Well this weekend was kind of mellow. Friday Shannie and I saw Inglorious Bastards which was pretty damn cool. Clever dialog and overall a pretty fun movie. The whole cast was excellent and of course being a Tarentino film, plenty of memorable moments I am sure I will be quoting for while. lol…
Outside of that, just writing away on the BuRN Screenplay. I really like what I have so far…Hopefull this week will get me pretty close to finishing it.
Yesterday I took some time and installed the new upgrades for my RedRock system. The New M2 Encore electronics, The Micro X Encore Flip Module, and the newly released Live Lens to control the Aperture on my Canon “L” lenses. The Micro X was a lot bigger than the old one so I had to take the whole rig apart and take out the Rod shims to lower the M2 housing, but after I got it all squared away, it works really well.
Much better light sensitivity now, and edge to edge sharpness. It was a significant improvement over the old system. The live lens works great, I can now stop down the lenses with the electronic mount to reduce DOF…and of course I like having a rechargeable battery in the M2 Encore so I don’t have to take the whole thing apart just to swap out the battery. A much needed addition.
So the rig is all put back together and ready to rock and roll. Tim sent me over a pretty cool script for a short film yesturday. If we have some time after I get the screenplay done for BuRN, I offered to shoot it with him. I would like to test out the new Optics as well on the rig, so this might be a really cool short film to shoot with it.
So anyway…Another Monday plugging away on EQ2. Almost done with this expansion…yyeeayyy…lol. Guess I should get back to it. Hope you all are having a great day.
