Ha! I'll be there with a pretty big chunk of the team April 14-18 for NAB. If you can tweak the dates at all Wheat, NAB is stinkin' incredible. Hands-on with every camera out there, grip and dolly and audio and any type for production and/or broadcast gear you could think of and a lot of seminars/education to boot.
As far as shooting, nothing solid yet. We're talking about shooting something, but at the same time it's a nice break to be with the guys out of town having fun in the evenings instead of "work". Don't get me wrong, shooting is fun too, but the extra-curricular stuff goes a long way, you know?
I haven't forgotten! My schedule is different, every week, so I had to wait until today to see if I'm available. We should be able to do something short. Here's my schedule:
Monday - off
Tuesday- off, I just need a window to show my short, BUG COMPLEX at 7:30pm.
Wednesday - work morning till about 3 or 4pm
Thursday - work morning till about 3 or 4pm
Friday - Attending Spring Flicks, from 6pm-11pm. (I have 3 films entered.)
Saturday- work morning till about 3 or 4pm, Spring Flicks from 6pm-11pm
Sunday - Spring Flicks, 6pm-11pm
Barring any work pop-ups, we should be able to get together Tues and Wed/Thurs nights. You can also come to Spring Flicks, if you want.
I've been a busy filmmaker. Just finished a 48, last weekend. You know - giant bugs and crap.
Cool, Arch. Keep following this thread for details. BTW, I just checked out your other thread - about trying to find filmmaking collaborators. There are a lot of people in Las Vegas. I'm on 6 or 7 Facebook groups and there are so many people to hook up with. Nevada Film Group has over 600 members on just that one.
Anyway, what's your background? Student, Indie producer, A/V tech or production company dude?
Ha ha ha! Hi, Al...., I mean "Arch!" Well, you should get together with Wheatgrinder and I. I really do want to work with you. I'm also going to buy Season 2 of WALKING DEAD and make you watch at least the fast-forward version!
I am a lone wolf, much of the time. I was going to make the 48 Hour Film with just Sheila, but then Rusty asked, followed by Chet, then Suzzanne. It ended up being a great experience. I'm aware that if we shoot with your DSLR, I can't edit it, until I convert it. Me and being stuck with 2007 technology. I definitely want to work with you, though!
