
Well, in any case, I'll try this angle on my video.

Mick:
Congratulations on a new drone, hope it works well and that you get the hang of it.
I think it will add a whole new dimension to your videos.

Stay safe.

It's really strange for me to hear you call anything in your country 'bush' - for me it conjures up images of heat and dry riverbeds, gum trees & the sound of the crow. I guess every country has it's 'bush' they're just not all the same
