Hi all, even if this room at wheaton laboratories is a virtual one, I though it will interest you to get some news and special behind the scenes of what's cooking on my editing bench. And just so you know, excuse my french, but i'll try to be as visual as possible !


I'm just back from Voices where i had some lovely time with Jocelyn and Paul, and it was also time to shoot some extra footage for the soon to be released 3 dvd set on earthworks. Here is what is on my bench today


Paul is ready to try anything to get you the best footage possible


We've got some finger ballet of an improvised crew


And surprise surprise, we had some nice visit !

All for tonight, until next time ....

If those three got a little closer together, their shadow could attack using the word NI!

First of all,I must say that I had way too much fun getting to hang out with the permies crew for a day and it is a memory I will always treasure!
I also enjoyed the fact that Paul likes having fun even when the camera is not rolling....I think he was REALLY enjoying the fuzzy microphone in this photo..(maybe a little too much..hehe :-b)..

Kris cam time!!..This guy shows up with a drone...the amazing thing was that he built it himself...After chatting with him for a while I found out that he is really cool guy and knowledgeable about permaculture as well....the mid day winds were too dangerous for drone flying so Kris waited patiently all day for his chance to fly....here is a shot of kris the drone pilot getting ready for liftoff!

These photos make it look so easy.

Filming geoff lawton is like trying to take a photo of a toddler, he's liable to turn his back to the camera at any time or suddenly start walking in any direction on a whim.

Then, trying to position the microphone somewhere in front of these guys (either from above or from below, without getting in the frame of the camera, and without casting a shadow on anyone, while chasing them around the property, on which I could be standing anywhere between 4 feet higher or lower than the guys chatting about the landscape) was no walk in the park, to say the least, but I think we all had a blast that day.

I know I'd do it again.

And Bart, so great to meet you and work with you, during and after the conference.

Looks great Bart, looking forward to see everything come together into a visual/educational masterpiece. Thank you again for the opportunity to come out and fly a little, crash and little, and above all get some great knowledge and insight from some great folks who love permaculture

I want to thank Bart for inviting me to share my experience at sky mountain!
And also Paul and Jocelyn for welcoming a permies"newbie"to stay at the house with open arms...you guys are awesome.
I am almost out of my version of behind the scenes stuff...hope you don't mind me indulging in just one more story and a video.
It was inspiring watching the video making process at sky mountain, then I got this idea and had to try it,I wanted to make a video of the path that a drop of water would take from the road and through the entire earthworks, but all I had was my cellphone and the first attempt came out really shaky and my chubby shadow was getting in the way.
I remembered a horror film I saw years ago called The Evil Dead....the camera in this film represented the eyes of the monster as it float through the landscape and home in on its next victom. ..it was really cool and even cooler when I saw a behind the scenes film on how it was done and how it"low tech "it was.


So On my next attempt I taped my cellphone to the end of one of Alden's rakes to provide the mass needed to stabilize the camera and maybe create a floating effect.....
Well the results were definitely a huge improvement over the first try...but still...very amateur. ..lol and may make you a little seasick if you decide to watch....especially when I try to create a floating effect in the pond area...then I continue on pretending I am running Kris Cram's drone and get carried away lol
This is only half of the video.
It does show the earthworks in very good detail though...

Burra was able to imbed the video for me in the next post,
Enjoy the "EVIL GARDEN TOOL CAM" :-b

That is super cool, but the spinning thing made me dizzy! Maybe slow that down a little in the DVD. . .
