I have been asked by a number of deeply disturbed people to do a video blog. So I am going to give it a trial run during my 3 or so weeks in the US.
Tomorrow I leave for LA, then hire a car and drive to Vegas for NAB. I will be at the MGM Grand so if any of you generous souls want to contribute a line of credit there for me I would be very grateful!
I am going to be wandering around mostly for the first 2 days. I will be at the Zacuto stand between 2 and 4pm on Monday and at the B&H stand on Tuesday at the same time with the Letus Direct fellas.
I am also going to go to the B-Roll, Dvinfo, Dvxuser drinks on Monday. Dinner with Zacuto Tuesday…
Wednesday I am planning on driving up to Rhyolite ghost town in Nevada for some filming. I may have space in the car if anyone fancies a jaunt up there.
Thursday I film for Mitcorp and Friday I fly to Austin Texas.
Whilst in Austin I will be staying at the Omnia Hotel and I will be speaking at the Re:Frame event at the Alamo drafthouse, I am there for about 6 nights. the first three are not really for work. A bit of filming, meeting up with some people etc…
After that I head to Kauai for a week long recce for a job then I move back to LA for 3 days of relaxation/ driving/ filming in interesting places and then the Monday just before I fly home I will have a couple of meetings.
So it’s pretty busy and it could be interesting. So I will try and do a daily blog talking about what I have seen, some days there will be just a webcam piece to camera, other days there will be more interesting stuff. i am taking my little Xacti with me so shoot bits and pieces quickly and easily.
I will have a US cell number when I am over there. I won’t get it until I arrive in the US, but when I get it I will post it on this page. But of course email is still the best way to reach me.
One last thing, whilst I am away I will have my 1 millionth web hit on my site. Quite a milestone in just over 2 years, mostly in the past year. Wonder how I can find out who that person is and maybe give them an EX1 or something 😉
