Dear colleagues,

As I got back to the hotel last night from NAB I bumped into a young fellow in the elevator with a Skycam shirt and ESPN pass... turns out he was on the crew setting up Skycam for boxing tonight from Caesars, on at 7 or so EST... small world!

Anyway, Ruben Sluijter's new CG video: "Skycam and the World of Tomorrow" is up on www.garrettcam.com for your enjoyment. Ruben is amazing. (If only I could have done the real thing without wires!)

Ruben and Steve and Kevin and Jim, thanks for a great job in the Tiffen booth all week!

best regards, Garrett Brown

I hope to be the very first Mole Cam operator in the world...
I also hope to use it in the snow

Hi Garrett / Ruben

Good to see you again and congratulations on 30 years - and thank you once again for my career and family...(Kelly and Rosie say Hi)

Ruben - stunning again, you constantly amaze me, it took a while to download but it was worth it.
keep up the great work - what next?

Great party as well, good to see everyone happy and together, very nice. + Mike on the segway.

Anyway, thanks and take care.

Hope to see you soon
All the best

Guys, thanks again for the compliments...just wish I had more resources to make it even better...
Still not 100% the way I imagined it but time constraints can be a bitch (got this stupid day job lugging the heavy piece of metal around on sets)
As for what's next...no idea, suggestions are still welcome
NAB was a blast, let's do it again real soon at my place...everyone's invited!

Peace, Ruben "Enjoying every second of his jetlag" Sluijter
