I did accomplish a few big things. I purchases a new (used) camera, which will be the camera I'll be shooting my documentaries on. I purchased a SONY PMW-EX1 and got a great deal on it from a friend! He really looked after his equipment and it has low shooting hours. He wanted a quick sale because he just purchased a RED Camera. I'm keen to play with that, too, but for my purposes this SONY will be just fine. I sold my old camera, the SONY HVR-Z1 to B&H Photo Video when I was in NYC this past weekend. It was a great camera, great picture but I realized I needed to move away from tape. Sometimes, I am reluctant to technological change when I need to embrace it.
I still have one more week until the second semester starts. In the meantime, I'm going to nurse this nasty flu I brought from NYC and I have Air Force drill this weekend. I'll try to get some artistic projects done in between. Have to stay motivated!
