Are any of our FB friends into modern dance? Thinking of a future project that would include a script idea that could be interpreted using dance instead of dialog. The set(s) would be real world locations that the dancers could embody to fit the narrative. If you know someone who might be interested in collaborating on a project like this, please pass this post along. Thank you. Cheers! -A ... See MoreSee Less

Many of you have likely not seen this "Psychogenic Fugue" piece done in partnership with Squarespace. All I could find now was the trailer. Unfortunately it looks like the website (www.playinglynch.com/) is now password protected.... but trust me, John Malkovich does a masterful job with each of the characters depicted in the trailer. Cameron this is the piece I mentioned to you awhile back, not sure if you had seen it yet. Enjoy! -A

Just an observation, every time I see footage or photos of someone using a gimbal, the camera is at their belly. I call it "Belly-Cam". If you are using a Ronin or similar gimbal, try flipping it over (camera on top/handles below)... not only is it easier to handle, the shots will be more at eye level. Plus the end result just looks better and more natural... So in closing, Just Say No to BELLY-CAM. ... See MoreSee Less
