It’s been a while

I haven’t posted anything in a while and that’s the problem. Work right now is basically dead. I assume that it is because it’s the beginning of the year and people are getting budgets into order and seeing what they can do this upcoming year. I have been managing to stay afloat by taking sideline small gigs. It isn’t a fun way to work but it is necessary sometimes.

Some good news is that a video I have been working on was approved so as soon as it goes up on their site you will get to see it. I have also been approved to finish the Explore Project video. The goal is to have it finished in two weeks. I have also started doing some live sound mixing again which is always fun for me. And finally some potential good news (although it isn’t yet). If the details work out my company (ThunderFish), and Five Sharp will be working together. This is potential for us to get video work and them to get the web work that fuze group did but stopped doing when we decided to focus on video and photo. I know that this news may be preemptive but it is still the possibility that brings me hope (and me being able to back link to another site ;-D).

Klamath Explore Project

The Klamath Explore Project is the second in a series of adventure videos where the guys from Tahoe SUP take to the water to explore places not normally seen by people. Thunderfish, my company, filmed this project and the second episode was a little bit delayed in the start of post production because of a lack of  post-filming interview footage that we just couldn’t get because of the schedules of the athletes in the film. Luckily, near the end of January, Ben North and Enoch Kim were able to get up to Tahoe and finish this thing out so I could get started on the main edit and finish the trailer. The trailer is to be released soon and as soon as it does it will end up here.

This project was definitely more interesting than the previous episode filmed around Catalina. First off, we had a better grasp on exactly what we wanted to achieve with this documentary and because of that we where able to focus on getting what was needed. We teamed up with the Klamath River Keepers in order to properly see the entirety of the river from as far up as Orleans, CA down to the mouth of the river that dumps into the Pacific. The secondary purpose of this documentary was to show how damns are so detrimental to a river, not only because it degrades water quality but also because it keeps the salmon that have swam up stream for centuries to spawn from being able to do their thing.

The rough cut is finished and I look forward to presenting the trailer and the full length in the near futre.
