Nothing beats working when you are ill. I had to enjoy the photos I took after the fact. Spent a couple days here toiling on a segment for a PBS documentary commemorating the 100th anniversary of the National Park system. The Fall leaves were gorgeous and the weather was kind to us.
At long last, my friends Greg Kwedar and Clint Bently finally got to pull the trigger on their passion project. Using the badlands outside of Deming, NM as a backdrop, we told the tale of three Border Patrol officers having a very bad day. Regular temps over a 100 degrees daily.
First time to visit Costa Rica for the documentary Dealt. What a beautiful place! Pura Vida (pure life) is their national motto. We followed Richard and his family playing in the surf, boat safaris and stomach-rolling deep sea fishing.
My trusty 633, SRbs, full Rycote, and lots of sunblock got me through this.
I recently acquired the Pro Sound Effects Hybrid Library and it’s been great wading through it. Look forward to implementing it on sound design stuff in 2015. Peep it here: http://www.prosoundeffects.com/hybrid
The Beer Mile took place out at Circuit of the Americas and it’s a four-lap race where participants must chug an entire 12oz beer at the start of each lap. As you can imagine, there was puking galore. I haven’t been this artistically fulfilled since I was filming a Capybara take a dump in a bowl of water years back.
Spent a REALLY cold few days in Laramie, WY, getting more interviews for the doc currently titled Jump Shot. It’s about the life of Kenny Sailors, a 94 year old man who is credited by some as the inventor of the jump shot in modern basketball. He has a life resume that reads like a Dos Equis spot. It was -18 at one point.
