was doing a shot in this real windy valley
things are going perfect
got some grips with 4x doubles
a big long gust of wind blew thru
in the middle of the 2 actors dialogue
all the sudden my g-50 arm starts singing to us
like a high not on a organ
at the end of the shot
one of the actors starts cracking up
going ok who was whistling
i go i think it was my arm
stepped back out into the wind
and sure enough it was the honeycombs on the arm
put a little tape on the openings
and we were back into action

Mark-

This is fantastic news!

Garrett and I (Tony Sacksteder) specifically designed the G50 extrusions to resonate at frequency ratios of 10:12:15, corresponding to a C minor, while the G70 is optimized for a major 7th (8:10:12:15).

Please attempt to reproduce at your earliest convenience or send audio track from the shoot, as we have been unable to reliably document this feature to validate the design.

Tuning is critical, as our research indicates that a properly formed standing wave produces a noticeable anti-gravity effect and will actually allow the G50 to lift additional payload on windy days.

Aloha Morgan,

I know you are going to find this odd, but I had an experience with my Ultra 2 sled that left us to wonder. Was shooting Ozzie when just about the time Zach started his guitar solo, my sled started to hum "Crazy Train!" Now I must admit there was alot of smoke in the air and a few really attractive topless, tattooed creatures with less than a full grill of teeth that were also humming. Weird. And now I have a sled in rehab.

Your 'short' looks great. Looked to be inspired by a great actor you met at the Workshop.
