triumphant footage of actual water

As some of you may know, I recently purchased a video camera.  I also got a tripod.  I plan on making a movie.  About fishing.  In Indiana.  For smallmouth.  Bass. 

 

Yeah, I know, it's going to be pretty sweet.  I also realize that I don't know much about making movies.  But I've been told that I have a "good eye" (thanks mom!).  So that's something.  I'll be posting updates on the progress until it's done.  I'm going to make a DVD and sell it to ESPN.  Or at least Verses.  Mike Iaconelli will endorse it I'm sure.

 

This is, then, my first update.  I went out the other day and got actual footage of water.  Still just practice, but now all I need are some fish.  One thing I particularly like is how tumbling water looks on the DVX100B (my camera).  24p (film-like frame rate) is what's giving it that look, I think.  R.A. Beattie's Nervous Water trailer has a great shot of white water in it.  Wonder if he shoots with 24p?

 

Check out the update here.  

 

Also, as it was 56 degrees here today, I went fishing.  I got skunked.  But I did see this creepy ass thing way back in the woods lording over a productive run.
