YouTube Message from Nashville

Yesterday I checked our YouTube Inbox and there was a message from a guy in Nashville. He had some constructive criticism about our "Homemade Steadycam" video. I thought I would share:

Hey guys, I've only seen one of your videos so far...well, I'm a 62 year old granddad and only have so much time to spend on YouTube.... Anyway, as an old pro musician/entertainer/producer et al, I want to compliment you on your work, your creativity and mostly....your style. You guys are very entertaining and I look forward to watching more of your productions.

The video I saw was your steady-cam project...something I'll probably work on a different design for my own hi-def videoing. Here's my constructive criticism... I have moderate hearing loss in the high frequency range and have trouble understanding voices that aren't clean and clear. I had trouble understanding what you guys were saying...for a couple of reasons. One, you could stand to enunciate your speech more distinctly, but the second point would help even more....GET A COUPLE OF MICROPHONES ON BOOMS (OUT OF THE FRAME) UP ABOVE YOUR HEADS AND AS CLOSE TO YOU AS POSSIBLE. That would improve the sound situation a thousand percent. Even cheap mics up close would be better than the camcorder mic at the distance you were working on the video I saw.

That's my 2 cents. If you've already worked out your audio bugs, please disregard my tip. And keep up the good work fellas!

Elephant Seals

So here is some footage I shot of some elephant seals just north of Cambria, CA. They gather here every year to molt their skin. And they smell terrible. I used my new Canon Rebel T2i with the 18-55mm kit lens.




We're going to use this camera to shoot some new projects. A new 55-250mm Canon lens just came in today, so I'll be posting some test footage soon.

Back In The Saddle

We're back after a little hiatus, with new projects, beer, and a new human.  That's right, Kevin and his lovely wife Katie are expecting a girl in August!  Can you believe it?  We'll be posting some short stuff soon and are working on a special project for the summer.  In the meantime, get into a comfortable position wherever you're reading this, have a beer, or a shot, or a doob, or some keyboard cleaner - and take a long, hard look at the picture attached to this post (you can click on the pic).  You'll thank me.
