Friday, January 23, 2009 – Happy Birthday to my other, other half, Angela!!
Jeff is doing an open for a SXSW contest. So last night, we went to the backlot of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios (formally known as Disney-MGM Studios), not to go to work this time *since i.d.e.a.s. was closed*, but to shoot some footage in the employee parking garage. Last night, it was about 40 degrees, which to Florida people is freaking COLD. So here we are driving around with the windows down and the sunroof open to make sure that Jeff gets the right shot.
We use a Canon HV20 HD MiniDV Camcorder, which is an amazing little camera, along with one of my newest purchases, a Joby GP3 GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Flexible Tripod. Joby makes all kinds of different sizes of flexible tripods and I would recommend any of them to someone that is even remotely into taking pictures.
As Jeff was busy working on getting some stuff shot, I was taking full advantage of the parking garage being empty (which it NEVER is when we go to work). I was running around taking pictures of the “water tower” that guests would see while they are on the Backlot Tour of DHS.
Jeff has to be done with the SXSW graphics in about a week..
