Wow. I need an follow-focus lens. I didn’t do too badly, but some of these shots I’m going to have to pull the independent filmmaker routine of “it’s an… artistic decision.” Yeah, that’ll sell it.

Well folks, a little silence, a little delay, and we are finally here.

Today we will start filming a short silent comedy to be known as Rock and a Hot Date. Looking forward to my director’s debut in regards to a new concept, DSLR Canon 5D Mark II camera, and with a little bit of luck, and entertaining short which I will use Premiere CS6 to edit.

I will be filming with my children, Dave Clegg, and Meagan Mead. Let’s see how much move magic I still have in me!

More posts, pictures from production, and stories including the Sugar Glass burning that we will make work one way or another.
