Stupid character limit... what I was saying is: The VideoMics are great mics if you're going to have something attached to the camera (I always prefer to bring a friend and use a boom). With the Magic Lantern firmware, you might need to tinker with the settings slightly to adjust for the manual audio controls, but it's a solid mic and the shockmount is well built. It does cut out a lot of the camera noise and background noise (like wind, roadnoise, etc). If you're going to go with a mounted microphone on the camera, I can definitely recommend the Rode mics.
Web series is going good. I'm trying to get on my people as much as I can here from El Paso until I get back to Austin. It's hard to be a hardass when you're 500 miles away. Our goal is to get Ep. 2 done by next weekend. And I'm trying my best to go by that deadline. As far as where things are headed, let's just say they go into sci-fi territory here, and crime drama there.
Mr. PV Brian! Glad to see a reunion of FE with the old chums back together. Just came by to show you my new web series premiere. We're hoping to spread it to the Spillios to help get some views. Hope you like it, and if you do, let somebody know!
It is done, my friend. Thanks for the advice. For those of you out there who don't know what this is, this is the link to the blog about my first short film "Soliloquy" debuting off USTREAM tomorrow and Sunday at 7:30 Central.
