I was having a moan about an 80min continuous roll digital feature called ROAD I shot back in 2000. I just found a news item shot about it. See if you can tell just how unhappy I was. They used footage from the first run, so its not art (yes I know the verticals.) By the third run it was looking a lot better and I?d had a tantrum at the ?actors? about learning the few key cue lines they had so the end product was as good as it was ever going to be...

Moan = complain. I can?t remember what topic it was under but I was running over some of the problems I had on that shoot? oh boy did I have problems on that shoot! 6 years latter I?m still mad over it? let it go Stephen, let it go.
The reporter was very kind to me and as a result of the positive press I got lots of paid work. So it wasn?t all bad.

well from the footage you cant tell what issues you had. the story was not written well but its cool they interviewed you and its weird to see someone operating goofy! :P i tried goofy once and it felt like i was learing to walk all over again... weird..

digress..

anytime i see some steadi in action i enjoy it so i enjoyed your fame.. man you look differrent from then and now in your avatar! :ph34r:

oh no.. i could not tell you were unhappy....

What's weird about "Goofy" ???? :blink: :blink:

I do that all the time, unless I get hindered by obstacles that force me to go Regular, now that feels weird! ;) :D

I hadn?t thought about it before but I surf goofy too. :D

It?s the huge black headphones that make me look different in the low res avatar, but I like the photo.

I was shooting Rugby. Hard work. You tend to fly the rig in front to the side you are running. So if you are running to the right you go goofy, to the left regular, just so long as you keep the rig away from those crazy flying feet :) .
