    The tripod is for the crane. The crane will have weights on it to counter-balance the camera and boom arm. The tripod has to be VERY sturdy to deal with this. Regular aluminum tripods have a tendency to collapse.
    Good tripods (like Bogen) that are designed for heavy duty work really start around $500 and they can go WAY up from there.
    I'll need a good tripod with a fluid head for filming in general. The one I have now just won't do. I'll keep my eyes open for one of those as they are much easier to find and are not so expensive. I should be able to get one for around $100 on eBay.
    Thanks for offering though. If you are interested in selling yours and it is a fluid head then IM me about it.

    Glad you liked it. There will be some more minor changes, but they won't really change the story at all. Just make it flow a little better. Zoo and I are thinking about how to make it work right in one small portion of the ending.

    Wife just called me at work and told me that my tripod arrived. Can't wait to get home and see how sturdy it is. I'll start the long business of building my crane now. That will be a fun piece of equipment.

    Tripod is huge and strong. Just what I needed. Bought a lot of the things I will need for the crane tonight at Lowes.

    Somebody got access to a drill press? Really need to use one for a little bit...

    Script is undergoing another edit to eliminate another set. This will help simplify the set building needs. At this point we should only need to build a few small walls and small set pieces, rather than entire rooms.

    Once the latest round of script edits is done I will post the script online for anyone who wants to download.

    Hopefully it won't be long after that that I get the storyboards done and get some scans of those posted.

    going to best buy to get my camera looked at either tomorrow or wednesday. Was supposed to get about 30 minutes of footage of something this weekend for my DV editing class, but I didn't b/c my camera is still jacked. Hopefully this fixes it and I'll be able to use it for the class instead of checking a camera out from the school. If this doesn't fix it, I'll call canon and see if I can get it replaced. If not I'll try to ebay it or something so I can get money saved up for my GL-2.

    Any chance I could borrow your camera sometime next weekend to get some footage for my editing class Jared? I'd take really good care of it, I promise! :D

    Got my boots! They are so beautiful! I'll try to get pics up as soon as JD returns my camera.

    Script is in a "final" state.

    Re-doing all the storyboards now. That will take a few weeks.

    At 10:30 at night working in plain old Paint Shop Pro I'm not gonna care too much about my saber glow!

    Saving up the good fx for the film!

    But if you notice the lighting lends itself well to the blue saber. Looks like it is lighting my face!

    I'd like to be a thug. I'm 6'3" and 225-230, so maybe a thug who fights a little. I also may have your short, fatter dude. I have a friend who's about 5'6" and quite round...big time SW freak, too. I'll see if he wants to be in it.

    Thanks! I've got someone in that roll, but I might consider moving him to one of the thug roles instead because he has a good tough look and I don't exaclty know how "round" he is. But 5'6" would be awesome! Exactly what I was thinking.
