Here is a picture a mate of mine took whilst shooting the 8 hour long rehearsals for this 1 hour long hair gig i did recently. (Didn't even get a break or fed during the rehearsals :blink: )
Turned out pretty cool so I thought I might share.

Very cool, love that motion blur feel. I wanted to contribute a similar shot, just one of many running shots I did this day... you'll barely be able to make out my subject up the hill, almost on right edge of frame, just above the equator.

Hi Ryan
If they did that to me it would be reflected in my invoice. I had a recent job where a company asked me to work from 9am to 2am Fine but from 9am to 1pm (4 hours) then a 8 hour break then 9pm to 1am (4 hours) thats an 8 hour day right NOT.At no time did they tell me about the break until I got to set .There for I charged them accordingly.
Here is a still I use as a screen saver looks great Blurrrrred still.

I was the "truck grille POV", pushing in on the actor's face that was just about to be creamed.

I feel left out. I have lots (gigs and gigs) of pictures of myself but not one that's blurry. How does one go about getting a blurry picture?

Apparently, rather than get some sleep before I'm back on set tomorrow, I thought this would be a better use of my time. Photoshop has some nifty filters and effects you can apply, if you know how to create layer masks.

Even added some bling.

Created a second layer, created a layer mask, painted the area around you black on the mask (to leave you in but remove the lower layer). On the lower layer, selected everything and used Filters -> Blur -> Motion blur. Increased the motion blur level to like 4 I think, and changed the angle to match your tilt. After that, on the lower layer, I went to Filters -> Render -> Lens Flare, changed setting to movie primes, upped the numbers and placed it behind the Moviecam logo.

Only thing that took me a while was creating the mask.

Anyone else got pictures they want blurrified?
